……. to rescue Nigeria
A governorship aspirant under the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti, Engr Kayode Ojo has charged Nigerian youths to get actively involved in politics to rescue the country from collapse.
Speaking on Thursday in Ado-Ekiti, Ojo said that beyond agitation, youths must rise to the challenges of nation-building and governance.
He added that the time has come for the younger generation to take vantage positions in leading political parties in the country, particularly the APC.
“Youth should take the gauntlet to vie for elective political offices in subsequent elections, especially in 2019,” he said.
According to Engr Ojo, if Nigeria’s political founding fathers assumed leadership positions in their 20s and 30s, the youths had no excuse to shy away from leadership positions.
He added that as a youth himself, he was ready and prepared to offer service to the nation.
“It is time for Nigerian youths to wake up from slumber and take up the gauntlet as the future belongs to them as leaders of tomorrow,” the governorship hopeful added.
He appealed to the youths to make use of the “not-too-young-to-run’’ slogan and venture into politics with the sole aim to serve and not to loot.
Ojo said that it is only APC that can return the state back to greatness and restore its lost glory caused by the misrule of PDP led government.
He, therefore, appealed to the youths to register in ongoing voter registration across the country to enable them exercise their civic responsibility in the 2019 general elections.
“Your PVC is your weapon to vote out inept and bad government out of office.
“I appeal to youths in the state to register and collect their PVC so that collectively, we shall decide our future in 2019,” Ojo said.
Ojo said he will formally declare his interest to contest the governorship ticket of the state on April 5, in Ado-Ekiti.
The aspirant added that he will unveil his blueprint and manifesto on how to turn the fortunes of the around at his declaration.
