The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will do everything within its power to ensure President Muhammadu Buhari appoints youths into his government.
The acting national publicity secretary of APC, Timi Frank, on Thursday stated this, while reacting to the criticism of Buhari over the lack of youths in his government.
“As one of the national officers of APC, I think this is one strong massage that some of us will take back to the party.”
“I still believe that the government of today will still correct maybe the wrongs in the previous appointments they’ve done.”
“This is an assurance and I can tell you clearly because this is something we are going to push for. I’m a young man and by the grace of God, I’m one of the young leaders of the party. It is our responsibility to make sure that the party gets it right.
“We must direct the President to make sure that young people are taken along and if we don’t, that means we’ve gotten it wrong. But I know our own government will do better in terms of taking the youths along than the past government. I can assure that President Buhari will do whatever that is necessary for the Nigerian youths.”
