APC Nat’l Youth Leader Describes Tinubu As Nigeria’s Best Chance For Sustainable Growth


The National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Dayo Israel, has described the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu as the best chance for sustainable growth.

Isreal said this at the Presidential Elections Youth Debate organised by Rubbin Minds, a youth-focused television programme.

During the debate which was aired on Sunday, Israel argued that Tinubu was ready to pilot the affairs of the country as the next president, noting his leadership experience.

Citing data and studies conducted by foreign bodies, he highlighted Tinubu’s contribution to the upgrade of public service in the country with his outstanding performance as governor and the introduction of novel ideas responsible for reforms and re-organization which made Lagos one of the most preferred destinations for investments in Africa.

” Tinubu’s vision, which was laid out in a masterplan that has guided leadership in Lagos since 1999, stands him out from the crowd and explains his continued relevance, nationally and internationally, years after leaving public office”, said Isreal.

He faulted Atiku’s lack of executive leadership experience and Obi’s inability to speak to his records as governor of Anambra.

Israel said ” The Feb 25 contest is about who Nigerians can trust to midwife the country’s complete renewal and restoration at a time of great upheaval caused by a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, climate change, and war in Europe. Only Tinubu boasts of a record of delivery and performance in a similar situation. His well-documented transformation of Lagos from a dysfunctional den of crime to a modern mega-city”.

He explained the manifesto of Tinubu, adding ” He will raise standards in the education sector and guarantee equitable access by providing loans to underprivileged citizens who require a university education to attain social mobility and contribute to the country’s progress”.

Israel argued that Tinubu has demonstrated his commitment to inter-generational collaboration, adding ” This is evidenced by his inclusive style of leadership as the governor of Lagos state during which he entrusted leadership opportunities to a talented pool of young Nigerians sourced from different parts of the country, some of whom continue to loom large as positive models across different fields”.

He pointed out that the APC Youth Wing has a membership strength that exceeds 30 million and its campaign efforts have attracted an even larger base of young Nigerians who are ready to vote for the party on Election Day.

Israel also noted the party’s contribution to youth inclusion in politics and governance.
