According to APC National Youth Leader Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed, adopting the recommendation by the party’s leadership led by the Caretaker Committee led by H.E Mai Mala Buni has rekindled the hopes of millions of progressive youths, who until now had been dispirited from participating in the party activities and holding elective leadership positions within the party especially at the grassroots level.
Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed added that this was critical to attracting the energy, commitment and brains of young people in running the affairs of the party and giving them a sense of ownership.
Ahmed said a National Youth Lobby Group had also been set up to meet with the party’s national leaders for effective delivery of the youth mandate.
The committees are to engage with Party Leaders, Governors, Legislators, Ministers, Elders and other critical stakeholders within their zones in ensuring that at least many party positions are manned by youths at the lower levels so as to attract the energy, commitment and brains of young people in running the affairs of the party and giving them a sense of ownership and therefore commitment.
