How to get our votes, Youth Leader advises Political Parties




A renowned youth leader and Secretary General of Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF, Hon. Nuhu Sani Lere has sent a strong signal to all political parties across Nigeria to elect youths into political offices or lose the votes coming from the northern part of the countr

Lere who is also the Magajin Gari Piriga, made this known yesterday at a One-day Roundtable with youths organisations from across Nigeria held in Abuja.


“We are in consultations and resolved unanimously to vote only parties that elect youths into offices” he declared. Further he said the youths are tired of the old politicians that have brought us to this ugly past.

He said the youths are shocked to see parties still fielding old aspirants as party chairmen where we have vibrant youths in the party. “How do you vote people of 70 years and above? Or is it those with EFCC cases, Boko Haram sponsors or anti-social media campaigner?” Nigeria he said, cannot move forward with this same old crooks with same songs.


“We need change, and the change begins now. Any party that failed to elect youths into leadership positions in the party faces the risk of loosing our votes” he concluded.
