The Chairman of Media and Publicity Committee for the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership registration and revalidation exercise in Oyo State, Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan has tasked the Nigerian Youths to form the majority from the grassroots byparticipating fully in the on going exercise .
Alhaji Olaosebikan who made the appeal on Saturday while participating in a Fresh FM 105.9 Ibadan programme, South West Political Circuit pointed out thatthe ongoing membership registration exercise of the APC offers a unique opportunity for the Nigerian Youths to achieve all the positive things they set to achieve with the End SARS Protest if they are prepared to end the passivity of quality youths in active politics.
According to the APC Chieftain, “all the youths need do is to register for the party in good numbers at their various polling units and form the majority from the grassroots, where the lines of leadership and control begins”.
Alhaji Olaosebikan pointed out thatonce they form the majority at the polling units and subsequently at the wards, they are in good stead to take the control of the party and get well involved in forming the government at different levels.
He emphasized that achieving the lofty idea of decent living, functional and youth friendly police, gainful employment for all and good governance would become easy as they would choose only those people with sufficient capacity, competence and care to lead the party from the ward to the national level.
The APC Chieftain charged the youth to take full advantage of the opening provided by the well timed registration exercise taking place in more than two years before our next general elections to use the exercise in positioning themselves for leadership and greatness.
Likened the present political situation in the country to what transpired in the 50s and 60s when the youths took the advantage of education to take over the leadership of the country from the elderly, Alhaji Olaosebikan said the present youth should use the digital knowledge which they were born into positively against the analogue system of the old to propagate themselves constructively along witht heir numerical strength.
The APC Chieftain therefore urged the youths in the 351 wards of Oyo State to mobilize themselves fruitfully and register for the All Progressives Congress , the only party that is ready to welcome them on board and give them opportunity to develop and lead.
“As already assured by the Chairman of the Membership Revalidation and Registration Committee for Oyo State, Hon. Abubakar Bawa Bwari, there would not be any discrimination or exclusion of any sort in Oyo State and that the entire process has been made easy and seamless with the adequate trainings of supervisors at all levels”, he said.
