The Ogun State Commissioner for Local government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon Afolabi Afuwape has commended the Ogun State Coordinate of the All Progressives Congress Youth League for its progressive initiatives and ability to draw more members into the party.
The commissioner said this words of encouragement while receiving the Liason Committee of the League in his office.
Hon Afuwape who as obviously elated to receive the young party men stressed the need for the youths in every political system to be determined to be the change they wished to see in the Society.
” You all tried during the last election. I must commend you. But we still need to build on that success for greater successes to come the way of our party”
“I must also give it to you because your group is made up of experienced and quality people. I can see two former S.U.G presidents in this visitation team, you have ACOMORAN PRO, AMORAN Exco, OSAMCA member etc, so you have eminent youths. Just build on that strength” He concluded.
The Commissioner maintained that the APC needed more youths in its mobilisation efforts, advising that the Youth League should make itself as a formidable force to reckon with, in the political space of Ogun State.
Earlier in an Address, Coordinator of the League, Comrade Olamide Lawal called for inclusion of more youths in governance of the state.
“We want government to consider our youths in more political appointments especially at the local government level, we want Empowerment opportunities, we want jobs…”
“We believe with someone like you in this government, many of our requests would be catered for” Lawal said
The Coordinator pointed out that with the tentacles of the APC Youth league in all the nooks and crannies of the state, victory was sure for the party in forthcoming elections.
