Anambra State Association of Town Union (Youth Wing) on Friday 6th January 2023 at the Asatu government house Secretariat conducted her State general election that saw the emergence of brand new leadership to move the association forward.
Recall that the State government in late 2022 through the ministry of youth suspended the earlier scheduled election of the number one youth association of Anambra State, citing security and some irregularities as reasons which led to constitution of a Caretaker committee ably led by Cmrd Andrew Francis Chibuko.
As mandated, the committee cleared path for this January election under heavy security watch.
The election saw a massive turn out by the youth leaders of the 179 communities of the State including the lady organizers.
Attended observers and supervisors included Hon. Patrick Aghamba honorable Commissioner for youth, Anambra State, the leadership of the Asatu parent body and President Generals of some communities, Asatu Youth pioneer President Hon. Osita Ozalagba and others.
The entire election process from accreditation to voting and declaration of winners were witnessed to be peaceful, free, fair and credible.
Kudos to the caretaker team, ministry of youth, Asatu parent body and of course the solution government.
