Ahead of its national convention on February 26, youth members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) South-South zone have called for more unity and opportunities for youths to occupy prominent positions in the party.

Gabriel Iduseri, the South-South Youth Leader of the party, made the appeal at the Zonal Youth Leadership, Sensitisation and Capacity Building meeting for newly elected youth leaders.

Mr Iduseri also advocated more positions for the youths by the APC government at all levels.

He commended the Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) for its activities so far, which, he said, had led to the successful conduct of ward, local government and state congresses.

The youth leader said he hoped that the national convention, the climax of the CECPC’s transition activities, would be more successful.

“We, the youths of the APC in the South-South zone, are ready for the next level the party is going to. We have come together as one family and preaching unity and working together for the progress of the party and the country,” Mr Iduseri added. “We are also clamouring for inclusiveness in the party, inclusiveness in the governance of the country.”

He also noted that the journey of the APC in the last four years “has been a bit difficult with divergent interests, but here we are standing together again, ready to carry on and change the narratives of our zone.”

According to Mr Iduseri, the APC in the zone will be strong if its members stay united.

“My message to the leaders of APC in the South-South zone is that they need to be more united in their political approach. This is because a divided house cannot achieve anything meaningful, just as nothing good can come out of a war-torn zone,” he stressed.
