Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has advised Nigerian youths not to be deceived by the political elite in the All Progressives Congress, APC, who are busy spreading propaganda on the developmental strides of the party in Nigeria.
Chairman of the Arewa Social Media Forum, Malam Yusuf Dingyadi, stated this in Sokoto yesterday, at the closing ceremony of a two- day National Seminar, titled ‘Role of Social Media In Political Development and Challenges Ahead’ organised by the MacFarlane Funds for African Development in Nigeria.
Dingyadi, described APC as a party that was built on propaganda to hoodwink Nigerians and therefore cannot move the country forward.
According to him, only PDP can salvage Nigerians from poor leadership and deprivation being faced by the masses in the past two years.
He said, National Caretaker Committee of the PDP under Senator Ahmed Makarfi has shown to the world that, it is youth friendly by appointing and grooming many Nigerians Youths into various positions of opportunities to give their contributions to the nation political unity and development.
He expressed worry at the way and manner APC is bent on destroying the country through divide and rule and poor handling of issues that are fragile to the survival of Nigeria.
“It is disheartening that APC cannot deliver good governance, because majority of its leaders are more like political liabilities than assets to Nigeria.
“Nigerians in 2019 will surely beg PDP to come back and rescue the nation from such poor governance and mediocrity,” he said.
Dingyadi, who is the Secretary Caretaker Committee of the PDP in Kebbi state, charged Nigerians Youths to be wary of selfish politicians who are trying to use them as tools of destruction in order to achieve sinister motives through the Social Media and other platforms.
“Our youths have a great task of sustaining peace, unity and political development through social media forums in the country. They should not obey any political elite tha iis trying to mischievously exploit them to become a tool of destruction for their selfish goals.
” They should rather use the medium to inform and enlighten Nigerians on true happenings that will enhance unity and cohesion.”
He said, national Caretaker Committee of the PDP under Senator Ahmed Makarfi is much more youth friendly toward ensuring sustainability and political development in Nigeria than APC
He further said over 200 youths across the seven states in the North-west attended the ceremony in Sokoto.
Dingyadi added that Arewa Social Media Forum is a voluntary organization with over 2 million users on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that is monitoring the activities of the youths on social media in the North.
