- By Raphael Jov
The Youth wing of Nigeria’s rulling party, All Progressives Congress, APC under the Leadership of Dayo Israel, says it has taken a major strategy, by setting up a High Level work group. The group is co-chaired by Ahmad Salihijo and Solape Hammond.
National Youth Leader of the APC, Dayo Israel made the disclosure while receiving a report from a committee, set up to create a Technical Platform to provide support to young members who have purchased their nomination forms or intending to purchase before the expiration of the datelines before the primaries.
He said the group is saddled with the responsibility to strengthen the participation of young people in the political process beyond the use of young APC members as political thugs or mere voters.
The group is also to lobby policy makers across the country to ensure the success and emergence of credible young aspirants in the forthcoming primaries.
Co-Chairman of the committee, Ahmed Sahlijo Ahmed said that the committee was able to meet with several State governors and have been seeing a lot of positive results.
The Youth said the 2023 general elections is a watershed election and a highly anticipated election for the youth in Nigeria.
