Buhari To Supports Youths at APC Convention

The president spoke on Friday in Abuja while playing host to the APC national youth lobby committee led by the national youth leader, Ismaeel Ahmed.

Accoding to him, the youths are not begging, but negotiating, staking a claim and seeking to add value, which is admirable.

Buhari told the APC youth lobby committee that the leadership of the party will ensure full participation of young people at all levels.

He said, “I will also support the aspirations of credible and committed young people who are vying for positions in the upcoming convention.

”It is also in our interest to ensure the longevity of our party by standardizing and institutionalizing the leadership recruitment system. Hard working and exemplary individuals should be identified and encouraged and mentored.

”It should be a deliberate policy of the progressives in ensuring that we have a robust succession plan in place.”

Buhari asked Ibrahim Gambari, chief of staff, and Boss Mustapha, secretary to the government of the federation (SGF), to ensure that all ministers and heads of agencies include young people with the requisite skills and experience in all boards and committees of the federal government.

The president asked the SGF to submit a report on the inclusion of young people on boards and committees that are yet to be constituted in March.

He directed his chief of staff and the SGF to ensure monthly engagements with the APC youth lobby group for better synergy.

He asked both senior government officials to explore the establishment of a committee of young people to form the monitoring and evaluation team of ongoing federal government projects across the country.

He said the committee would provide feedback which will enable his government to hold public office holders and those given responsibility to account.

The president also welcomed the idea of the establishment of a presidential committee on youth in liaison with the youth leader, directing the SGF and the chief of staff to work out the modalities for its operationalisation.

Expressing support for the establishment of the progressive institute for the party, the president said: ”The party must have an Institute where its ethos, character and mantra are inculcated in our members. I will rely on you to share the concept note for further action.”

The president, who endorsed the 2021 APC youth conference report presented to him, assured the group that the recommendations in the report that are within his own remit would be given favourable consideration.

Buhari also promised to encourage the leadership of the states and the party to implement the recommendations of the report for the benefit of young progressives.

KanyiDaily recalls that Buhari had recently declared that Nigeria’s survival and collective future depends on active participation on the active participation of its citizens in global developmental efforts, especially in science and technology.
