The All Progressives Congress, APC’s, National Youth Leader, Hon. Dayo Israel, has paid visits to Taraba, Benue, and Niger states to complete the North Central leg of his nationwide youth mobilization tour.
The National Youth Leader, in a statement made available to Oyo News rallied support for the party and charged local stakeholders to mobilize votes for its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and other candidates flying the party’s flag at the polls.
The conclusive lap for north central began last week with a several hours drive to Taraba State from Gombe where, Dayo Israel with the youth and party excos engaged youths in the State.
Hon. Dayo Israel also inaugurated the states’ division of the Jagaban Footsoldiers Movement alongside its various directorates.
Recall that he performed a formal inauguration of the APC National Youth Wing Campaign Council in Kaduna State.
Israel encouraged members of the movement, particularly those in directorates overseeing grassroots mobilization and media engagements, to effectively communicate the party’s goodwill and readiness to confront peculiar challenges affecting growth and development in the state.
He also tasked them to make good use of tools provided to them such as the Canvasser’s Record Sheet to enable the Youth Wing run a data-driven campaign, especially with last-mile, get-out-the-votes efforts it plans to deploy to ensure that the party harvests the largest number of youth votes in the election.
In Taraba State, the National Youth Leader teamed up with Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia, the party’s governorship candidate in the state, and other local youth leaders and representatives to mobilize locally for the party.
The National Youth Leader also played host to a town hall meeting with various interest and support groups during which he disclosed the plans of Bola Tinubu to bring an end to the perennial conflict and security challenges affecting peace and commerce in the state.
According to him, “Asiwaju has perfected plans to provide the required support to farmers in Benue State to cultivate, monitor, harvest and preserve their goods. He will also ensure the availability of ready markets and easy access to the markets through key infrastructural investments. This will enable farmers in Benue to sell their goods when due at a favourable profit margin.”
“Under Tinubu’s leadership, Benue will live up to its reputation as the food basket of the nation and provide relief to the rest of the country by increasing local food supply and bring down inflation,” he said.
As a mark of appreciation for his impactful visit, the people of Benue honoured him with a title as the ‘Kuhe Jime U Youths’ which translates to the backbone of the youths.
In Kogi and Niger states, the National Youth Leader urged youths to sustain and expedite the wheels of progress in the state by preserving its alliance with the centre with the election of the APC’s Bola Tinubu and Umar Bago as president and governor respectively.
Dayo Israel, the APC National Youth Leader had earlier visited Kwara, Nasarawa, and Plateau States.
