In a bid to mobilise support for its presidential candidate in the 2023 general elections, Hon. Dayo Israel, the National Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has inaugurated the Delta State chapter of Jagaban Foot Soldiers Movement, a special grassroots mobilisation unit of local canvassers and influential young members of the party commissioned to engage voters and secure their support for the party ahead of the general elections.
Israel, who continued his nationwide youth mobilisation tour with recent visits to the creeks and states in the south-south region, was in Delta State yesterday for the event which had in attendance local youth leaders of the party across the wards and Local Government Areas of the state as well as other stakeholders.
While delivering his address, Israel emphasised the importance of the forthcoming election to the future of Nigerians especially the youths.
Charging the members to do all they can to ensure victory for the presidential candidate Asiwaju BolaTinubu, stressing that the former Lagos State governor has demonstrated the capacity to harness talents and transform potential into development.
“As members of the Jagaban Foot Soldiers Movement, you have an important role to play in this election. Your efforts will make a difference for our party. You must, therefore, take this responsibility with great diligence and knock on doors, visit every village, and talk to every man and woman, to ensure that everyone commits to the victory of our party and the election of our leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu,” he said.
“Our goal is to secure the emergence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and DSP Ovie Omo-Agege as both President and Governor respectively so that Delta State can enjoy a progressive and growth-focused synergy that is obvious in other progressive-led states across the country,” Israel said.
Israel encouraged the members to utilize the tools they have been supplied, including a data-gathering record sheet, pledge cards, shirts, caps and other merchandize to collect important insights and implement other effective local mobilisation tactics that would deliver results on the election day.
He assured them of deserving reward upon victory, noting that the era of labouring for the party with nothing to show for it is now a thing of the past.
Earlier, in the company of other leaders of the party, the National Youth Leader joined the APC Governorship candidate in Delta State, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, in an interactive session with educators in the state where the candidate highlighted his plans to fix basic education in the state and ensure quality service delivery.
The national youth leader who was a member of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) before his elevation as the National Youth Leader also brought his experience to bear, noting the importance of a strong basic and secondary education to sustainable development, skills acquisition, and innovation.
