The Scramble for Creek haven has raised a lot of concern in Bayelsa State especially amongst Youth Leaders from diverse Youth Organization and the Leadership of the Nigerian Youth Parliament in Bayelsa State is not left out.
Hon. Atti Joshua Moses a foremost award winning Youth Leader in Bayelsa State who is the Special Assistant to the Bayelsa State Governor on Students Affairs and member Nigerian Youth Parliament while addressing Newsmen has this to say;
“The Youths of any given Nation or State is the engine room of development and critical stakeholders in Governance but on many occasions they have been relegated to the background without an iota of recognition or empowerment and this has led to several uprising in many states and Bayelsa State is not an exception.
Bayelsa State will soon usher in her fifth Governor that will succeed His Excellency, Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson who has been an hardened Agent of Youth Development especially in the Area of Politics and Education and its Pertinent that his Successor should raise the bar.
We need a Youth Development advocate to be our Next Governor, and his blue print should be made public to attract critical analysis to test the pragmatic nature of his blue print that will go beyond a Utopian concept or a mere manifesto.
There is a Stunted growth amongst Youth Leaders in Bayelsa State with Politics as its mainstream endeavour and this alone cannot attract development to the State. We need our Youths to be intellectually capacitated to venture into Entrepreneurship,Communication Technology,Sports and Entertainment,Science and technology,Agriculture and Educationists etc.
The Youths of Bayelsa State cannot get to stardom individually without the deliberate attempt of a Governor to critically embark on the above listed endeavours. We dont need a Joker or an Orator to be our Governor we need a Youth Development Advocate to be our Governor”.
