The National Youth Council of Nigeria Rivers State chapter says the move to review its 2014 NYCN bye-law is aimed at creating job opportunities for youths in the State.
The State Chairman of NYCN Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo stated this during the extra ordinary state congress of the body in Port Harcourt.
Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo said youths of Rivers State will be given special consideration in employment by multi-nationals operating in the State when the bye-law is reviewed.
Former youth leader Marvin Yobana enjoined members of the youth council of Nigeria to agree to the review for peaceful co-existence.
Meanwhile, the Coordinator Forum of the National Youth Council of Nigeria NYCN has faulted the planned review of the NYCN constitution by the State Chairman of the body Sukubo Sara-Igbe.
The Secretary of the forum and the Coordinator of NYCN Oyigbo Chapter Chisom Gbali while briefing newsmen in Port Harcourt described the planned review of the constitution of NYCN as unconstitutional.
