The APGA leading guber candidate later took the youthful group on an extensive discourse on the context of “youths in politics”
Soludo said there must be a rebirth of youth in politics which is what YESS seems to be propagating.
Soludo advised that the youths must retrace its steps from the dominant paradigm of ‘opportunism’ and embrace the concept of belief and purpose driven engagement
He commended the group for always ‘walking the talk,’ adding that YESS represent the youth rebirth of ‘stake-holding politics and ownership taking anchored on politics of idea and selflessness
