The Yoruba Youths Coalition (YYC) has declared its support for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
The group urged youths in the nation’s six geo-political zones to vote for President Buhari and Osinbajo in next year’s presidential election.
It said the Buhari administration had used the last three and a half years to restore the country’s glory and laid a good foundation for its socio-economic development.
In a statement by its National President Olalekan Owolabi and National Secretary Boluwaji Ayeni, the coalition hailed the government for its fight against corruption and various intervention programmes for youths.
It said: “We examined the state of affairs of our nation in the last three and a half years under the leadership and administration of President Buhari.
“It is our observation that the anti-corruption drive of Mr President in all sectors of the economy has been unparalleled and unprecedented, which has made the various government corporations and agencies accountable in revenue generation.
“Mr President has, on several occasions, made it known that Nigerian youths and not oil are the assets of the nation.
“It is in view of the foregoing that the President initiated, among others, the social intervention programmes, which comprise the N-Power and numerous agricultural schemes designed to enable the Nigerian youths explore their potentials and become masters of their own businesses.
“Expectedly, millions of Nigerian youths have become beneficiaries of the several initiatives put up by the Federal Government.
“The Buhari administration has improved the security situation in the country and performed creditably well in upgrading and developing transport, power and health infrastructure.
“We cannot afford the Nigeria project and the march towards greatness to be truncated by those who possess no agenda other than enthroning greed and placing the wealth of our nation in the hands of a very few.”
