Years After Dumping Party, MKO Abiola’s Daughter Dragged On Twitter Over APC Youth Leadership Position

Rinsola Abiola

ABEOKUTA - Rinsola Abiola, daughter of late MKO Abiola who was once a pillar in the youth wing of All Progressive Congress, APC is currently being chastised on social media, Twitter especially, after she announced on the platform that she will be throwing her scarf for the position of National Youth Leader of APC.

Rinsola who made her intention known on Thursday said she made up her mind after several months of consultations.

She said “After several months of consultations, I have decided to throw my scarf in the ring and vie for the position of the National Youth Leader of our dear party, the All Progressives Congress [@OfficialAPCNg]”

Rinsola had in 2018 described APC as a party with undemocratic principles that stifled youth development.

Specifically, she said that APC was only sloganeering on youth participation in active politics.

She further stated in her letter of resignation from the party that her desire to pursue youth liberation on the APC platform was met with resistance and stern warning to steer clear of mainstream politics, especially concerning running for any elective office.

Reacting to the latest development on her political career, some of her followers on Twitter questioned her for vying political position under the same party she left years ago for not being youth-friendly while some threw their support behind her.

Here are some reactions:

@Kempez2017 “You’re vying for a “Youth leader” after leveling the party as not Youth friendly and undemocratic. What has changed? 🤷”

@Ayowaleh “If loyalty means anything, you won’t be bold enough for this but I guess people like ain’t it. May Dada win. His win will give some of us hope of what loyalty should be in politics”
