2022 Int’l Youth Day: Group Urge Nigerian Youth To Vote For Atiku Abubakar

Young Democrats for Atiku’s 2023 Presidency

Every year the International Youth Day is observed on August 12 to bring youth issues to the attention of the international community and celebrate the potential of youth as partners in today’s global society.

The Day gives an opportunity to domesticate young people’s voices, actions and initiatives, as well as their meaningful, universal and equitable engagement.

International Youth Day on August 12 focuses on the difficulties that some young people are experiencing throughout the world. Most children are deprived of basic education and suffer from hunger and poverty which is a great hindrance towards their growth.

This Day was created by the United Nations to help draw awareness to these issues as global leaders’ find solutions. The Day calls everyone to join the efforts of the United Nations and help it achieve its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The theme for the 2022 International Youth Day is “Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages.” The idea behind picking this theme is to strengthen the message that action is needed across all generations to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and leave no one behind.

To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the world needs to leverage the full potential of all generations. Solidarity across generations is key for sustainable development. We must collaborate to foster successful and equitable intergenerational relations and partnerships to ensure “no one is left behind.” While intergenerational solidarity and concern for future generations is being called for in tackling global issues – with the UN Secretary-General recently putting forward new recommendations on renewed intergenerational solidarity, including in Our Common Agenda – many challenges remain.

In a Press Release to mark the 2022 International Youth Day, a group known as Young Democrats for Atiku’s 2023 Presidency through its National Coordinator, Comrade Richard  Onyebuwa stated that : “When young people are shut out of the decisions being made about their lives, or when older people are denied a chance to be heard, we all lose.”

The National Secretary, Young Democrats for Atiku’s 2023 Presidency, Arc. Barde Felix Uba, on his part stated that, “Solidarity and collaboration are more essential than ever, as our world faces a series of challenges that threaten our collective future.”

The group further urged the Nigerian youth to vote for His Excellency, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and His Excellency, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa as President and Vice President respectively in the 2023 presidential election under the People’s Democratic Party (PDP); to support gender equality, expand opportunities for young people to participate in civic and political life, as well as integrate youth into decision-making mechanisms at the local, national and international levels.
