President Bola Tinubu has called on the leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) to get more women and youths involved in the party’s affairs.
Tinubu spoke on Wednesday during the national caucus meeting of the party, which took place at the state house conference centre, Abuja.
The president noted that the future of the party belongs to Nigeria’s youths and women, considering their proven dedication and prowess in election matters.
He also charged the party to handle its finances better and embrace accountability in all forms in order to establish its stability as a governing party.
“As a party, we must handle our finances very well. I hope the financial audit recommended by the National Working Committee (NWC) will help us strengthen our finances better,” he said.
“I thank our governors who contributed generously to the wallet of the party. These times are tough. We are challenged. Please continue to support the party.
“Our party also needs to be more gender friendly, and we need more participation from the youths because they own our tomorrow.
“Let’s get more youths and women involved. They are very dedicated election masters.”
The Lagosian Magazine reported critics who claimed that the first batch of ministerial nominees appeared exclusionary to state, women and youths. With statutory balance in the second batch of the ministerial nominees sent to the Senate and President Tinubu’s recent admonition to embrace youths and women in appointment, the ruling party is going for equipoise.
