The presidential aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has promised to engage Nigerian youths in his government if elected in the 2019 election.
Atiku promised to give 40% of the slot in his government to youths and appoint a minister who is 30 years of age or below.
The PDP presidential aspirant made the pledge at a Town Hall meeting with youths yesterday in Lagos State.
“President Buhari has confessed that the economy is in bad shape under his watch and it is clear that the President is short of ideas about how to fix the broken economy. There is no single economist in his administration and that is why we are in this mess.
“I know how to fix a broken economy. I know how to create jobs and I also know how to empower the youth. That’s the reason I’m here today – to give hope to you the youth that together we can get Nigeria working again,” he said.
