The presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) Malik Ado-Ibrahim has declared that his party would not make use of the regular structure for the 2023 election.
He stated that things have always been done the same way by other political parties in Nigeria since 1999 but this time around, his party is ready to pioneer a change in 2023 that will shock the entire system.
Naija News reports he stated this on Monday during a guest appearance on Channels Television Politics Today.
Explaining further, Ado-Ibrahim said the YPP game plan is to communicate directly with young Nigerians who are over 100 million of the country’s population and convince them of the type of leader they need to vote into power.
He said, “I believe with what YPP wants to do, we want to take the message to the people. We want them to have dialogue with the leadership. That is the structure we want to build. It’s not the kind of a process you put up and said we here are going to win and that is it. We believe that we are going to shock the whole system in 2023.
“The things have never changed; everybody does the same thing since 1999 to date. We have the best and brightest coming forward and we intend to show that by communicating directly to the people, our structure is different. Our structure is the structure of the people, young Nigerians; more than a 100 million people that are ready to go and vote for a leader they can believe in.”
YPP Summons Presidential Candidate
Meanwhile, the Young Progressives Party (YPP), on Sunday summoned its presidential candidate, Malik Ado-Ibrahim over plans for the 2023 election.
According to the party, members are not satisfied with the preparations in place by the presidential candidate for the 2023 general elections.
A statement on Sunday by the YPP National Secretary, Egbeola Wale-Martins said the decision to summon Ado-Ibrahim was taken after the party’s 20th national working committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.
He added that the gap in communication between the presidential candidate, the party leadership and its organs seem to have slowed down preparations for next year’s elections and hampered the expected fortunes of the YPP.
The National Secretary also stated that the outcome of the briefing from the presidential candidate would determine the next line of action to be taken by the party.
