He listed a number of youths in Nigeria and overseas who have succeeded in leadership positions and also used their creative minds to come up with mind blowing inventions.
Read Secondus statement;
“This is a summit to build the capacity of the youths and prepare them for leadership.
“Youths everywhere are the catalysts for development and we want to prepare our youths through this summit to be able to withstand the challenges of leadership.
“We’re here (Awka) today and it is a starting point.
“We will move to other zones of the country and prepare our youths.
“We will use this (summit) to compare notes with our youths.
“It is not a rally, but a brainstorming session.
“APC has failed in leadership and also failed in giving the youths a space in their party.
“Nigeria is in a mess, but we urge you to be patient and law abiding and to think inwards and find what you can do for your country.
“PDP remains the hope of Nigeria and we are handing the party over to youths.”
