Mr Uche Secondus has said the party was coming up with “Generation Next” programme for repositioning youths to take over leadership in 2019.
He said that the programme was designed to prepare the youth to take over political leadership in the country.
According to him, with the programme, age barrier will be removed and a 25-year old that is popular and intelligent can be voted into power as governor.
He said that Gowon succeeded in keeping Nigeria as a united entity along with other military governors who were also youths.
“Unless you come out and volunteer to make that sacrifice, you will not be noticed and the country will be missing you.
“Today is the day to go into memory lane, make firm declaration and stand by it; the country needs the youth and the party is ready to allow you participate,” he said.
Secondus said that Nigeria had never been polarized as being witnessed currently, adding that unless the youth rose to rescue the nation, there would be nothing left for the next generation.
He said that the rebranded PDP was practicing internal democracy and assured that henceforth, they would be no imposition of candidates in the party.
