The All Progressives Congress Youth League has charged the 20 newly inaugurated council chairmen in the state to ensure youth representation in their government.
The group also urged the local council bosses to emulate Governor Dapo Abiodun’s style of leadership by making the youth constituency a topmost priority as they begin to form their cabinet.
A release jointly signed by the league’s coordinator, Comrade Olamide Lawal and Publicity Secretary, Adewale Adeleye, pointed out that the youths in the Gateway State are tools that could be used to fast-track the desired grassroots development due to their resilience and energy.
” Youths in Ogun State are very hardworking. Their firmness and strength cannot be underestimated, especially as exhibited in the last pre-election and electioneering exercise just concluded.
“We believe the youths deserve above 60per cent inclusion in the local government administration.
“There is no better time for youths to be compensated for their steadfastness than now. Their resourcefulness and dedication to the party is immeasurable.
“Many of them vied for councillorship and chairmanship seats but were denied by the party, yet remained and worked tirelessly for their co-aspirants. There is no better name to call this action than party man-ship.”
The league commended Abiodun for his “Building Our Future Together” ideology which was exemplified during his campaign tour of all local government areas in the state.
“Indeed, royalty and leadership flow in his blood. He has shown genuine leadership by example and had earned more honour for himself by personally visiting all local government areas, to see things by himself, feel people’s pulses and solicit further support in order to deliver democratic dividends appropriately,” it said.
