We the youths of the South East geo-political zone, after extensive and very robust engagements and deliberations availed us by the PDP National Youth Forum held here in Akwa, Anambra state, state as follows:

1. Commend the National Working Committee of the PDP, under the able leadership of Prince Uche Secondus, for convoking this all-important National Youth Summit, which has reawakened discussions and strategies for greater involvement of the youths in governance, political leadership, and party administration in our country.

2. Recognize the unprecedented involvement of the youths at very top levels of governance and political leadership by successive PDP administrations, in addition to the roles played by the PDP in youth development and leadership mentoring since 1999.

3. Lament that the gains achieved by the PDP in youth involvement in governance and political leadership have all been eroded by the APC administration leading to utter relegation of the youths and consequential negative effect on youth development and governance.

4. Note that the PDP action plan on youth in governance and leadership is enshrined in the PDP manifesto, which makes it the best platform for youth participation in governance and political leadership. 

5. Unanimously resolves to consolidate discussions on the platform of the PDP for greater youth participation particularly as the nation prepares for the 2023 general election as well as the 2021 governorship election in Anambra state.  

6. Resolve to forcefully support and work with the PDP in the Presidential, governorship, federal, and state legislative elections in 2023.  

7. Resolve to support and work for the PDP in the 2021 governorship election in Anambra State. 

8. Call for greater participation of the Southeast youths in all processes leading particularly to the nomination of a PDP Presidential candidate in the 2023 election.

 9. Urge the PDP to commence a massive online registration for millions of youths that are eager to carry the PDP cards as registered members of the party ahead of 2023 elections.

10. Further urge the PDP to consider the southeast in the conversations for nomination of candidate for the 2023 Presidential election. 

11. Commend the Prince Uche Secondus-led NWC for its effort in convoking the summit and request a continuous youth conversation ahead of 2023 general elections and 2021 Anambra governorship election.

12. Commend the PDP National Youth Leader, Comrade S. K. E. Udeh-Okoye, for his ideological driven leadership of the PDP Youth Directorate that has brought about this current continuous discussion and assessment of youth participation in politics and governance. This is a first of its kind in political party youth administration in Nigeria, and is highly commendable.
