The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) celebrates the resilience, courage,
industry and sense of unity among Nigerians youth, as the world marks
International Youth Day (IYD).
The party urges President Muhammadu Buhari to have more faith in
Nigerian youths and grant them space for leadership participation just
like the past PDP administration.
The PDP applauds Nigerian youth for their steadfastness towards the
development of our nation as well as their active participation in our
nation’s democratic process.
The party said the 2020 IYD theme: “Youth Engagement for Global Action”
aptly portrays a celebration of the resourcefulness, ingenuity and
creativity of the Nigerians youth as dynamic players in global
Our party had always believed in the ability, talent and capabilities of
the Nigerian youth with which they have excelled in various national and
international fields including politics and leadership; commerce and
industry, sports, science and technology, healthcare, aviation, banking,
media, entrepreneurship and wealth creation among others.
The PDP says the Nigerian youth has been resilient in personal and
national development despite the setback of anti-people and divisive
policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
The party stresses that Nigerians youth have proven to be one of the
most hardworking in the world contrary to being tagged “lazy” by the APC
administration, which has failed to articulate effective growth and
development policies for them in the last five years.
The PDP urges the Nigerian youth to remain united and steadfast to the
Nigerian project and not be deterred by the current setbacks being
witnessed under the APC administration.
