Ebonyi youths endorse lawmaker for governor


Youths of Ezza Ezekuna have endorsed the member representing Ezza South State Constituency in Ebonyi State House of Assembly, Chief Christian Usulor, for governor in 2023.

The Ezza Ezekunna clan is one of the most dominant in Abakaliki bloc of the state.

The youths under the auspices of Ezza Youth Alliance, the umbrella body of all Ezza youth groups, announced the endorsement in a communique issued at the end of their meeting.

It was held in Onueke, which is the traditional headquarters of Ezza clan and council headquarters of Ezza South Local Government Area.

The Communique was signed by Comrade Ikechukwu Dorstan Aliugbala and Mr Obaji Sampson, Chairman and Secretary of the youth group.

They noted that the lawmaker has the capacity and ability to become the fourth civilian governor of the state.

“That we, having reviewed the prevailing political situation in the estate today, make bold to state that Hon Christian Usulor possesses all the qualities needed to lead the state as the fourth civilian governor of the state,” they said.

They added: “Usulor comes from a tested, trusted and highly revered Usulor political dynasty having learnt the art of politics from his Father and late patriarch of the Usulor political dynasty, late Senator Usulor.

“The world today is moving towards a youth led government as can be seen in many countries of the world like Canada.

“We feel it is right that a youth with capacity, knowledge and know-how of the workings of government with proven track record of performance like Hon Usulor should be allowed to lead the state.

“Usulor, himself a youth who knows the problem and challenges of the youths and is tune with modern youth trends will relate very well with the youths and galvanize them into an effective change army as governor and by so doing help in ending youth restiveness in the state.

“For these and other reasons not stated here we therefore endorse Hon Christian Usulor for Ebonyi governorship election 2023.”

The youths called on other clans in Abakaliki bloc and the people of Ebonyi to support the lawmaker to succeed Governor David Umahi.

The youths further argued that Usulor, a three-time member of the House of Assembly, has a proven track record of performance and ability to change the fortunes of the state.

The youths, who vouched for Usulor’s ability to deliver democracy dividends to the people of the state, noted that the lawmaker is a thoroughbred politician who understands the importance of accountability to his people and consensus building in governance.

The youths also called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the good people of state to give him the necessary support to emerge as governor.

They urged the lawmaker to formally declare his gubernatorial ambition, promising to give him all the necessarily financial and moral support he will require from them.

“To buttress our seriousness and our resolve to support him, we promise to pay for his party’s governorship form and are ready to make further financial support as may be required from us at any time even though we are sure he is capable of footing the bills himself,” they said.
