Sowore asks youths to lead campaign on restructuring
•Abiola’s daughter lauds Buhari’s signing of ‘Not Too Young To Run’ bill
A presidential aspirant in the 2019 elections, Omoyele Sowore, has asked the youths to lead campaign for the country’s restructuring.
He cautioned against leaving the responsibility for the old politicians who have tasted power without any positive impact.
Sowore, who spoke at a town hall meeting in Abeokuta, lamented the exclusion of youths from major decisions on the political and
social-economic development of the country.
He said: “We want to restructure Nigeria by decentralising power, but we want it to be done by the youths. We are the ones whose future is at stake.”
“The last time they held a meeting to discuss our future, we the youths, were not there. They only appointed a few people from amidst, who the elders did not give the room to speak out.”
Also, the daughter of the late M.K.O Abiola, Aderinsola, yesterday hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for signing into law, the “Not Too Young to Run” bill.
She spoke to journalists in Abeokuta, and challenged youths to take advantage of the new law to play active politics.
Aderinsola, a member of the forthcoming All Progressives Congress (APC)’s National Convention Committee, urged women not to relax in their efforts to play active politics.
Abiola, who is also a Special Assistant to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, charged the youths not to become speculators, but play active politics.
