Convention : We Are On Our Own – Garuba Tells Youths, Blasts APC Elders After Release Of South-South Unity List



Former presidential aspirant and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garuba has expressed his disappointment over a unity list allegedly approved by his party for members vying for national offices from South-South.

Garuba, a Youth4Youth crusader who is eyeing the office of the president to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 in his reaction on Friday maintained that the purported unity list indicated that the APC youths are on their own.

According to Garuba “our elders don’t care about pedigree or political party, all they sought for is the raw political power, however it must.Yet we caged ourselves into blind loyalties and ended up getting ostracized by the system.

“Nearly all members of the CPC and ANPP that joined the coalition in the formation of the APC, the core of the opposition are disappearing. The ACN block? A big question mark. What about APGA, do they still exist in the coalition? Much need to be seen.

He also noted that what PDP has lost through direct confrontation to APC is won through inter-party political play, a tacit, latent internal assimilative war which may clearly be won, if care is not taken, adding that this will go alongside the legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari, it may be absorbed too and put to extinction.

While calling on the Youth4Youth Movement, Garuba said ‘We should be there for our fellow youth, stand by our fellow youth and support our fellow youth. No matter where they come from, which party they belongs to, which religion they practice or which language they speak. For this 2023, It should be all about the Youth4Youth.

“No matter what we think of our elders, they’ll never give way until we push them and create our way, politically. We must cave our niche as they did theirs years ago and build our future and experiences, as they did theirs. They may talk about experiences. How did they get theirs? They started from nothing too. We should be allowed to build ours. It is a Youth4Youth Agenda.

“In our party, the APC, we have Etsu for National Chairmanship of APC, we have Ismaeel Ahmed for National Organizing Secretary, we have Hon. Sadiq Fakai for National Organizing Secretary too, we have Hon. Bashir Gumel for National Financial Secretary, Mr. Bolaji Repete for Vice Chairman South West Zone and so many others, they Youth must endeavor to stand behind them during the upcoming national convention, uncompromisingly.
