2019: Why we won’t supportBuhari – South West youths

Youths in the South West have accused President

Muhammadu Buhari of neglecting the Nigerian youths in

his administration and not paying attention to their


The Youths alleged that Buhari has failed the Nigerian

youths especially by not fulfilling his electoral promises

for them.

The National President of the Yoruba Youths Congress

(YYC) who doubles as the Chairman, Coalition of South

West Youths Group, Prince Dapo Adepoju lamented that

the President has pushed the Youths to the back seat.

Adepoju spoke to reporters in Akure, the Ondo State

capital on Wednesday, while receiving youth leaders of

tertiary institutions who came from Ghana on a courtesy

visit to the group.

He said Buhari has failed to extend hands of fellowship

and friendship to the Nigerian youths.

The group noted that the choice of the present Minister for

youth was a wrong one as he’s far above the stipulated

age to be addressed as youth.

“We contributed the largest votes, yet, we are the ones

that are jobless and taken for granted, We will not accept

this anymore, “He said.

Adepoju said lots of corrections can still be made to pacify

the youths by providing employment for youths who are

roaming around the streets.

He said youths stakeholders will consult and agree on a

particular presidential candidate to support in the 2019

general election.

Adepoju said the united efforts of the Youths was the

reason for the technical defeat of Nnamdi Kanu.

“We were united and we all agreed that we will not support

his sentimental agitation. Had it been we gave him

support, it would have been another story today.

“How many youths are in his cabinet, in fact the president

has not deemed it fit to appreciate efforts of youths

stakeholders in supporting him to kill the bad intentions of

Nnamdi Kanu.

“Instead, people who were not part of the struggle were

the ones being commended, In fact the vice President met

with them who were mostly elders, This to us is not good


Adepoju said the Nigerian youths have decided that only a

presidential candidate irrespective of his/her political

party that will give youths attention will get their support in
