Use your strength to occupy positions, youth told
@SimonEchewofun The Not Too Young To Run Movement, Katsina state chapter has urged its members and political aspirants to leverage on the strength of the Nigerian youth in seeking for public offices.
At a recent Youth Conference and Awards Presentation event in Katsina, the State Coordinator, Ismail Bello said the event tagged, “Setting the Youth Agenda For 2019 & Beyond” has a clear goal of identifying practicable action steps that will ensure that the passage of the #Nottoyoungtorun makes meaning for youth.
He said, the conference is organized to celebrate effective activism and underscore the inestimable value of citizens-State engagement in enhancing the quality of democratic politics in Nigeria.
“About 300 leaders from political, civil societies, academia, women, entrepreneurs, people with disability and media converged to shape an agenda for democracy, governance and political representation in the pre and post 2019 era.”
During his presentation, Comrade Bello amplified what Comrade Bankole Wellington (BankyW) noted recently on the challenges facing youth inclusiveness.
“They said we don’t have the money to run. We say our strength lies in our numbers. They said we don’t have the structure, we say we will attempt to build it. They said “what if you lose”? I say, what if we win?” was his remarks.
Bello who is Special Assistant to the state governor in Youth Development charged the young people to initiate yet another campaign towards attaining economic independence as tool for the realization it the Youth Agenda. #NotooYoungtomakemoney.
