As the umbrella body of all youth organizations, it is our duty to advocate for youth inclusion. It gladdens our heart that while the party may choose to do otherwise, it did not. More than expected, the party also went further to also consider gender equality. We want to state categorically that, this generation of youths will not be ungrateful”.

Like Oliver Twist, we would always ask for more. We want to state categorically that, the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Ikorodu West local branch has been a training ground for leaders of repute. It is only trite to let these individuals test their acquired knowledge and experience in governance. Therefore, in the coming days and as the political land scape of our LCDA continue to take a new shape of youth inclusion, we look forward to more youth appointments and engagements”.
