He explained that the inauguration of the forum was aimed at providing opportunity to reflect on the performance of President Goodluck Jonathan ahead of the general elections in 2015.

“As youths, we have come to the conclusion that our party has performed well and has kept the flag flying.”

“We will continue to keep faith and ensure we use our youthful disposition to play our part in peaceful endeavour,” Maibasira said.

He said it was pertinent to review the performance of the PDP- led Federal Government with regard to its the transformation agenda.

He pledged the group`s commitment to the policies of President Jonathan, adding that it was looking forward to the continuation of his administration in 2015.

Waziri maintained that the inauguration of the group would stimulate a new beginning for the teeming youths of PDP.
