The coalition of the All Progressive Congress, APC, groups, Tuesday, threw their weight of support behind the aspiration of Hajia Kareemat Aderinsola Abiola Abiola for the Office of the National Youth leader of the party in the March 26 2022 National Convention.
Adeyefa Moses from Kwara State and a spokesman for the group while addressing the journalist in Abuja, said the endorsement of the daughter of the late winner of the annulled June 12 election, MKO Abiola ticks all boxes when it comes to experience, capacity, knowledge and loyalty to the ideologies of the party.
“Our choice of endorsement of Rinsola Abiola as the National Youth Leader of APC is borne out of her loyalty to the party and her antecedent in carrying out different party assignments diligently at various levels since the formation of the party in 2013. Between 2013 and now, Abiola has demonstrated commitment to the project APC at all levels. She has the quality and competence to lead the youth in our great party”
“In terms of capacity, competence and gender inclusiveness that we are all clamouring for, Hajia Abiola is the right choice. On behalf of the North Central youth wing of our dear party, we present to you Rinsola Abiola as our consensus candidate for the position of the APC National Youth Leader”.
Justifying reasons for rallying round the aspirant, Adeyefa Moses said Abiola is known across Nigeria and among the youths and party elders. “She is a loyal and a faithful party member. She has plan to organize and institute APC youth fora, seminars and workshops, where APC youth will be developed in their various careers and skills through the support of other party leadership and relevant stakeholders, the statement reads.
“This gender inclusive and youthful-driven endorsement of Abiola as the National Youth Leader amongst other activities within the party will further strengthen and deepen the inclusion of the North Central Youths in the programmes of the All Progressive Congress in the geopolitical zone and importantly across the country”.
“We are overwhelmed by the fierce support to Abiola whose entry into the race has virtually changed the dynamics of the contest judging by the huge confidence and backing which her candidacy has garnered across other geopolitical zones in the preliminary weeks of our youth-driven and inclusive campaign across the country” Moses said.
“At this juncture, kindly permit us to remind the entire Nigerian Youth who are yet to get their PVCs should do so at any of the INEC registration centres close to them. As this will encourage youth participation and inclusion in key decision making in the Democratic process of Nigeria”.
In the same vein, we commend the leadership of our great party under the leadership of Governor of Yobe State and the Chairman CCEPC, HE Mallam Mai Mala Buni for his role in uniting the party across various states of the Federation.
Finally we wish to appeal to the leader of our party and President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari, former Governor of Lagos State and National Leader of our party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, South-West Governors’ Forum and other APC South-West stakeholders to compliment our position by adopting Rinsola Abiola as the consensus candidate to be adopted and inaugurated as the National Youth Leader of our dear party in the forthcoming convention.
