Hon. Adekunbi, PDP aspirant for the 2023 House Of Representative, Remo Federal Constituency identified a situation whereby the Nigerian youth with their huge population will fail to register for voter’s card while the few who registered will also choose to stay away on the election day.
Adding that they would leave the business of the day for the elderly ones, after which they will then go and be complaining on social media would always shut them out of governance in the country.
He said: “I hereby use this medium to call on the good people of Ogun State especially youths to come out in masses to partake in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) E-Registration and to team up with people of like-minds with the sole aim of working out a leadership that will address various challenges confronting the country.
“I also need to say that many of our youths must get their acts right. Many are after quick money and so they are into cyber crime fraud, some are into cultism and other vices.
“The fact that you are a graduate does not mean that you can’t take up a vocational training. Until we are useful to ourselves, we can’t say we want to serve the nation. We must spend our youthful day productively.
“As we know that no meaningful progress could be made in a chaotic environment. Nigerian youths must always shun violence and reject any offer from some selfish politicians to heat up the polity and thereby constituting clog in the wheel of progress of the country.
“Come out in masses to join the ongoing PDP E-Registration in preparedness for 2023 General Election.”
