Governor of Zamafara State, Bello Matawalle has encouraged the youths of Nigeria to engage themselves more in politics and continue with the development of the nation.
According to him, having more youths in the affairs of the nation would save the nation from collapsing and also strengthen the ties it has with its young population.
He also added that if youths can desist from discouraging themselves when it comes to politics matter, they can rule the country from the federal level down to the local level.
The Governor made this statement while addressing the audience at the Arewa House, Kaduna, where he was inducted into the Sir Ahmadu Bello Sardauna Hall of Fame.
“I am a youth like you and it’s high time we participate more in politics. We have no reason to hide. This country is about to collapse and the only way forward is for us the youths to rescue this country,”
“There is a need for our youths to involve themselves more in politics. If we look at the population of this country, the youths are the majority. So, it is high time for more youths to come out and participate in governance so they can move the country forward.
“In Nigerian politics, once you call on youth to participate, the first question they will ask you is where will I get the money. But, they should put it in mind that they need to join a political party and be active from where they can move to occupy offices.”
“Like I always say, our challenge as youths sometimes is ourselves. Youths discouraging youths. If our youths can come together, with our number as voters, we can lead the country from the presidency down to the councillorship.”
“If our youths are actively involved in politics, they will become party executives and as such, they will be able to determine the cost of sale of forms at very affordable rates”.
