Vice President Yemi Osinbajo yesterday revealed that 30 youth with vibrant technology-based ideas and innovations would be hosted by the Presidency next month.

He said that the programme which is tagged Aso Villa Demo Day was a reflective of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration’s appreciation of the enormous creativity among Nigerian youths.
Osinbajo also said the Buhari administration was aware that in spite of the advances in education and technology, inequality of access and opportunities still exists which the presidency wants to redress.
The Vice President spoke while receiving the United Nations Special Envoy on Youth, Mr. Ahmad Alhendawi, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday.
He eulogized Nigerian youth as being “very creative and are every where trying to make space for themselves.”
While disclosing that the 30 most innovative and talented young people where picked out of the several thousands of young Nigerians who participated in a competitive selection process, Osinbajo stated.
“We are looking at a new generation of people who have the vision, who have a different way of thinking” and whose “energy and creativity,” will benefit the nation.
