Manifesto for Tare Magbei, Information Officer Aspirant of the Ijaw Youth Council (IYC), Western Zone


Fellow Ijaw youths, I stand before you aspiring to be the Information Officer of the Ijaw Youth Council, Western Zone.


Our region is at a pivotal point in history, and we have the power to shape our future through unity and effective communication. Hence, my Amplification Agenda.


The Amplification Agenda is built on three foundational pillars: Reformation, Transformation, and Liberation. Together, we will amplify our voices, preserve our heritage, and secure a prosperous future for all.


Reformation: Reinventing Our Communication Channels


To create a robust and transparent communication framework, we need a reformation that focuses on modernizing and optimizing how we share information.


1. Digital Platforms: Establishing a dedicated social media presence to provide real-time updates, news, and resources for the Zone.


2. Transparency: Instituting regular press briefings and statements to keep our community informed about council activities, decisions, and resolutions.


3. Engagement: Hosting interactive forums, town hall meetings, and webinars to facilitate direct communication between the council and the Ijaw youth, ensuring that every voice is heard and valued.


Transformation: Empowering Through Knowledge and Skills


Transformation is essential for our community to adapt and thrive in a rapidly changing world. This involves equipping our youth with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed.


1. Educational Initiatives: Partnering with educational institutions and organizations to offer scholarships, internships, and training programs focused on leadership, entrepreneurship, and technology.


2. Skill Development: Launching workshops and vocational training programs to enhance the employability and entrepreneurial capabilities of our youth.


3. Mentorship Programs: Establishing mentorship networks that connect young Ijaw individuals with experienced professionals for guidance and support.


Liberation: Advocating for Rights and Opportunities


Liberation is about advocating for the rights and opportunities that our community deserves, ensuring that every Ijaw youth can achieve their full potential.


1. Advocacy: Actively engaging with government bodies, NGOs, and international organizations to advocate for policies and initiatives that benefit our communities.


2. Cultural Preservation: Promoting and preserving our rich cultural heritage through events, media, and educational programs that celebrate our history and traditions.


3. Economic Empowerment: Initiating projects and partnerships aimed at creating jobs, supporting local businesses, and fostering economic growth in our region.


The Amplification Agenda is a call to action for every Ijaw youth to join hands in shaping a brighter future for our community.


As your Information Officer, I pledge to be your voice, your advocate, and your ally in this journey. Together, we will reform our communication, transform our capabilities, and liberate our potential.


Let us rise to the challenge and amplify the Ijaw spirit with unity, transparency, and unwavering determination.
