It was revealed that the Berlin-based Institute for Cultural Diplomacy said on Monday that it has concluded arrangements to launch an international programme to support Nigerian youths. The Institute made the disclosure in a statement issued by Mr Dickson Omoregie, its Nigerian Representative, and made available to the Newsmen in Abuja. The statement quoted Omoregie as saying that the programme would be within the framework of enabling greater access to educational and professional development opportunities.
He said the development opportunities would include financial scholarships for more Nigerians youth. He added that the organization would also officially launch the programme during an international conference, scheduled to hold in Abuja soon. Meanwhile, a parallel meeting to the 70th UN General Assembly in New York sometime in September 2015, was being scheduled where the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, would meet with some European ex-Presidents for further developmental discussions.
“In the framework of this programme to support Nigerian youths, the ICD will enable access to higher education opportunities and programmes for many Nigerians in Europe. “Ìt will also open an international career center in Abuja and Berlin, where Nigerians will also be able to receive professional support and information, as well as job opportunities,” he said.
