APC pegs 35-year age limit for youth leaders


THE Caretaker/Extraordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress, has pegged the age limit of aspirants for the position of youth leader at levels of the party structure at 35 years.

This, the Punch learnt, was sequel to the adoption of a recommendation of the National Progressive Youth Conference, held in Abuja, in June this year.

A member of the Lobby Committee and Niger State Commissioner for Local Government, Community Development and Chieftaincy Affairs, Emmanuel Umar disclosed this during the Campus Conversation on Youth Participation organized by Yiaga Africa, at the Federal University of Technology Minna, on Tuesday.

He said, “Since a young person is within the age of 18 to 35, why are we having people over 35 as the youth leaders? Because we want that inclusiveness, we want participation and involvement from the youths.

“The youths during the conference recommended this to the caretaker committee and the Caretaker Committee has approved it.”

He said that the results of the recent ward and local government APC congresses have shown that the recommendation has since taken effect. (Punch)
