IJEBU-ODE – A popular gubernatorial aspirant in Ogun State, Otunba Rotimi Paseda, has advised youths to be more active in party politics to enable them take up leadership positions.
Speaking at a programme to commemorate this year’s International Youth Day with the theme: “The Youths as catalysts for political reform” held at Rolak Hotel and Suite, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State on Saturday, Paseda said greater participation of youths in politics would strengthen the nation’s democracy and accelerate development.
“Once young people get more active in party politics, we will begin to have more quality, energetic and vibrant people involved in governance and development of the country,’’ he said.
The 2015 governorship candidate, Unity Party of Nigeria, UPN, in Ogun State commended initiators of Not-Too-Young-To-Run Act, National Assembly and President Muhammadu Buhari for assenting it.
He urged all youths above 18 years to register and collect their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) in order to replicate the meaning of the Not Too Young To Run Act.
