Explaining the need for a National Youth Lobby Group, Alhaji Ahmed noted that, the Party has identified youths as a formidable force that would play a major role in determining the victory of the Party during the general elections in 2023. He stressed that the APC has to reinvent and define itself with its own character without the President Muhammadu Buhari's enigmatic presence. The Party has to work with the young people because they will determine the elections in 2023 whether we like it or not.
