IYD: PDP Tasks President Buhari On Youth Inclusion In Governance



Muhammadu Buhari

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari to give Nigerian youth space for leadership in his administration.

While celebrating the resilience, courage, industry and sense of unity among Nigerians youth on the occasion of the world International Youth Day (IYD) which was marked yesterday, Wednesday, the PDP said they have proven to be one of the most hardworking in the world “contrary to being tagged “lazy” by the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration’.

The party said the 2020 IYD theme: “Youth Engagement for Global Action” aptly portrays a celebration of the resourcefulness, ingenuity and creativity of the Nigerians youth as dynamic players in global competitiveness.

This was contained in a statement signed and issued by the PDP spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan on Wednesday.

“The party urges President Buhari to have more faith in Nigerian youths and grant them space for leadership participation just like the past PDP administration,” Ologbondiyan said in the statement.

“The PDP applauds Nigerian youth for their steadfastness towards the development of our nation as well as their active participation in our nation’s democratic process.

“Our party had always believed in the ability, talent and capabilities of the Nigerian youth with which they have excelled in various national and international fields including politics and leadership; commerce and industry, sports, science and technology, healthcare, aviation, banking, media, entrepreneurship and wealth creation among others.

“The PDP says the Nigerian youth has been resilient in personal and national development despite the setback of anti-people and divisive policies of the All Progressive Congress (APC) administration.

“The party stresses that Nigerians youth have proven to be one of the most hardworking in the world contrary to being tagged “lazy” by the APC administration, which has failed to articulate effective growth and development policies for them in the last five years.

“The PDP urges the Nigerian youth to remain united and steadfast to the Nigerian project and not be deterred by the current setbacks being witnessed under the APC administration.”
