President Muhammadu Buhari has told the All Progressives Congress (APC) Youth Lobby Committee that the leadership of the party would ensure full participation of young people at all levels.

President Buhari stated this Friday in Abuja whilst playing host to the APC National Youth Lobby Committee led by Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed, the National Youth Leader, saying the youth are not begging, but negotiating, staking a claim and seeking to add value, which is admirable.

The president assured the lobby group that he will also support the aspirations of credible and committed young people who are vying for positions in the upcoming APC convention.

According to President Buhari, it is also in their interest to ensure the longevity of the party by standardizing and institutionalizing the leadership recruitment system, noting that hardworking and exemplary individuals should be identified, encouraged and mentored as a deliberate policy of the progressives in ensuring that the party have a robust succession plan in place.

The President mandated his Chief of Staff and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) to ensure that all Ministers and heads of agencies include young people with the requisite skills and experience in all boards and committees of the Federal Government.

He further directed Chief of Staff, and the SGF to ensure monthly engagements with the APC Youth Lobby Group for better synergy and cross-fertilization of ideas and opportunities.
