Ambode Tasks Youth On Political Participation
Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State on Sunday said that the combination of the experience of political elders and the innovative ideas of youth was crucial to achieving good governance and sustainable development in the country.
Ambode said this at the second edition of Bola Tinubu Youth Summit in Lagos.
The governor represented by his Deputy, Dr Idiat Adebule, explained that the summit was to enlighten the public on the Nigerian political, social and economic systems.
According to him, it is part of the activities lined up for the 66th birthday celebration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader, Sen. Bola Tinubu.
Ambode said he would continue to run a government of inclusion with a level-playing ground for everyone to contribute to the growth and development of the state and the nation at large.
He stated that the summit was apt especially with the clamour for increased participation of youths in governance and the Not-Too-Young-To-Run Bill that was fast gaining ground at the National Assembly.
“I urge youths in the country to be steadfast and continue to demonstrate good character in their quest to make positive difference in governance.
“Show strong determination and draw inspirations from leaders who are selfless with positive ideas, policies and ideologies” he said.
