Nigerian realtor, Ibrahim, bags ECOWAS youth ambassador
Having contributed to the socio-economic growth of the West African sub-region, the board of West African Youth Council, the youth arm of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has appointed Nigerian realtor, Noah Ibrahim as its ambassador.
Ibrahim, who is the chief executive officer of Novarick Homes and Properties, a fast-growing real estate development company based in Lagos, Nigeria, was honoured based on its contribution and commitment to providing affordable, eco-friendly housing and creation of green environment within the region.
The West African Youth Council (WAYC) is positioned to harness the potentials of its youths and mobilise active force to achieve a well-rounded social, cultural and economic integration. It remains a resource to the ECOWAS as more than 64 percent of its population falls under age of 24.
The organisation’s main objective is to raise the awareness of young people, create a framework for intercultural dialogue, support the diversity of ideas and work with key inter-governmental institutions like the African Union Commission, United Nations, Commonwealth and Agence de Francais, among others.
The West African Youth Council which is headquartered in Cape Verde, has made a lot of monumental gains and achievements by promoting peace, security, justice and development to unite the region. It also provides a free platform for youth’s participation in politics, socio-economic activities and governance in West Africa.
Announcing the Regional Award through a letter signed by the president, ECOWAS Youth Council, Emmanuel William, noted that the appointment was not unconnected with his laudable antecedents of dedication, hard work and diligence in the area of service to humanity. He also praised Ibrahim’s work as an advocate and promoter of entrepreneurship for African youths.
Speaking in Lagos after the receipt of ECOWAS ambassador, Ibrahim said, “This recognition will encourage me to do more in the area of fostering peace, unity, collaboration and developing new innovation for the benefit of the entire West African states and the continent as a whole.”
