The former youth leader of Young Democratic Party (YDP), Amakiri Bishop, has emerged the national chairman of the party, following the resignation of the former national chairman, Mr Ezekiel Nya-etok.
With this development, Bishop, who is in his early 30s, is seen as the youngest party chairman in Nigeria.
Speaking with LEADERSHIP in Abuja, yesterday, a chieftain of the party, Comrade Idris Usman, noted that the party under the leadership of the former chairman, Nya-etok, had grown and developed to the point that the younger generation could easily take over the mantle of leadership.
According to Comrade Usman, the personae of Bishop will attract Nigerian youths to the party, thereby making it the party to reckon with in future elections.
“The new chairman is vibrant and full of vigour. He will, no doubt, make YDP an alternative to the challenges of Nigeria today. It is the fastest growing political today in Africa.
“We have great confidence that Amakiri Bishop will lead the party to become one of the largest political parties, not only in Africa, but in the entire world,” he added.
