A group called Conscience Nigeria has expressed its delight with the President’s decision to appoint Jude Imagwe as the his special assistant on Youth and Student Matters.
The Conscience Nigeria group believes Imagwe will bring his wealth of experience to bear as the immediate past president of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) in this new capacity.
The group applauded Imagwe’s appointment saying the act gives a “solid voice to the youth constituency.”
In a statement made available to newsmen by the group’s executive director, Comrade Tosin Adeyanju, it said, “Jude has distinguished himself as a former students’ leader and has played a very active role in youth matters all over the country sacrificing time and resources in the quest to the make the voice of the youths count.
“We have no doubt in his capacity to unite Nigerian youths and students and make their issues count before President Jonathan.”
The Conscience Nigeria solicited the support of all Nigerian youths for the success of Imagwe saying, “We reckon that he cannot do it alone, we must unite behind him, encourage him and support him to give us better representation. If the people in the presidency know that he has our overwhelming support, he will always have his way in fighting and defending our rights.
“He needs our collective support, he cannot do it alone, but we should not unnecessarily disturb or distract him,” the group cautioned.
The group commended President Jonathan for his choice and pledged its unalloyed support for his administration’s vision to transform Nigeria.
