National Youth leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Barrister Ismaeel Ahmed, has said his party will win the emerging 6.2 million new young voters in 2023 to retain power.
Ahmed said, statistics have shown that 6.2 million young Nigerians who have never voted would be attaining the voting age before the next election, a group which he said, the APC has already developed plans to win to its side to become victorious.
Addressing Kaduna progressive youth roundtable meeting of youth and women leaders in Kaduna on Saturday, he said the new young voters are present in the social media, hence the need for the APC youths across the country to take the campaign to them by showcasing the numerous achievements of the APC government.
Ahmed said as far APC is concerned, the struggle for the 2023 general elections has started with the revalidation and registration exercise of the party.
He therefore urged members of the ruling party to take advantage of the revalidation exercise by going back to their constituencies to win more members into the party and get more supporters.
The APC chieftain said, by 2023, President Muhammadu Buhari would no longer be contesting, it is therefore imperative for members of the party especially women and youths to work towards the success of the party.
Political Adviser to Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Ben Kure, said the ongoing revalidation and registration exercise of the APC, has shown that the party is very popular, saying that, it is presently oversubscribed.
He said, the leadership of the party was not surprised by the height APC has attained, because they rescued Nigeria from collapse in 2015 and took the country to a greater height.
