A staunch member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adamu Garba, says the sweeping wave of political consciousness among youths across Africa should be a telltale for the ruling party in Nigeria.
This is as he warned the ruling party not to underestimate the supporters of presidential candidate of the Labour Party Peter Obi, popularly known as the Obidient.
In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, Garba said victories by underdogs in recently held presidential elections in some Africa countries were heralded by youths’ participation in the electoral process.
He noted that such feat could be replicated in Nigeria by the obidient movement if care is not taken.
Relating to the recent experience in Lesotho, in which a party, RFP, founded in March 2022, won the Presidency due to young people’s votes, Garba said they should not be taken for granted.
He, however, advised APC to have a current strategic campaign if they are to secure victory.
He wrote: “A party, RFP, founded by Sam in March 2022 in Lesotho, won the Presidency as a result of young people’s votes. A similar case happened in Kenya & Zambia, all in 2022.
“That is why we shouldn’t underestimate these obidients APC must have a modern strategic campaign to secure victory”.
