….Calls for youths participation in politics
By Richard Thomas, Ibadan
The Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin has appealed to the leadership of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the country to give more opportunities for youth to participate in future political activities at the local government, State, and the national levels.
The Speaker made the appeal in Benin when he led PDP youths on a visit to the National Vice Chairman, South-South of the party, Chief Dan Orbih.
Hon. Ogundoyin said the PDP must put machineries in place at all levels to enhance youth involvement and participation in politics.
He said he was in Benin City to solicit the support of the PDP Deputy Chairman for the Next Generation of young business leaders and politicians, and to show solidarity to him
According to the Speaker, the era of excluding the youth from the decision-making and political process is virtually coming to an end across the globe.
While commending the wind of political renaissance and resurgence blowing in the PDP across the Country, the Speaker stressed that more youth should be factored into the scheme of things of the party and indeed the nation at the moment to enable them to participate and make impacts in politics and governance, as well as help, address the problems rocking Nigeria
Chief Orbih in his comments pledged the commitment of the PDP to the promotion of youth in politics, and commended the Speaker for showing the way to other youth on the need for them to show more interest in politics and governance for better tomorrow.
The PDP National Vice Chairman used the medium to call on the Federal Government not to single out the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki for exposing the alleged printing of N60 billion by President Buhari’s administration to augment the March allocation to the three tiers of Government.
