Nigerian Young Professionals Support Families of Nigerian Fallen Heroes

At “An Evening with the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeriaon Sunday night in Lagos, President GoodluckEbele Jonathan, GCFR was presented with an Heritage Bank’s Cheque of N10 Million Naira by Mr Moses SilokoSiasia (Chairman, NYPF) on behalf of the Nigerian Young Professionals to support families of Fallen Hero’s and identify with the Nation’s Armed Forces at this time of frequent attacks by the insurgent.


In a bid to further enlighten young people on the need to cast a vote for the right candidate in the 2015 Nigeria general elections, the Nigerian Young Professional Forum held an interactive session with President GoodluckEbele Jonathan in Lagos at the Prestigious Eko Hotels and Suite.




The event which was tagged “Making an Informed Decision Ahead of the General Elections” had Ali Baba set the ball rolling. Nigerian Young Professionals in the UK and USA streamed live to theevent, enabling them to contribute and directly ask President Jonathan questions as it affects Young Professionals in Nigeria and in the diaspora.

Mr.Siasia charged young professionals to vote wisely as the event was an avenue to declare our position as we throw our weight behind President Jonathan re-election bid. Adding that we are privileged to be living at a time when the range of opportunities open to young people is greater than ever. “It is a time when we can truly benefit from establishing links with each other to develop an effective professional network to positively impact on our country”.

President Jonathan on his part promised that he will continue to encourage young people in their businesses, educational pursuits and other areas of endeavour thereby empowering  them to be able to take up positions at all levels.

The President was responding to a question on his plans for young Nigerians, especially below the age of 40. He said that young people were very important and needed to be encouraged to maximise their potential. President Jonathan promised that in the next four years, if given the mandate, he would continue to build on the gains of the last four years and improve the lives of the young Nigerians.

According to him, his Administration has just sworn in one of the youngest Nigerian ministers and will give the young people more of such appointments. He said as a Nation, the country must prepare for its future by investing in the young people. We must work hard and encourage the young people,’’ he said.
The President also promised to intensify the fight against corruption and ensure that the problem of stigmatisation of Nigerians became a thing of the past over the next four years. He also talked about his fight against corruption using technology like the Integrated Personnel & Payroll Information System (IPPIS) and promised to clear corruption through such innovative measures in the oil & Gas industry.
President Jonathan expressed appreciation to the young professionals that joined the event online reminding them that they are ambassadors of Nigeria and should conduct themselves in the best possible way.

Hmmm Jona can never change! Always using people's life and death to campaign. So desperate and heartless. The fallen heroes u refused to provide for, now u're using their deaths to campaign! Shame on Jona and his clan. Your end is near! Nigeria can no longer take this heartlessness and lack of empathy anymore. May the souls of our faithful fallen heroes departed, through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen

May God rest my husband's soul. He died fighting for Nigeria, he died bcos his weapon failed him. GEJ keeps doing this evil thing! Using their deaths to campaign. You will meet ur Waterloo soon for using people's lives to play politics. Your Judgement is for God alone. Enough said. God will give victory to Buhari so that Nigeria can be liberated from the hands of this green snake called Jonathan and also his sycophants and of course his unruly wife who does nothing bit incites violence everywhere she goes.
