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.
