Ahead of 2019 general election,
the national leadership of the
Peoples Democratic Party, PDP,
yesterday in Abuja has tasked all
the youths organizations operating
under the party to use the social
media to conscientize Nigerians
about the failures of the ruling All
Progressives Congress, APC.
Addressing a meeting of PDP
youths’ organization at the party’s
national secretariat, the PDP Deputy
National Chairman (South), Mr.
Yemi Akinwumi, said the outcome
of the next general election will
be largely determined by the
participation of youths and women.
He declared that the APC
administration has failed Nigerians
in all sectors and the voters must
the sensitized on the dangers of reelecting
the party in 2019.
“It is the age of 18 to 40 that are
very active electorally. We have all
learned our lessons the hard way. We must do everything to return the
PDP to power.
“Our journey to power is what we
have started today, the initiatives
that our National Youth Leader has
put together.
“Take charge of the internet.
Control the internet. Let threequarter
of what we are going to read
there be against the APC. Expose
their faults and mistakes, the killing
of farmers in Benue, the fuel scarcity
that is affecting all of us, the APC
convention that did not hold till
“Talk about the fall of the naira,
unemployment everywhere. Fashola
who said a serious government will
fix power in six months, almost
three years now, they have not done
anything. Things are getting worse
everyday. They are using anti- graft
agencies to chase the opposition
“When it is a matter involving their
members, they set up administrative
panel of inquiry. If it is the PDP,
they use the EFCC and the ICPC.
Their anti-corruption crusade
is selective. Let us be reading all
these in the internet.
“They only grabbed power but
they did not plan for governance
at all.”
The PDP Deputy National
Chairman added that the failure
of APC has made PDP campaign
for 2019 easier.
“Our campaign is very little
if we can manage our youths
very well. Even in the remotest
part of the country, you must
get something to read. Let us
dominate the internet and the
airwaves to expose them. They
don’t have anything upstairs.
“There are two principal officers
that are very important to us: The
National Youth Leader and the
National Women Leader. If these
two departments can handle their
assignments very well, like I am
seeing here today, we should go
and sleep.”
