He said “as youths who want the progress of Nigeria, we are tired of all the politicians who keep deceiving us that they will provide good governance. Life has become so difficult for the youths because we have bad leaders and that is what we are trying to correct in 2023.
“So far, 15,000 youths have registered with our support group, the Peter Obi Candidacy Movement, and more have indicated interest to join us in the struggle to rescue our nation from the corrupt politicians who do not mean well for us.
“We have great confidence in him because he did very well in Anambra State while he was governor. We believe he will do better if he is elected as president of Nigeria in 2023.
So, we are urging all Nigerians who are yet to get their Permanent Voter Cards to do so immediately in order for us to vote in credible leaders to office in the coming elections.”
