Abuja - All Progressives Congress (APC), on Wednesday in Abuja said it was ready to encourage youth's participation in its decision making process.
The party's Interim National Secretary, Tijani Tumsa said this at the party’s youth leaders' forum.
According to him, the party will encourage the Nigerian youths to develop their potential to the fullest.
He noted that the youths constitute 60 per cent to 70 per cent of the country's population adding that they were responsible for 70 per cent of total votes in any election.
The Interim National Secretary called on the youth to organise themselves and pursue definite agenda for the good of the polity.
“If you don’t have an agenda, you will not be relevant in the scheme of things, this means that youths must be organised.
“I am very glad that you are making the first step towards organising this community under APC ready to offer Nigerians alternative governance to what we are experiencing today,” he said.
He said he was optimistic that Nigeria would be better if everybody could truly contribute his quota.
He described the Nigerian youth leaders as intelligent, energetic and resourceful people capable of handling the affairs of the nation.
Earlier, the Interim National Youth Leader, Abubakar Suleja said that the purpose of the forum was to coordinate all youths for the robust activities of the party after the membership registration.
Suleja urged all Nigerian youths to be committed to the objectives of APC, which is geared towards uplifting the country.
