Olawale Ajimotokan in Abuja Vice President Prof. Yemi Osinbajo has said that the present administration is grooming and positioning young people to take up leadership roles through a number of programmes. The vice president, who was represented by the Head of Service, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan stated this at the 2021 Annual Directors’ Conference of the Institute of Directors, held in Abuja. Osinbajo said the Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P) being implemented through the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation was to identify and train 100 middle Level officers on grade Level 10-14 within the public service annually and enhance their leadership potentials. Other leadership development programmes, he added, is the Build Your Brand (BYB) initiative which is a leadership development programme designed for young business leaders. The NextGen Leaders Programme, he added, is an inter-Generational mentoring and networking programme that mobilises and connects youth with structured support system from committed adults to remove impediments to their growth while the youth also support teenagers who are about to become youth. The two initiatives are being driven by the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development. Also, through the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment, the vice president said the Young Professionals Programme (YPP) is being implemented to build a workforce of young and competent individuals that can champion economic growth and diversification through research, skills development and innovations. “The programme is also intended to ensure that young individuals are equipped to properly understand the challenges and dynamics of public sector management and administration,” he added. According to him, in 2018, the “Not too Young to Run” bill signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari dropped the age qualification for the office of the President from 30 to 40 years; Governor from 30 to 35, Senate 30 to 35 and House of Representatives 25 to 30. The federal government has initiated a Young Aspirant Leadership Fellowship (YALF) to complement efforts towards driving the legislation, he added. “These and many more actions too numerous to mentioned are aimed at engaging the younger generation and giving them required exposure to enable them take up leadership positions” he further said. Osinbajo urged the Institute of Directors to remain proactive and be in the forefront of promoting effective governance through the mentorship and building of the capacity of younger talents.
