Press Statement by APC Northwest Youths Stakeholders
As recourse to the zoning arrangement stipulated by the All Progressive congress for the National youth leader to emerge from the southwest, it is therefore a moral responsibility and mission on us as the North west youths stakeholders to ensure that the right candidate emerge as the Youth leader.
There’s no doubt that the youth represent the second largest demography after the women in our great party, it then becomes imperative to make our stance known on the Youth leadership quest of the largest ruling political party in Africa.
In lieu of this, we would like to categorically state that we are solidly behind and support the aspiration of Dada Olusegun as the best candidate for the position of the National Youth leader of the APC. We believe in his vast experience on youth politics and engagement. Not alone that he is the top candidate for the position, his acceptability across the six (6) geo political zones becomes endearing as Dada’s leadership capacity is well known and documented across different progressives youth groups
We also stand firm in our belief that Dada is well qualified to continue the works of our brother and leader, Barr. Ismaeel Ahmed whom his office has recorded tremendous progress for the youths. The latest progress was the President Buhari’s readiness to support the youth at the party’s convention for elective post and directive to draft youths into Federal boards and committees.
Going by Dada’s manifesto; “Eliminating the rat race”, we are very confident he would build on what we have achieved so far and continue to transform the youth wing of the party. Dada Olusegun is that aspirant ready to lead and as thorough driven member, his antecedents and loyalty speaks high volume of his character and passion
We believe his emergence will promote youth inclusion, unity and progress of the APC.
