SPEAKER, Oyo State House of Assembly, Adebo Ogundoyin has appealed to the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the country to give more opportunities for youths to participate in future political activities at the local, state and the national levels.
The speaker made the appeal in Benin City, Edo State when he led PDP Party Youths on a visit to the National Vice Chairman, South-South of the party, Chief Dan Orbih.
Ogundoyin said the PDP must put machineries in place at all levels to enhance youth involvement and participation in politics.
He stated that 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 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 Oyo State Speaker stressed that more youths should be factored into the scheme of things of the party and indeed in the nation at the moment to enable them participate and make impacts in politics and governance as well as help address the problems rocking Nigeria.
“The vibrancy of the youths makes them indispensable and relevant as such their inclusion in politics should be encouraged in line with the #NotTooYoungToRun policy of the federal government.”
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 youths on the need for them to show more interest in politics and governance for better tomorrow.
