President Buhari Promises To Appoint Youths As Ministers If Re-elected In The Forthcoming Election 3

President Muhammdu Buhari has promised to appoint Nigerian youths as ministers and heads of agencies in his cabinet if he is re-elected in the forthcoming election.

The Director of Youth Mobilization, the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Tony Nwoye, disclosed this at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, January 21, 2019.

Nwonye, a serving House of Representatives member and former APC governorship candidate in Anambra state, stated that the youths have assured President Buhari that they would mobilize over 20 million votes for the president’s reelection. He said:

“Since my recent appointed to head the Youth Mobilization Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, I had embarked on nationwide consultations with the national youth polity to reach and understand the disposition and aspirations of Nigerian youths and students towards Buhari-Osinbajo 2019.”

“During the over one week of non-stop nationwide consultations that l spearheaded, in the company of my able assistant and deputy directors, Comrade Sadiq Abubakar, the APC National Youth Leaders, Ismaeel Ahmed and Jasper Azulatam, I became convinced that while Nigerian youths deeply appreciate the improved regime of youth development and empowerment under President Buhari, from 2015 till date, the polity is ready for Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 if and only if the prestigious good leadership team is ready to take its youth developmental programme to the ’Next Level’ of higher youth inclusion in leadership and the economy.

“Upon this all-important realization, I and my assistant and deputies quickly came back to Abuja to consult with Mr. President. This round of consultations happened intensively over a period of two days in which myself, my assistant and deputies were able to extract strong commitments from Mr. President on his readiness to take his youth development programmes to the ’Next Level’ of higher youth inclusion in leadership and the economy through the following:

“A youth quota in the headship of ministries, departments and agencies that is above the quota of men, women and politicians. The activation of a policy targeted at Nigeria being the largest high-quality factory of the world by 2030 leading to fully legislated and well-funded youth-based programmes in entrepreneurship and industrialization. The activation of another policy targeted at Nigeria being the African global hub of ICT leading to fully legislated and well-funded youth-based programmes in ICT software and hardware development.

“After extracting these commitments from Mr. President, the Directorate quickly reverted back to the leadership of Nigerian youths and had regional consultations and engagements. Thereupon, the youths and students of Nigeria and the Directorate agreed that Nigerian youths will deliver an Avalanche of over 20 Million Votes to Buhari-Osinbajo 2019.

“I am today very pleased to inform you that based on the decision of Nigerian youths to deliver 20 million votes to Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 in February, the Youth Mobilization Directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council is kick-starting a nationwide youth mobilization campaign starting today.

“It will interest you to know that this nationwide youth mobilization campaign is targeted at convincing Nigerian youths and students that they can trust Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 based on the positive youth development credentials of Buhari-Osinbajo from 2015 till date. The solid commitments of Mr. President to take youth development to the ‘Next Level’ if voted to continue power come 16th February 2019.

“The positive infrastructural record of Buhari-Osinbajo from 2015 till date; such as: the reawakening of Nigeria’s national Railway Network; the visible upgrade of Nigerian Airports; and the revamping of the National Roads and Highways Network.

“The record of visible and impactful Poverty Alleviation Strategies , such as: (i) the Traders’ Money Scheme which has empowered over 350,000 MSMEs across the nation; (ii) the National School Feeding Programme; the Anchor Borrowers Programme which has added over three million metric tonnes to our annual food supply having, so far, created over 500,000 jobs for Nigeria youths.

“The N-Power Volunteers Scheme which has recruited 500,000 graduates; the N-Power Volunteer Corps which has trained over 200,000 youths; the N-Buiid Category which has so far trained over 10,000 non-graduates in vocational skills in 23 states of the Federation; the Special Training Programme of NITDA that has trained several hundreds of young Nigerians with disabilities on ICT skills,” he said.

He charged Nigerian youths to “go to nooks and crannies” of the country to campaign for President Buhari.
