First Lady Oluremi Tinubu has advised Nigerian youths to expand their horizons and financial status by exploring the different programmes of the government.

She advised on Monday while welcoming members and executives of the Youth Wing of the Christian Association of Nigeria (YOWICAN) to the State House, Abuja, amidst the Easter celebrations.

Mrs Tinubu received the association with the exchange of the season’s greetings and prayer that God would continually lift the nation and its youths to greater heights.

“I congratulate you all for the giant strides you have been able to achieve since you started. All your programmes are quite laudable; however, you all have to align yourselves with the government programmes.

“I want you to key into what the government is doing. You have to be innovative, as there are different innovative ways of farming now,” she said.

She also encouraged the executives to involve female youth in their executive arm.

“There won’t be a better world without women. They should be part of decision-making since they are the ones advocating.

“We have to start talking about who we are as a nation without throwing away our culture,” Mrs Tinubu said.

Earlier, YOWICAN national chairman Enwere Belusochukwu solicited the support of Mrs Tinubu over the planned building of a national resource centre for skill acquisition training for youths.

Mr Belusochukwu said Mrs Tinubu was their grand patroness, recalling that her investiture was held in 2023.

“We will continue to pray for her and Mr President for God to always guide, guard, protect them, and to always direct them right.

“I want to tell you authoritatively that all Christian youths in Nigeria are ever ready to align themselves with the vision of President Bola Tinubu,” he said.
