Youth under the auspices of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC have been divided over the race for the emergence of the Minister of Youth.
While a faction of the APC youth leaders declared their support for Seyi Tinubu, son of President Bola Tinubu, for the position of Minister of Youth, another bloc of the ruling party’s youth snubbed 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, from over 30 states, snubbed Israel to back Seyi.

According to the youth leaders, Seyi is deserves to be Nigeria’s Minister of Youth for “painstakingly strengthening the youth wing of the party.”
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 also claimed that the nomination of Seyi will be favourable, because he understands the importance of a viabe ministry of youths and will ease the agitations of the youth across the states of federation.
The youth leaders sumbitted their favourable candidate for the position days after Tinubu redeployed Abubakar Momoh from the Youth Ministry to the Ministry of Niger Delta Development.
Recall that Momoh was redeployed following outcry by Nigerians who pointed out that he is not a youth.
