A 23-year-old youth activist, Abdullahi Sidi Ali, has declared his intention to run for the position of All Progressives Congress, APC National Youth Leader in its upcoming National Convention.

Mr Ali, a final year student of History at Yusuf Maitama Sule University, YUMSUK, told DAILY NIGERIAN that the signing of the Not Too Young To Run bill by Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari into law inspired his ambition.

The Kano-born politician assured that if elected, he would use the privileges of his office to ensure youth inclusiveness and participation in politics, which will in turn drive youth friendly reforms.

“This is not my contest alone. Its for the youths and I call on them to rally round and elect me as National Youths Leader of our great party the APC. Democratically youths are indispensable for prosperous development and the time is rife for us to take charge of running the affairs of governance,” Mr Ali said.

“Youths have been identified as major stakeholders in the journey to national development in any developing nation.

“Nigeria, Africa’s largest and most populous nation, has a greater percentage of voting population in this category, however they do not get to participate in the electioneering that leads to the selection of those who lead them.

We are ready to prepare the youth for a seamless transition to political participation and leadership from our founding fathers. We will set the pace for youth inclusion in all levels of government and rejuvenate the spirit of leadership and selfless service to our nation in our youth.”
