The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 2023 general elections for the Ibadan North-Federal constituency at the House of Representatives, Mr Lanre Sarumi, has advocated more inclusion of Nigerian youths in governance.

Speaking in Ibadan, the software technology consultant-tuned politician said young Nigerians deserve more than political appointments, as they are capable of being in power, especially at the parliament, to contribute to the proposition of youth-centric laws and policies.

“I am of the opinion that Nigerian Youths deserve better. We need good representation at places that matter, where decisions are being made. This is one of the reasons I want to represent Ibadan North federal constituency,” he said on Tuesday.

“Youths are ready to take on the mantle of leadership. I implore youths not to make themselves available for the political class to use them in fomenting trouble during elections,” Mr Sarumi said.

The youth-focused politician remarked that the inclusion of young Nigerians in governance would develop the nation, promising to bring home jobs, investments and empowerment programmes that will put Ibadan North on the global news and map through his connections.

Expressing confidence in winning at the polls next month, Mr Sarumi said youths were more ready than before to take on the older generation, noting that the exercise would provide an opportunity for Nigerian youths to choose right.

Unveiling his plans for the election, the Ibadan-born consultant, popularly called Skido, said, “I want to leverage my vast knowledge to better my community.”

Meanwhile, residents of Ibadan have commended Mr Sarumi’s show of love for his people, saying his intervention in the education sector through the purchase of JAMB and WAEC forms for students last year was timely.
