Association of Youth Arise, Osun State Chapter on Monday threw weight behind the deputy governorship candidate of Social Democratic Party, Hon. Yemi Lawa.

The youth in their great number thronged to the streets of Osogbo for solidarity walk in support of Social Democratic Party.

The Coordinator of Youth Arise, Mr. Dare Saheed after the solidarity walk which was terminated at the Party's Secretariat, Ogo Oluwa addressed newmen on the motive for supporting Hon. Yemi Lawal, said, "In recent times the youths of Osun State have watched on the sidelines and observed that the narratives and rhetoric of our political leaders have never been in favor of the youths of Osun State.


He stressed that, "We have also observed then vicious cycle that youths of Osun state have been subjected to as it relates to politics and governance. Our interest as youths in Osun state has always been subjected to mere rhetoric and little or no positive action to promote the youth aspirations of Osun youths in politics and governance.


We have, however resolved to change this trend. The youth population of Osun state accounts for more than 55% of the total population in the state. Our involvement and engagement in politics and governance has always been subjected to mere campaign promises and we make bold to say that this has to stop.


He noted that, "A ray of hope has however, shone on the youths of Osun in the candidacy of Senator Iyiola Omisore and Hon. Yemi Lawal. The decision to have a youth as a deputy governorship candidate came to Osun youths as a ray of hope and firm belief in the ideologies of a party like the Social Democratic Party, who are actually walking the talk. It is also a deliberate and firm resolve that youths will no longer be used be as tools in the hands of scrupulous politician and opportunists.


The youth of Osun were elated at the choice of Hon. Yemi Lawal's selection as the Deputy Governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party and resolved to throw their weight being the 36-years-old young man who is the beacon of hope for youths in the state and one who represents our interest as youths, our hope for a better today and tomorrow as well as gldreams of the future.



According to him, "We firmly believe that the choice to have Hon. Yemi Lawal as the running mate to Sen. Iyiola Omisore is not a misfit and a decision that clearly shows that this is a serious party with good plans that shows inclusiveness.



In view of this, the youths of Osun State have resolved to stand by the candidacy of Sen Iyiola Omisore as the governor and Hon. Yemi Lawal as the running-mate of the Social Democratic Party because this is the only political platform in Osun state where we have seen deliberate and conscious attempts to address the generational gap that exist between youths in Osun State and political platform that has a robust Youth Agenda as indicated in the party's manifesto and blueprint.


The forth coming elections holding on the 22nd of September, 2018 serves as an opportunity for us youths to speak and act with one voice to lend unflinching support to the candidacy that promotion our combined interest as youths in Osun State in the forth coming governorship election.
