Atiku Abubakar, former Vice-President, has pledged to give 40 percent of appointments in his cabinet to the youth if he wins the 2019 presidential election.

He made the pledge on Sunday at the inauguration of the national and state executives of a pro-Atiku group, Intellectual Think-Tank for Atiku (ITTA).

Atiku, who was represented by Oladimeji Fabiyi, chairman of All Atiku Support Group (AASUG), said the 40 percent representation is because of the “critical role” the youth play in elections.

“Having identified the critical role of youths in the emergence of any leader, I pledge to give youths 40 percent of appointments in my cabinet if elected as the president of Nigeria in 2019,” he said.

“As a youth-friendly leader who thinks and understands the feelings of youth, I urge them to give me the chance to make their dreams possible.”

Speaking in his own capacity, Fabiyi said Atiku had consistently shown care and concern about the plight of the youth in the country.

He said the former vice-president was one of the major jobs creators in the country and that the youth were the major beneficiaries.

Also speaking, Titi, wife of the former vice-president, said her husband deserves to secure the People Democratic Party(PDP) ticket in the 2019 presidential election.

Represented by Grace Bent, a senator, she said Atiku is the right man with the political stamina to wrestle and return power back to PDP and Nigerians.
