The Nigerian Youths Compact on COVID-19 (NYCC) has urged an estate firm, Domak Shelter, to provide jobs for millions of jobless Nigerian youths from the proposed Domak Garden City.
Mr Gambo Haruna, the NYCC National Chairman, made the appeal when he led National Steering Committee members of the organisation on a courtesy visit to the Domak office on Wednesday in Abuja.
Haruna explained that in the real estate world, Domak Shelter was expected to play a very significant and key role in mitigating the impact of COVID-19 in Nigeria.
He said this can only be done through the provision of employment opportunities in the real estate value chain.
According to him, NYCC-19 is an integrated Framework and Mechanism for Youth Engagement and Peer Intervention Strategy (PIS), which is also designed to sensitise.
“It is also to mobilise Nigerian youths and young persons toward massive and enhanced response to fight the COVID-19 Pandemic in Nigeria,” he said.
He also explained that the compact was set up as a realistic and practicable action plan to face the emerging post COVID-19 economic and social realities.
The chairman, however, stressed the need for partnership with the firm, adding that one of NYCC-19 mandates was to provide job opportunities for youth across the country.
He commended the humanitarian support of the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Domak Shelter Limited, Mr Kingsley Azonobi, to the less privileged.
Haruna also commended other services the company was providing to Nigerians across the country, especially relating to youth employment.
Responding, the company CEO, Mr Kingsley Azonobi, expressed delight and his passion on youth development.
He quoted United Nations as saying, “Nigeria is one of the most populous countries in the world, but noted that majority of young people were the most neglected segment of the population in the country.’’
Azonobi, a philanthropist, who provide humanitarian interventions, pledged his endorsement and support to NYCC-19.
He expressed the readiness of the firm to partner with the NYCC-19 team toward the realisation of its aims and objectives.
