Tony Nwoye, director of youth mobilisation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council, says President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to give youth ministerial appointments.
Speaking with journalists on Monday in Abuja, Nwoye said the promise was extracted from Buhari after consultation with him.
The director, who is a serving house of representatives member, said it took him and his aides about two days to get the president committed to the promise.
“Since my recent appointment to head the youth mobilisation directorate of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, I have embarked on nationwide consultations with the national youth polity to reach and understand the disposition and aspirations of Nigerian youths and students towards Buhari-Osinbajo 2019,” the lawmaker said.
“During the over one week of non-stop nationwide consultations that l spearheaded, in the company of my able assistant and deputy directors, comrade Sadiq Abubakar, the APC National Youth Leaders, Ismaeel Ahmed and Jasper Azulatam, I became convinced that while Nigerian youths deeply appreciate the improved regime of youth development and empowerment under President Buhari, from 2015 till date, the polity is ready for Buhari-Osinbajo 2019 if and only if the prestigious good leadership team is ready to take its youth developmental programme to the ’Next Level’ of higher youth inclusion in leadership and the economy.
“Upon this all-important realisation, I and my assistant and deputies quickly came back to Abuja to consult with Mr. President.
“This round of consultations happened intensively over a period of two days in which myself, my assistant and deputies were able to extract strong commitments from Mr. President on his readiness to take his youth development programmes to the ’Next Level’.”
