“I believe in the youths, the capacity of the youths, the intellectual capacity of the youths, the PDP believe that it is only the youths that can sit to create wealth and millions of jobs, using new technology, that is the way to go.
“We rely on youths across this nation, that is why our policy as a party is that all the states controlled by the PDP must include youths in their structures and provide a platform for them to research and innovate.
“The social media bill before the national assembly must be killed, our leaders in NASS are here if they go ahead to tamper with what is already existing, it means that our youths cannot make progress like their counterparts in other countries including Kenya,” he said.
He However, urged Nigerian youths to be law-abiding.
