Youths in Central Nigeria’s Plateau State will soon launch a local political movement; “Vision Plateau 23,” a move that would see more youths in active politics.
The platform will encourage youths to be politically organized “to determine the Plateau of their dreams,” said its founder, Dr. Chomo Datiyi, and Dr. Yakubu Shendam, the Chairman, Governing Board of the Nigerian Youth Congress.
The platform will also challenge politicians to be “accountable, patriotic, altruistic and reliable,” said a joint press statement.
“It was conceived by few Plateau youths who after engaging in a lengthy political discussion, to use their energy and resources to galvanize support for those they trust” during elections.
“Vision Plateau 23 seeks to address the issues of quality representation and leadership in the State and will seek credible leaders that have shown capability and are willing to represent us come 2023,” said the Officials.
The platform will “support, shapen, and mentor those who would represent youth’s interest in politics, said the statement.
It will, said the Officials, offer opportunity to “brainstorm, deliberate, and bring out ideas in a mature way for the actualization of the set objectives”.
