Newly Sworn-in Executive 

The YALI Movement was initially founded by the former President of the United States Of America, Barrack Obama to aid Young Africans to equip Youth in becoming better Leaders. The network has since then been dedicated in its course as a lot of Young Persons in Nigeria and Africa have their unique YALI story to tell.

YALI movement and many others out there are platforms that serve Young Persons to the best of their efforts and I say it is high time the youth stoping lamenting the plight of the Nation's economy but have a mental shift and try to engage in the community as well as personal developments.
