With this milestone achievement, the political landscape in the country has been irreversibly altered.”

The new political group which has been working frantically round the clock for its registration by the Independent |National Electoral Commission (INEC) was described as panacea to giving Nigerians, especially the youth a proper and committed sense of direction and belonging, and way out of the present despair and hopelessness.

Senator Annie Okonkwo who represented the Anambra Central district between 2007 and 2011 had noted at the maiden Youth Summit held at the Emmaus House grounds, Awka, yesterday.

The Senator who was the chief Guest Speaker at the summit, berated the situation of things in the country where the governments at different levels have been paying mere lip service to the welfare and future of the youth. He noted sadly that the ugly trend has encouraged some of them to embrace anti-social behaviours.

He lamented that governments had abused, neglected and manipulated them, which has rendered many undiscovered talents into outlaws. He therefore called for the concerted efforts to be championed by Annie Okonkwo Youth Vanguard to discover the Bill Gates of Nigeria among our youth.

He urged the youth to propel a change of leadership in the state through the ballot, for people with the love and drive for youth empowerment and upliftment.

He told the mammoth crowd that it was to give and restore hope to the youth and give Nigerians a new lease of life that led to the emergence of APC.
