The All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Wing has invited presidential hopefuls on the party’s platform to a town-hall meeting.
According to a statement issued on Wednesday by Dayo Israel, APC National Youth Leader, the town-hall meeting will take place on May 27 and 28 with the presidential hopefuls expected to discuss their plans for youths.
The statement reads in part,“In a few days, our party delegates will gather in Abuja at the special convention/presidential primaries to elect the presidential candidate of our great party, the APC.
“While some of the aspirants have toured the country to address would-be delegates, we observe very little engagement with the youth wing of our party.
“It is our belief that as the highest voting block, with the advantage of our population and demography, it is expedient that we sit at the table with all APC Presidential aspirants and hear what they have for us as young progressives – if/when elected.
“In light of this, the office of the National Youth Leader will be convening a 2023 APC Presidential Aspirant Town Hall Meeting with Young progressives with the Theme: ‘What do you have for the youths’?.
“On behalf of the youths of our party, I am using this medium to invite all our presidential aspirants to kindly make themselves available for this special event. Participants will be able to register to attend on a first come first serve basis on –https://youngprogressives.ng/presidentialtownhall/ when the website goes live.”
The APC youth wing appointed Sanusi Ohiare, executive director of the Rural Electrification Fund, as co-chairman of the town-hall meeting.
On May 29, delegates from across the country will converge in Abuja for a special convention to elect a candidate to represent the APC in the 2023 presidential election.
