The DG said the government was committed to improving the economy and making it beneficial to everyone.
He assured that the President Bola Tinubu-led administration would focus on youth empowerment, with a view to incorporating their energy and technological skills into developing the country.
“The President would evolve a policy that will see youths and women actively participating in the implementation.
“The youths will be the driving force of all decisions in the present administration because of the importance that the leadership of this nation has placed on tapping the potentials which abound in the largest segment of the population,” Ahmed said.
