YOUWIN Awardees Cry To Buhari: Urge Government To Save Job Loss by winningwinner(m): 10:11am On Feb 17, 2016
Awardees of the YOUWIN empowerment programme have urged the federal government to address the issue of unpaid bursaries to thousands of its beneficiaries.

This was contained in a statement signed by the spokesman for YOUWIN 3 Awardees, Adindueme Hans.

He alleged that the Ministry of Finance for nine months has delayed the payment of grants to winners from mainly the third batch of the YOUWIN programme and that failure to do so anytime soon will lead to the loss of 4,500 jobs.

It would be recalled that the YOUWIN programme, which is dedicated to empowering youths, has seen 3,900 Nigerians become self-employed with 22,000 jobs created since the launch of the scheme.

However, the Youwin 3 awardees expressed fears that those missing agreed payments will be forced to sack or downsize their employees, or face the bigger threat of complete closure.

“We fervently call on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Minister of Finance and the Central Bank Governor to urgently intervene in this matter and get the TSA issues urgently resolved to save over 1,500 businesses from imminent collapse. Government must not allow our businesses to fail, as we are partners in efforts to reduce youth unemployment,” Hans said.

It's a pity Nigerians do not appreciate their own. These youths are capable of bringing solution to the Nigerian present economic situation. I know quite a number of them who are really doing a nice job for this country. But most Nigerian youths who could not win the award are taking everything personal. Let the truth be told, they need to be paid, at least to prevent their businesses from collapsing. Should these businesses collapse, the amount of money invested in that project will be a total waste.
I am Nigerian, join me to stand for what is right.

Lalasticlala, without biasness, let's call a spade a spade and do the needful. Anyway, happy birthday my chairman!

This is not all about voting out GEJ, but for the good of us all. Everyone needs a job and government cannot employ all Nigerian youths. The empowerment is good. This is one of the reasons why the Ooni of Ife visited Buhari on Tuesday. If the youths are not empowered, Nigeria will have so much problems in her hands. It is necessary the government heed to their cry and do the needful.

Buhari needs to be wise on how he handles this issue. I think he should find a way to pay them, and afterwards, decide whether or not he wants to continue the program in his own administration.

Please I want to ask, why can't governments in Nigeria whether state or federal, continue with the work on ground of the previous government? Rather they will start the one they cannot finish.

I don't blame our president for not paying attention to youwin.

It is kind of normal, why? Because oga jona used it as part of his achievement during office and also used same as to campaign.

I am not saying it is good but it can happen everywhere in the world. Obamacare is one policy that will be scrapped by a republican if elected as president come 2016.

You sound like one of those that voted for 'change' but are gradually becoming disappointed as you see the 'change'.

You asked for it, take it and stop lamenting!

That one is a fool!
You decide what to do with your money after winning a grant.
It's not a loan.


I'm sure many reasonable people are doing great feats with the grants allocated to them.

In as much as I support their claim I don't buy the blackmail of thousands loosing job through them. Which job are they talking about? Is it the one yet to be created? Or their existing business. If it's their existing business they're talking about what if they didn't win at all. What about those who didn't win? will they just fold up because no grants from government

A government serious about job creation and meaningful engagement of the youths to achieve nation building should not be appealled to to sponsor programs like this. I wonder what the minister for youth affairs, finance, labour, investment etc are doing if they cannot advice the president on this issue. Anyway just hope they will do something quick to avoid collapse of this great program, pls government should look beyond "it is a pdp program" and rather consider its benefits to the nation.
