Solomon Dalung, not to interfere in the election of leadership. of the Fourth Session of the Parliament of Young Nigerians.
"As an intellectual component of youth demographics, we will resist any attempt by the Minister or any ministry official to influence the electoral process of leadership in this fourth NYP session design that will be inaugurated next week.
"We frown at the level of ineptitude that Bar. Solomon Dalung has exposed in the administration of young people in this country.
"We do not ignore the fact that Nigeria's National Youth Council (NYCN), the only youth organization recognized nationally by the federal government of Nigeria, has been in disarray for over a decade and the minister who has spent more than three years in charge can not even solve this crisis in a friendly way
Adeyemi also warned the ministry's leadership not to impose any candidate on the Youth Parliament.
