APC Youths Demand Inclusion in Reconciliation Efforts
The party had set up a National Working Committee (NWC), which the forum accused of excluding youths and women from.
The forum made this known in a statement sent to journalists on Tuesday, November 20 by one of the leaders of the group, Chucks Nwanodu.
It called on the NWC to include the names of young politicians in the committee before the inauguration, adding that they be carried along in the reconciliation activities as some young politicians in the party are also aggrieved.
He added that they were also not happy with the party, stressing that excluding them will worsen the situation.
He further urged the APC leaders to create the enabling environment for young people to aspire to the highest cadre of political leadership in the party.
“We received the news of reconciliation committee with a shock, that no single young man or woman is considered necessary. The national chairman of APC must learn how to recognize the influence of the youths and women wings of this party.
“How can he as the head of NWC of our party set up a 7-man reconciliation committee across the six geo-political zone without young ones inclusive? How can the young ones be model along with the party?
“So we in the APC Young Stakeholders demand that before the inauguration of this reconciliation committee, young ones should be inclusive to make it 8-man committee, so that the young ones can have a sense of belonging in the APC,” the statement read partly.
