Lawmaker urges youths to participate in politics

A member representing Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency of Kaduna State in the House of Representatives, Gabriel Sale Zok has called on young people to take advantage of the ”Not To Young To Run Act” to contest for various positions during the 2023 elections.

Mr Zok made the call during an interview with newsmen.

The lawmaker said the current House of Representatives has more youths as members than previous ones, which, he claimed, made the 9th House more vibrant and people-oriented.

Mr Zok enjoined young people “never to be discouraged” by the issue of financial capacity, saying determination and commitment is all that is needed for them to achieve the goal in 2023.

The lawmaker urged state Governors across the country to emulate Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State by involving youths in governance.

He also called on politicians to always encourage youths around them to participate in politics rather than using them for their own selfish ends.
