The Ogun State Secretary, All Progressives Congress (APC), Engr. Ayo Olubori, has charged youths to take active roles in the political processes in the country.
He gave the charge, while speaking at a birthday celebration organised in his honour by some youths at the party’s Secretariat in Abeokuta, the state capital, on Friday.
Olubori took turn to appreciate the youths who worked round the clock to ensure the party secured victory at the last general election.
According to Olubori, he described the success of the APC at the last general elections as being a direct impact of a number of young persons who participated at different levels during the electioneering processes.
He specifically commended the Data Research and documentation of electoral management efforts of APC in the state as being responsible for the success due to the contribution of some youths whom he described as the “Engine Room” led by Dennis Ogunnaike who served as the Chief administrative officer for the party.
He, then, encouraged other youths within the state to identify their areas of gifting and competence and noted that everyone created by God is gifted in one way or another.
The party’s scribe urged the youths to get involved in active political participations to ensure the interests of the youths, who shared a larger portion of the state’s population, that are duly represented and protected.
Olubori, a former commissioner of agriculture in the state, said every society must look closely to youths development by harnessing their potentials for good governance and nation’s building.
“As we are getting older and about leaving the political scene, it is the youths that owns tomorrow and they must start at this moment to show interests in active participation in the political processes.”
He, therefore, called on the youths to show supportive hands and strengths to actualise the “building our future together” agenda of the current administration of the state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.
Besides, he further took the opportunity to congratulate the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, for the successes recorded in the legal battles brought against him by the opposition and commended him for remaining focused in the quest of taking Ogun State to greater heights.
