He explained that to successfully build the Nigerian envision, there is a need to choose leaders capable of delivering on public good.

He said: “As we continue to encourage youth participation in governance, we should also be intentional about choosing our leaders at the helm of affairs.

“We should support a leader that has proven track record on delivering good governance.
