The purpose of the summit according to the organisers is to take stock on how the youths have fared under the current administration, and what the future holds for them in the party.

Speakers at the event including the Kaduna state APC chairman Emmanuel Jekada and Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Aminu Shagali believe that the present administration of Governor El-Rufai has given the youths more opportunities than any other government by appointing them into top positions  and creating jobs and other empowerment programmes.
