The Nigerian Youth Parliament has embarked on oversight functions across the federation ahead of the 2020 National Youth Parliamentary Honor.
The oversight was kicked off in Bauchi State with the Commissoner of Youth and Sports hosting the team of Youth Parliamentarians on behalf of the Governor.
The oversight tour is intended to carry out assessment on state governments' performance in the areas of Youth and Social Development, Education and Agriculture, Infrastructure as well as other sectors of the economy.
It is expected that at the end of the assignment, a comprehensive report will be sent to both the leadership of the Senate and the House of Representatives and will further be reviewed and forwarded to the Presidency as a report from the Nigerian Youth Parliament's training on oversight.
The purpose of this assignment is to expose Youth Parliamentarians to the other function of the legislature i.e Oversight Function. It is also an eye opener and a wake up call to Governments.
