APC youths snub Dayo Israel, back Seyi Tinubu for minister



By Sola Omoniyi, Lagos

President Bola Tinubu has been urged to appoint his son, Seyi Tinubu as Minister of Youth.

The call was made by youth leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

They declared support for Seyi Tinubu, son of President Bola Tinubu, for the position of Minister of Youth, snubbing its National Youth Leader, Dayo Isreal.

In a letter dated 21st August, titled ‘Clarion call for a purposeful minister of youth that is fit for the job,’ the youth leaders of the party snubbed their national leader, and enlisted Seyi Tinubu for ‘painstakingly strengthening the youth wing of the party’.

Giving their reasons for their support, the youth leaders said that Seyi, during the elections, ‘travelled at odd hours to numerous states across federation canvasing support for the success of the Tinubu-led administration.’

They noted that the selection of Seyi will be favourable as he understands the importance of a viabe ministry of youths and will ease the agitations of the youth across the states of federation.

They sumbitted their favourable candidate for the position days after Tinubu redeployed Abubakar Momoh from the Youth Ministry to the Ministry of Niger Delta Development.

Momoh was redeployed following outcry by Nigerians who pointed out that he was not a youth.
