Participate in politics, Buhari urges youths

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Thursday, urged Nigerian youths to be willing to do something different if they want to see something different.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President spoke during a virtual meeting he had with youths of the ruling All Progressives Congress from the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The statement was titled “President Buhari urges youths to participate in politics, shares APC vision.”

Adesina quoted the President as telling the youth to closely monitor the processes that lead to the emergence of leaders in the political party, and also pick more interest in taking up leadership roles.

The President said, ‘‘Tell your colleagues to go back to their constituencies and join in party registration, attend party meetings, pay your dues, make contributions and bring your youthful energy and zeal to bear on the development of the party right from the unit and ward level up to the national.

“If you want to see something different, you have to be willing to do something different.”

Buhari said the future of the APC lied in strengthened internal democracy, with transparent electoral processes, pro-people policies and programmes, and value of each member’s contribution to the party’s growth.
