The brand new National Youth Leader of All Progressives Congress, Dayo Israel in Abuja on Monday called for a price splash for youths that will be contesting under the All Progressives Congress (APC) since the same has been done for women and people with disabilities.

Ahead of the 2023 electioneering activities , the 36-year-old youth leader, Dayo Isreal who emerged from the just-concluded national convention opined that a price slash in forms would embolden many capable youths to throw in their lots for national and sub-national offices.

Israel made this known during a press conference Monday at the APC National Secretariat saying that the party can afford to reduce nomination form fees by 35 or 4 per cent since women currently pay 50 per cent less.

“You will agree with me that upon our shoulders, we are coming together to ensure that we have one voice. I represent the face of over 10,000 youth leaders. With that strong force that we have, the collective voice that we have, we can work together and I will go into such rooms like the National Working Committee meeting to make a case on behalf of that strong body of the youths across the nation to ensure that our young people get preference”, Dayo said.

“If you are giving women 50 per cent, you should be able to give young people under the age of 35 at least if not 40, the consensus to be able to pay a discounted fee.”

Israel emerged youth leader of the governing party after other aspirants such as Dada Olusegun and the daughter of the winner of the June 12 presidential elections, Moshood Abiola, Rinsola Abiola, withdrew from the race.
