Group Congratulate Abiola’s Daughter Over BoT Appointment, Laud APC
A Socio-cultural group, Odeda Parapo Youth Organization (OPYO) has congratulated the daughter of the late business mogul and grand-hero of Nigeria democracy, MKO Abiola, Mr. ‘Rinsola Abiola on her new appointment as a Member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Board of Trustees (BOT).
The group in a statement made available to Newsmen on Saturday in Lagos by its National Coordinator, Mr. Timothy Odedina described the appointment of Abiola as a victory of Nigeria youths over gerontocracy which the deposed People’s Democratic Party (PPD) represents.
The group advised Abiola not to derail and betray the confidence reposed on her by the ruling party, reminding her that this is a golden opportunity for her to re-enact the virtues which her late father, Moshood Kashimawo Abiola preached but could not implement.
“We commend the APC for appointing youths into its APEX decision making body. It shows the party mean well for the younger generation. The western nations are developed today because they had placed priority on youth development.
“Any nation that fail to empower her youths has no future. Therefore, we appreciate the APC for not just using the youths to agitate for a CHANGE OF BANTON, we salute the leadership of the ruling party for also incorporating the youths into the process of effecting the much anticipating CHANGE.
“We Urge Ms. ‘Rinsola to tow the pacts of honour, uphold the legacies of service to humanity and selflessness which her late father left behind. We have confidence in your capacity, and we wish you well in the service to the nation of Nigeria” the group stated.
Ms. Rinsola Abiola and two other youths were appointed on Friday by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the APC as a member of the ruling party’s BOT.
‘Rinsola is a renowned Social Media Expert, Public Relations Consultant and Youth and Gender development advocate.
