2019: PDP inaugurates committee for national youth conference

Ahead of the December national convention, the  Woman and Youth Affairs department of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has inaugurated a committee for the conduct of National Youth Conference towards the mobilization of youths in the country.

Welcoming the youths to the party headquarters Wednesday in Abuja, Director of Women and Youth Affairs, Hajiya Hadiza Mohammed who represented the PDP Woman leader stated that it was high time more responsibilities was be given the youths.

Hajiya Mohammed expressed the confidence in the ability of the youth wing of the party to organise the national youth conference.

Also speaking, Head of Department, PDP Youth Affairs, Hon Sam Olowomeye  stated that he was overwhelmed by the turnout of the youth, adding that   the statement credited to the elders that youth is leader of tomorrow has become obsolete.

According to  Olowomeye, the youth have proved that they are capable of being leaders of today, noting that the youth can hold any position in the country

I am overwhelmed for one reason. You have proved that you are not leaders of tomorrow; you have demonstrated that you can hold any position in this country. You have also shown that you can hold anyone to ransom. This is what I have been fighting for. The elders can no longer select themselves and include only one youth,” he said

Chairman of the conference committee and also the zonal PDP Youth Leader (North Central) Ismail Arua noted that the large turnout are leaders of non Governmental Organisations within the party.

He pledged that they would not do anything that will tarnish the image of the party.

Arua stated that the youth conference would likely hold first or second week of November.
