This was disclosed in the party’s first quarter (2021) accountability report tagged ‘Leading by vision, strategy and transparency’ presented by the Director of Communications and Programmes, Barrister Ifenla Oligbinde at its headquarters in Abuja.
According to the party, the President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress, APC government should fulfill its 2015 campaign promises to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians, adding that the resurgence of the Nigeria youth to say ‘enough is enough’ is remarkable.
“They demonstrated this recently in the #EndSARS and some made the ultimate sacrifice both last year on the 20th of October and early this year.
“ADC will honour those martyrs by driving this needed transportation to a conclusive end.
“ADC recognizes that the youths are poised for leadership, they have the biggest stakes in the country. The ADC Director of Communications and programs, Barr. Ifenla Oligbinde’s tenacity, focus, depth and leadership say it all.”
The party said its National Youth Council was up and running to make sure that 35 percent youths get elected to lead in the political space moving forward.
It said, “Over the years, the party has worked tirelessly to build a lasting structure through its DNA that advocates transparency, accountability and responsibility in leadership as well as implement the 35+35 ADC Strategy for a strong and sustainable polity.
“This strategic framework is to further our commitment to youth and women inclusion as well as persons with disabilities in the politics and government of Nigeria at all levels.”
