A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State, Hon. Bolarinwa Adekunbi has urged Nigerian youths to develop more interest in politics, if they ever wish to effect any desired change in the leadership of the country.
Adekunbi who is aspiring to represent Remo Federal constituency at the House of Representatives come 2023, noted that Nigerian youths must set their priority right and take more than passing interest in the country’s politics.
Adekunbi who gave the advice in a statement in Abeokuta on Thursday, called on the youths to come out in their large number and participate in the ongoing PDP E-Registration exercise.
He said, “This is a situation where the Nigerian youths with their huge population will fail to register for voters’ card while the few who registered will also choose to stay away on the election day leaving the business of the day for the elderly ones, after which they will then go and be complaining on social media would always shut them out of governance in the country.
“I hereby use this medium to call on the good people of Ogun State, especially youths to come out en masse to partake in the people’s Democratic party (PDP) E-Registration to team up with people of like-minds with the sole aim of working out a leadership that will address various challenges confronting the country.
“I also need to say that many of our youths must get their acts right, many are after quick money and so they are into cyber crime fraud, some are into cultism and other vices, the fact that you are a graduate does not mean that you can’t take up a vocational training, until we are useful to ourselves, we can’t say we want to serve the nation. We must spend our youthful day productively.
“As we know that no meaningful progress could be made in a chaotic environment, Nigerian youths must always shun violence and reject any offer from some selfish politicians to heat up the polity and thereby constituting clog in the wheel of progress of the country.”
