As the ‘Not Too Young To Run’ Bill awaits approval of President c, youths in Nigeria seemed to be strategizing to position themselves for political leadership and active participation in the upcoming elections in 2019 and beyond.

LEADERSHIP learnt that frantic moves were being made to ensure the newly register new Modern Democratic Party (MDP), led by 27-year old activist and entrepreneur, Prince Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi is embraced in all parts of the country.

The party represents the new face of active youth involvement in politics recently registered by Nigeria’s top electoral body, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the party intends to galvanise youths into engaging in policy formulation, government accountability and running for political office.

According to Bukunyi Olateru-Olagbegi, the party belongs solely to Nigerians who yearn to see a difference in politics and governance.

 He explained that the mission of the party is to be home for those who are weary of the status quo and want to be part of something fresh, new, untainted and different.

“We are focused on harnessing the mental and physical resources of this unique generation of youth brimming with fresh ideas and innovations which will finally put Nigeria in its rightful place on the world stage.

“We know that the journey ahead of us will be long. This is not a party registered for the 2019 presidential elections. We are here for the long haul and wish to call on all true patriots of our fatherland to get involved as we embark on this journey towards building Nigeria’s first and truly Modern Democratic Party,” he said.
