Ahead of the 2019 general elections, a non –governmental organization, Aspire African Youth Empowerment Initiative (AAYE) has urged youths to form political alliance in order to help them attain elective positions
The Founder/President of the group, Emmanuel Ekpo made the call in Abuja during the first National Conference On Youth Involvement in Governance to commemorate the 2018 International Youth Day.
He said: “youth needs to get involved in all aspects. They can create a platform or come in form of coalition to form a political alliance. By doing that, it will be easy for them to metamorphose into elective positions.
Speaking on the theme: “The Nigeria We Want,” Ekpo further called charged youths to know the the truth, adding that leadership is for the youth who have fresh ideas. “We are not only .looking at the leaders that will be giving excuse for the failures of the past administration but leaders who can fix and move Nigeria forward.
One of the guest speakers at the event, a researcher and strategist, u i Dangille La Dunason said youths should be conscious of subscribing to political parties that do not have a national ideology.
