Nigerian adolescents have been called a few things by lawmakers; Lazy, reckless and bumbling being only a couple of the famous words utilized by legislators when it suits them. In a 2018 gathering in London, President Buhari expressed that numerous Nigerian adolescents are sluggish and planning something sinister – an explanation that has become the slogan and a mobilizing bring in the #EndSARS fight.

This dissent has incited numerous Nigerians to demand responsibility from their chiefs more than ever. It is additionally prompting an upheaval in the Nigerian political circle as an ever increasing number of youngsters are requesting their place in the ‘room where it occurs’.
Twitter is right now overwhelmed with a pattern looking for the making of an ideological group for the young people and by the adolescents – The Youth Democratic Party, YDP.
Basically, Nigerian adolescents have assembled in their powers to propose an ideological group to blacklist two ground-breaking resistance groups – the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressive Party (APC). Where the force elements appear to be turned between the two gatherings with next to zero change, the YDP is trying to change the story with the incorporation of youngsters who are prepared to accomplish the work.
