2023: Gbajabiamila denounces division, political conversion based on derision

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila.

Ahead of the 2023 general election, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Representative Femi Gbajabiamila, lamented that the current political conversation is centered on division and derision of young people.

Gbajabiamila said this during a youth and social development summit, organized by the Gbaja Professional Volunteers Network (GPVN) to commemorate International Youth Day 2022 on Friday in Abuja.

According to him, it is unfortunate that political conversations about the upcoming elections are dominated by loud voices of division and derision.

These are according to him, for whom politics is a contact sport, intended to inflict the greatest harm on individuals and the body politic.

He said the voices lifted fake news above facts and the politics of grievance and victimization above the studied examination of political questions and answers.

He added that this would determine the fate of young people who constituted the majority of the population, while urging young people to resist.

He said it was time for the voices of reason and compromise, whose manifest desire was to be part of the solution, to take hold of the debate and make their voices heard.

He said the summit was part of efforts to refocus public debate on matters of substance and consequence, adding that he was honored to be part of the summit.

He urged friends of the country at home and abroad to send in their ideas on the changes they want to see and their recommendations to make those changes possible.

He also said that a Policy Faculty would be established to collate, review and collate ideas and suggestions into practical policy proposals.

Mr. Lukman Lawal, the National Coordinator (GPVN) said the team was led by the speaker’s assistant corps, adding that its main objective was to activate volunteerism as a development model.

He added that the joining of forces, as volunteers; with members of the government, the private sector and households to improve the socio-economic well-being of the mass of the population was their priority.

“We strongly recognize that everyone needs to be on deck to actualize the quantum of positive impact we all want in our country.
“And we are about to identify with the cause of good governance, exemplified by the person of Gbajabiamila, whose mantra of ascension and daily conduct remains “Nation Building, A Joint Task”. (NOPE)
