EYFC 2021:Toyin Amuzu Charges FG To Invest More In Youth, Sports Sector


Founder of a non-governmental organization, Toyin Amuzu Foundation TAF, Chief Toyin Amuzu has advised President Muhamadu Buhari-led administration to invest more in the youth sector and empower Nigerian youths accordingly, as they remian inevitable assets for meaningful development in the country.


The Egba-born politician, Chief Amuzu gave the piece of advise on Sunday, while speaking to newsmen at the end of the final match of ‘Egba Youth Football Championship (EYFC) held at the Muda Lawal Stadium, Asero Abeokuta.


Amuzu said, “the federal government must at all levels prioritise empowering the young people and invest more in the youth sector of the country, by discovering their skills and talents to help in moving the country forward”.


The NGO boss also said that – “through my foundation, ‘Toyin Amuzu Foundation’, I have empowered many young people in Ogun state through educational and sporting activities and I can say boldly that the gesture has really turned to big investment for the gateway state because, those who were empowered have been making the state proud as they keep winning medals from different events”.


The philanthropist added that – “just last month, a lot of future stars were discovered at my talents hunt programme tagged – “Toyin Amuzu Abeokuta Talents Hunt Show” and I am pleased to inform everyone that one of the contestants at the event whose stage name is ‘Mariano’ is about to release her debut single with one of the A-list Nigerian musicians”.


The real -estate mogul further noted that “when the organisers of Egba Youth Football Championship approached me for sponsorship, I knew it was an opportunity for me to be part of the process of discovering more hidden talents, which I supported wholeheartedly. Today, I am very sure that ‘football scouts’, both from the local and international communities must have seen players that are good enough and fit to play in the local and international leagues. This is why we have to start and continue investing in our young people to give them more opportunities to excel”.


He also emphasised that a survey carried out by his Foundation last year confirmed Nigeria has a large population of job seekers that grows every day and no enough jobs opportunity available for all young people entering the labour market, but despite the wide range of challenges affecting youth employment, his foundation has never been distracted, rather, he has continued to discover clear potentials for young women and men, and has been giving out decent employment to them.


He concluded that – “a nation that does not invest in its young people is going no where. The future belongs to the youths and the government at all levels should invest on the youths and empower them accordingly. If my foundation can do it for the youths and get positive results, then, nothing should stop the federal government from doing same because, it is obvious that the federal government needs the Nigerian youths most”.
