In the North-East APC likewise other zones of the country, the contest is hitting the political atmosphere and in most cases making the youths of Nigeria nurture interest in politics to decide their leaders.

By the Mai (Chief) Kanuribe of ABUJA.
That is good. Please can you tell us what prompted your desire to contest for the position of North East Zonal Youth leader in APC?
What prompted my desired aspiration in APC is that since opposition parties are giving opportunity for youth, ie a young man to be the National YOUTH Leader of Party to delegate youth and barely two years old than the party.
That’s why, I am contesting for Zonal Youth Leader Northeast APC and I believe with our competent management and leadership, I will ensure that the youths can begin to be carried along to improve the institutions and process of Democrat governance.
However, the youths have to commence to develop innovative ways and means to encourage youths in participation in politics and also guarantee the NIGERIAN YOUTHs from my zone full participation in governance. Thank you.
Who best can u bring the desired change in APC if elected as Zonal Youth leader North East?
To bring together my dear zonal youths of our country to be part of the major decision making, by fostering youth inclusiveness in governance and sustainability of our great party in the affairs of government. I will also ensure if elected, to stand for youth education matters and the creations of more jobs for youth.
Because education is the key to success,
Children are the younger generation and the hope of tomorrow. The YOUTHs are future leaders.
Then can you give a parting word of advice to NIGERIAN youths?
Thank you, my advice to Nigerian youth is for them to know that,
NO YOUTH NO NATION, YOUTH is the stage of hardworking and it is the stage of planning and it is the vision and mission.
That is why the youth of any nation is seen as the bone marrow of such a nation and the beacons of the future.
But unfortunately, youths invariably constitute the majority of the existing people at any given time in any given nation.
Finally, the hard truth is that the youth of the past are patient, contented and full of respect for the elders. They’re humble, obedient and always eager to learn as they queued up before the elders for the knowledge.
While the YOUTHs of today are very impatient and greedily ambitious. Please we have to correct ourselves and know our rights.
This is a wonderful time being with 9News Nigeria bureau Chief Princely Onyenwe from Owerri Imo state Nigeria. I’m humbled. Thank you.
