As young professionals, you have a prominent role to play in bringing the nation out of the present economic mess. The political class are looking unto you to set an agenda that will be beneficial to all and sundry.

On assumption of office over two years ago, I made my stand known on the issues affecting the youth, especially the various professional groups. This administration will do everything under the ambit of law to support your activities, which are geared towards the economic development of the Country.

The era of young professionals being used as political tools is over in our Country. Take this message to your respective states and let the youth know that, they are valuable assets to the Country.

As you meet this weekend in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state, I wish you a fruitful deliberation.
