Part of the statement read:

“In a few days, our party delegates will gather in Abuja at the special convention/presidential primaries to elect the presidential candidate of our great party - the APC.
“While some of the aspirants have toured the country to address would-be delegates, we observe very little engagement with the youth wing of our party.
“It is our belief that as the highest voting block, with the advantage of our population and demography, it is expedient that we sit at the table with all APC presidential aspirants and hear what they have for us as young progressives - if/when elected.
