In celebration of the year 2023 international youth day, the Mayoress of Ikosi Isheri LCDA Princess Samiat Abolanle Bada felicitates with all the youths in the LCDA, Lagos State, and by extension Nigerian Youths for their believe in the government of these days.

She therefore reassured the youths of her support and her commitment to make Ikosi Isheri LCDA a better society in which all the youth would be proud to live.

According to her, apart from running an all inclusive government, where the youths plays a major roles in Ikosi Isheri, most of our government empowerment programs,if not all was targeted toward empowering the youth, example of the recent one was provision of Free 250 GCE forms to indigent resident. Below is the full address of the Mayoress 

"Youths are not merely the Leaders of tomorrow, but they stand as the Leaders of today, embodying our nation's most precious resource. In nurturing our Youth, we fortify the very foundation of our Nation.

Today marks a significant occasion designated by the United Nations, resonating across the globe to honor and celebrate the dynamic energy of our youth.

The potential of our youths is a double-edged sword, capable of forging positive development and catalyzing generational transformations. Yet, it's imperative for each young individual to introspect and ask themselves: What principles have I championed?

As stewards of both the present and the future, I seize this moment to implore the Nigerian youth to unite, kindle patriotism, and enshrine peace within their hearts.

Comprising the largest demographic in our nation, the youth play an indispensable role in propelling our progress forward. I earnestly entreat our cherished youths to resist being ensnared by societal pitfalls and the destabilizing forces that seek to exploit them.

To the youth of Ikosi-isheri LCDA, I extend a fervent plea to stand as beacons for growth, champions of development, proponents of good governance, and advocates for justice, equity, peace, unity, love, and patriotism.

True to the pledges made during our electoral campaign and consistently demonstrated in practice, youth affairs remain a paramount concern close to our hearts. The enduring commitment to youth-oriented developmental initiatives, multifaceted empowerment programs, and transformative interventions underscore our unwavering dedication.

Warmest congratulations to the young souls across the globe, on this momentous occasion.

With utmost respect,

Princess Samiat Abolanle Bada
