The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) House of Representatives candidate in Ibadan North Lanre Sarumi has said youths deserve better representation in the forthcoming political dispensation, saying this will contribute to the proposition of youth-centric laws and policies.
Sarumi, a youth-focused politician, said the inclusion of young Nigerians in governance will develop the nation.
Speaking in Ibadan, Sarumi expressed confidence in winning at the polls in February, adding that youths are more ready than before to take on the older generation.
According to him, the coming general election gives youths the opportunity to choose right.
“I am of the opinion that Nigerian youths deserve better. We need good representation at places that matter, where decisions are being made. This is one of the reasons I want to represent the Ibadan North Federal constituency,” he said.
The aspiring lawmaker pledged to bring home jobs, investments and empowerment programmes that will put Ibadan North on the global news and map if elected.
He said: “Youths are ready to take on the mantle of leadership. I implore youths not to make themselves available for the political class to use them in fomenting trouble during elections”.
The Ibadan-born consultant, while unveiling his plans to contest under the PDP, said, “I want to leverage on my vast knowledge to better my community.”
