Dr Limota Goroso, Executive Director, International Women Communication Centre (IWCC) Nigeria, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to open the space for younger generation in the Federal Civil Service.
This, Goroso said would enable youths to inject new ideas and innovations that would impact on governance and policy implementation.
Goroso made the call at the official inauguration of the IWCC Women Training Centre in Ajase-Ipo, Irepodun Local Government Area of Kwara.
She said that young and talented youths needed to be given opportunities to take over from the old hands in driving the public service for efficient service delivery.
“I want urge President Muhammadu Buhari to open the “space for job creation. Let the civil service be driven by new ideas and innovations of young and talented youths.
“Let our graduates get jobs in the civil service by creating extra-tables and chairs to accommodate new hands and new knowledge”, she said
The women rights advocate, however, said that Nigerians should support the Federal Government to succeed, saying if he succeeds, Nigeria will succeed.
She cautioned that the people would be responsible for success or failure of the government, hence the need for collective support.
“There is too much poverty and insecurity in the land. I want to appeal to all Nigerians to bury their grievances and join hands to make our country a safe and better place for all of us.
“I also want to enjoin our politicians to please be at peace with one another and always remember that we came to this world with nothing and we shall go back with nothing.
“Let us work together on things that unite us as Nigerians and make the country a better place for all and sundry.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is a patriotic, purposeful, responsible, conscientious and trustful Nigerian and his main aim in life is about how to make it great.
“As we all know, he is a very thoughtful, honest and conscience pricking human being, whose love for Nigeria since 1985 that he took over as Head of State, is unquantifiable,” she said.
The IWCC boss said the President constantly had a dream to transform Nigeria to a great Nation and that was the reason most people gave him the chance to rule again.
On the facility, Goroso said that the idea to establish the centre in Ajae-Ipo was conceived out of her genuine love for humanitarian services and improvement in the lives of women folks.
According to her, the duration of training for the first intakes will be four to six months and at no cost to the students.
The Olupo of Ajase-Ipo, Oba Sikiru Atanda who inaugurated the facility urged the no fewer than 20 female trainees to be up and doing and avoid absenteeism.
The traditional ruler advised the intakes to exhibit seriousness throughout the duration of the training as this was the only way to encourage the centre to train more students from the senatorial district.
He applauded the IWCC leadership for deeming it fit to create a branch of the centre in his kingdom, pointing out that it would enhance economic status of the area as soon as they start putting the knowledge acquired into use.
Mrs Afusat Ibrahim, Permanent Secretary, state Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, emphasized the importance of women in the society, saying that they have been responsible for the upkeep of matrimonial homes.
Ibrahim noted that the administration of the present administration in the state has set the pace in giving female folk sense of belonging in the scheme of things.
The permanent secretary commended IWCC for its positive impact and contribution to development of women in the society.
