Nigeria’s ﬁrst National Youth Policy1 (NYP), the framework that guides all matters related to youth development in Nigeria, was ﬁrst formulated in 1989. This was followed up with a new National Youth Policy under a democratic dispensation in 2001 by the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports. The 2001 NYP made provision for a review every 5 years. A revised one was developed and adopted by the Federal Ministry of Youth Development in 2009. In 2016, the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development (FMYSD) — the ministry responsible for youths in Nigeria — kick-started a review process that is two years late. Nevertheless, for such a document to be comprehensive, it is important that Nigerian youths, for whom the policy was originally designed, are part of the process.
