Former governorship hopeful in Imo State, Hon Tony Nwulu, on Monday, received in audience the National Youth Leader Elect of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Hon Suileman Kandede Muhammad, at his Abuja residence.
Muhammad who stormed Nwulu’s residence with a large entourage, said he remains grateful to Hon Nwulu for sponsoring the Not Too Young To Run bill during his time at the House of Representatives, which he noted, gave him the opportunity to vie for the position of National Youth leader of Nigeria’s leading opposition party.
Recall that the Not Too Young To Run bill initiated by Hon Nwulu was signed into law by President Muhammadu Buhari, on May 31, 2018, to encourage active youths participation in Nigeria’s politics.
Muhammad said he is a beneficiary of the law having emerged the youngest member of the PDP National Working Committee, NWC , member of the Party’s National Caucus and National Executive Committee, NEC.
Muhammad in his speech solicited for Hon Nwulu’s support to enable him effectively galvanize and mobilize Nigerian youths to ensure victory for the PDP in the 2023 general elections.
Hon Nwulu, who represented Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency from 2015-2019, in his response pledged to support the programmes of the PDP National Youth Leader to ensure victory for the party, particularly in the forthcoming governorship election in Ekiti and Osun States.
He advised the National Youth leader elect of the opposition party to reach out to all Nigerian youths irrespective of political leanings and affiliation in the arduous task of rescuing Nigeria from insecurity and economic downturn the nation has been plunged into by the APC led administration.
The PDP National Youth Leader’s visit to Hon Nwulu, is part of his ongoing consultations with eminent Nigerians across the country after his election having met former military president, Gen Ibrahim Babangida (retd) and former Senate President, Bukola Saraki.
