The appointment of Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim, as the Minister for Youth Affairs in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is a significant step forward in recognizing the importance of youth representation in the government. As the National President of Distinguish Ladies in Politics , I extend my heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Ibrahim on her well-deserved nomination.
This nomination carries a profound significance, especially considering the recent press release by Princess Balikis Bello on June 13, 2023. Balikis Bello, who contested for the position of National Youth Leader at the AASG convention, passionately advocated for increased female representation in the government. Her plea, directed towards the President, resonated with many who believe in the power and potential of young females in leadership roles.
Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim’s appointment reflects a positive response to Princess Balikis Bello’s call for inclusivity. It demonstrates that the government is listening to the aspirations of the youth and acknowledges the vital role young women play in shaping the nation’s future. As the Minister for Youth Affairs, Dr. Ibrahim has an incredible opportunity to champion the rights and interests of young people, ensuring that their voices are heard and their concerns addressed.
In this role, Dr. Ibrahim can focus on implementing policies and initiatives that empower the youth, foster innovation, and create opportunities for personal and professional growth. Her leadership can inspire other young women to pursue careers in politics and public service, paving the way for a more diverse and representative government.
As the National President of Distinguish Ladies in Politics (D-LIPS), I pledge my support to Dr. Jamila Bio Ibrahim and her mission to uplift the youth of Nigeria. Together, we can work towards a brighter future where young people, regardless of gender, are at the forefront of positive change and progress in our beloved country.
