Mr. Ofume said: “What we have as the ruling party in Delta State has not been able to give Deltans what they want. What we have currently as government has not augured well for Delta State. YDP has come to stay; It is the party of t young people that is out to give leadership back to the people.
“This is a new era; it’s a new time in Delta state; we have a task to move YDP forward in Delta State. Our aim is to move from being and opposition party to being the party in power in the state,” he declared.

It is the party for the youth.”

We believe it’s time for the youths to take over the ruler ship of this country. We are old enough,” the national chairman said.
Answering a question, Mrs. Dakpokpo said YDP is made up of young professionals. “We are not an appendage of the PDP or any political party. We are young; we a see ourselves as the vanguard, and we have the verve to take Nigeria to places,” stated.
