Minister of Youth: APC youth-wing throw weight behind Seyi Tinubu

Youth of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC are divided regarding who should emerge as Nigeria’s Minister of Youth.

According to the report, a faction of the APC youth leaders have always expressed their support for Seyi Tinubu, son of President Bola Tinubu, for the position of Minister of Youth, and snubbed its National Youth Leader, Dayo Isreal.

In a letter dated 21st August, titled, “Clarion call for a purposeful minister of youth that is fit for the job,” the youth leaders of the party, from over 30 states, snubbed Israel to back Seyi.

According to the youth leaders, Seyi is deserves to be Nigeria’s Minister of Youth for “painstakingly strengthening the youth wing of the party.”

The youth leaders said that Seyi, during the elections, “travelled at odd hours to numerous states across federation canvasing support for the success of the Tinubu-led administration.”

The youth also argued that Seyi’s nomination will be favourable, because he understands the importance of a viable ministry of youths and will ease the agitations of the youth across the states of federation.

The youth leaders submitted their favourable candidate for the position days after Tinubu redeployed Abubakar Momoh from the Youth Ministry to the Ministry of Niger Delta Development.

The redeployment of Momoh came following outcry by Nigerians that he is not a youth.
