INTERNATIONAL YOUTH DAY: Our Rights are Beeing Violated – YPAN

The Young Patriots’ Association of Nigeria (YPAN) identify with young men and women globally to mark the International Youth Day 2020.

YPAN is a noble association of progressive youths in Nigeria who have a common goal of ensuring youth development, economically, socially and politically.

Nigerian youths have recently enjoy tremendous development in all spheres of life particularly in politics and government, much thanks to the unrelenting efforts of the ‘Not Too Young To Run’ campaign and the patriotism of the 8th National Assembly who passed the bill into law.

However, Nigerian youths that make up 60% of the country’s total population and contribute significantly to the nations GDP are not given enough recognition and their basic human rights often trampled upon by the authority in various institution. The recent scenario where youths who were protesting peacefully were molested and arrested across the country is an obvious example. Their request is that government should provide security of lives and property and  curb youth unemployment. These are basic human rights under the 1999 constitution.

To commemorate the International Youth Day, YPAN hereby call on the authority to always act in accordance with the rule of law particularly relating to freedom of speech, provide job for the teeming youths, develop infrastructure, reform our educational system including the Nigeria Police who have been a thorn on the flesh of Nigerians and provide enabling environment for SMEs.
