The youths who pledged to retire old and self politicians in the local government in the forthcoming local government and councillorship elections in the state, stressed that such persons will not be elected to run the affairs in the Council.

The youths who were led by their National President, Emeka Nwokporo and Publicity Secretary, Polycarp Obinna Alegu, lamented that Ezza North local government Area has always been disadvantaged and afflicted with leadership malady which they said was why it is the most underdeveloped in the state without any meaningful project for the good of the local people.

“The good works of the state governor, His Excellency, Rt Hon Bldr Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru which is anchored on the “people’s charter of needs” should be replicated at the grassroot and at Ezza North in particular to ensure even development in the state.

“We have had leadership failure in the council steered by old politicians and we can’t risk having old person again as our council boss. We need a youth with vision to lead the council for the good of the people.

“We have assessed our youths and leaders at the council and seen that you are the best to man Ezza North and lift the council from socio-economic and political backwardness”, the youths said.
