The All Progressives Congress Youth Forum while addressing a press conference yesterday in Abuja, told Nigeria’s new President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari to address the problem of unemployment and youth restiveness in the country.
The Chairman of the group, Ismaeel Ahmed congratulated Buhari on his victory at the polls, and said the youths should be remembered for their role in wanting change in the country.
He said: “Young Nigerians, the foot soldiers of the respective campaigns of which many lost their lives, went from door-to-door to spread and preach the benefits of our party roadmaps, and today, we must remember and honour them. Today, we must begin to look at the sustainability of our party and begin to empower young people for the sake of the future that knocks ever so steadily on our door.”
The youth forum added the young people should give the new government time to effect change in the system and want Nigerians to hold leaders accountable for their actions.
