APC youths appeal for more inclusion in Tinubu’s govt
Written by Taiwo Adekola on August 23, 2023
The youths in the All Progressives Congress have appealed to President Bola Tinubu, to keep his promise to give youth inclusion a high priority in his administration by giving the youths opportunities to excel in his government.
This was contained in a letter sent to the President and made available to correspondents yesterday, in Akure, Ondo State. The letter, titled, ‘Clarion call for a purposeful minister of youth that is fit for the job,’ was signed by the 36 youth leaders across the 36 states of the federation and Abuja.
The letter reads in parts, “The Forum of youth leaders of the All Progressives Congress, comprising the 36 states and the FCT, wishes to commend the current administration led by His Excellency, Bola Amed Tinubu, President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria for being youth-friendly in the discharge of his responsibilities as the President of the country, particularly his youth-friendly policies so far.
The youths urged President Tinubu to allow the APC youth leaders to have contribution towards the choice of the youth for the position (minister of youths). The group also disassociates itself from a purported statement allegedly authorized by the zonal youth leaders.
“While we thank you for the privilege and confidence so far extended to the youth constituency, it is our prayers that you consider our appeal on this very important matter. We wish you continued greatness and success in the service of our beloved fatherland” they stated.
