President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerian youths abroad and at home to actively participate in the country’s political affairs.

This was revealed by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at Moshood Abiola National Stadium Abuja, yesterday.

According to the statement delivered by Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Buhari said: he has opened the door for youth involvement in political process and governance in the country by signing the bill of “Not too Young to Run” into law three years ago.

It read, “It is my belief that young Nigerians should organize, mobilize and participate fully in public affairs”

“All that is good and great about us as a people is inherent in our youths. I know of no other set of people as obsessed with constant self-improvement as young Nigerians.”

“At home and abroad, this drive to not just be better, but to be the best that they can be, inspires achievements that make us all very proud.” the statement reads in part.

Meanwhile, Buhari called for unity and constructive engagement on national issues while stating that diverse opinions in policy making are part of democracy and such should not cause political apathy among decision makers but should be settled amicably and legally
