Address journalists in Abuja on Wednesday August 29, Itodo harped on the necessity of parties to include youth among their flagbearers. “As at today, INEC has conducted over 190 elections, post 2015, and those elections to a large extent have prepared Nigeria and Nigerian citizens for 2019 elections. There is so much happening.

As a movement, we are monitoring the situation. And, it is on the basis on that we are going to be speaking to the press and hoping, like you’ve always done, you will communicate our decisions our resolutions, as well as our plans to the Nigerian public. “But, most importantly, the stakeholders which we seek to engage. To build on what I have just said, it is important to also place on record that as a movement, about three weeks ago, we went to the streets, to engage with political parties. We merged the FCT and the 36 states of the federation, going from one party to the other, placing one demand. “And, that demand is that we are determined in our political life that political parties need to rise to the occasion to operationalize the Not-Too-Young-To-Run law as signed into law by the President.
