2015:APC’s Success Depends On Nigerian Youths – Buhari

December 28, 2013

Former head of state and leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, has insisted that the success or otherwise of the party in the 2015 general elections would greatly depend on the support it gets from the country’s youths.

At the commissioning of an office owned by the APC Youths Vanguard in Katsina yesterday, Buhari said youths have a vital role to play in strengthening in Nigeria’s democratic process.

Represented by former petroleum minister, Umaru Dembo, Gen. Buhari said the time had come for the youths to elect honest and sincere people who would protect the interest of the masses, which the APC is out to achieve.

He said that it was through such an election that Nigeria could witness the kind of change that would lead to socio-economic development.

He said that what the APC elders were doing was to prepare the ground for the youths to build a better Nigeria.

“By the time the elders are no more the youths will continue to build on the foundation that was laid,” he said, and assured them that the APC would carry the youths along in all its actions.

He however called on youths not to allow themselves to be deceived by politicians who use money to lure them into voting for them or encouraging them to engage in activities that do not promote democratic principles.

Buhari also called on youths to eschew violence especially in the name of elections, but to engage in activities that would lead to the strengthening of the country’s democratic process.     

The national president of APC Youth Vanguard Ibrahim Bello said the association was established to unite the youths who are future leaders.

The chairman of the association in the state Ibrahim Saulawa said the group would unite youths in the country to work at defeating the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the next general elections.
