The All Progressive Congress (APC) Grassroots Youth for Change, on Wednesday, backed Rep Yusuf Yakub on his plan to vie for the position of speaker in the 9th House of Representatives.
Mr Henry Orlu, National Coordinator of the group made their position known when they paid Yakub a courtesy visit at his campaign secretariat in Abuja.
According to him, our group has come to join others to support Rep Yusuf Yakub’s ambition for speaker of the House of Representatives.
Orlu said having x-rayed the performance of the lawmaker in the last four years, the group said they were ready to stand by him being a loyal party member.
”Rep Yakub has always supported the APC at various levels, whenever he is called upon to do so,” he remarked.
Responding, Yakub, who represents Gombi/Hong Federal Constituency of Adamawa State, thanked the group for their support.
He said that his greatest assets as a politician were his ability to understand the needs of the electorate, an uncanny desire to meet those needs, spirit of team-play as well as a seamless ability to network among people without recourse to party, ethnic or religious affiliations.
According to him, the commitment to the people’s welfare and over-all development remain the reason for my involvement in politics.
He charged the youth leaders to see service in all they do.
