Welcome Message from the Founding President
“Be the change you want to see in the World” -Mahatma Ghandi
Life is driven by purpose. I found my purpose and fulfilment in working with young people. And for young people.
Young people are critical assets for socio-economic development and represent the hope of the Nation only to the extent to which their demographic advantages are deliberately harnessed, positively engaged and channeled toward productive contribution to Nation building.
I am inspired by the potentials of young people which find expressions in their raw energies, creative ingenuity, and innovative inclinations. This stimulates in me a deep desire to assist in nurturing them to unleash their capabilities productively.
It is clear young people are faced with two critical challenges bordering on social and economic deprivations. I am commitment to continuously identify these gaps and drive outcome-oriented intervention programmes that can help address them sustainably.
It is my inalienable affiliation with young people that has led me to establish the Nigerian Youth Chamber of Commerce. This NYCC fosters synergies, and partnerships with strategic stakeholders to facilitate collective work for economic empowerment of young people through functional entrepreneurship and leadership.
I am convinced that my modest contribution to working with young people will help build the future that we all desire. Wont you rather join us? Together, we can change the world.
Amb. (Dr.) Peter Ayim, GGA, CBA
