The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ebonyi state chapter has blamed the wanton killings of Nigerians in different parts of the country, especially in the North East on the inability of Nigerian leaders to provide quality leadership and direction in the affairs of the country.
In a statement by the State party Chairman, Barr. Onyekachi Nwebonyi, while accessing situation of affairs in the country, called on youths to set aside religious and ethnic sentiments and harmoniously work towards salvaging the country from perdition.
He said: “We the youths have to put aside religious and ethnic sentiments and work harmoniously to salvage Nigeria that is already headed to perdition. It is only those who have future that can set the country’s future positively. Let us take on this clamour and champion this course from our respective political parties. Our political leanings are different but our aspirations should be the same. And, that is to salvage Nigeria that is already tethering on the brink of collapse”.
He encouraged the youths to wake up now and take their collective fate in their hands by ensuring that only youthful persons with reputable pedigree emerges as candidates of our political parties for the 2023 presidential election.
He blamed the Leadership failure for the insecurity, corruption, and death of Infrastructure in the country.
“What is required by the youth to save the country now is ethical and attitudinal revolution. They should see themselves as a third force and champion revolutionary agenda that will wreck the hold of power by a retrospective population. For a country to move forward requires active participation of the prospective and proactive population – the youth, while the retrospective population – the elderly, only play advisory roles. Only by being adventurous that leaders break new grounds in governance and bring about the needed leadership. Such adventurous spirit is lacking in the elderly.
“Nigerian youths need real opportunities to participate in political processes and contribute to practical solutions that will advance development of this country. Wherever they have been given the opportunity to organize and play meaningful roles in political decision making, youths have consistently demonstrated their willingness, commitment, and ability to foster positive and impactful change” he said.
