Young people in Nigeria are prepared to retake their country from what Comrade Solomon described as “political monads that have held the country down,” according to Comrade Solomon, the Abia State Coordinator of the Peter Obi Support Network (POSN), a political support group for Labour Party presidential candidate Mr Peter Obi.
The young activist promised that by 2023, “Nigerian youths will retire all the political principalities that have damaged their future” while launching the Abia State chapter of POSN in Umuahia.
While President Muhammadu Buhari won the 2019 presidential election with 15,191,847 votes and Atiku Abubakar came in second with 11,262,978 votes, he said that “Nigeria youths would mobilize over 40 million votes for Peter Obi in 2023.”
Solomon claimed that Obi’s supporters in Nigeria are doing so because they “saw in his optimism and the emergence of a new Nigeria.”
“POSN was founded out of the drive for a better Nigeria by well meaning Nigerians to select from among the presidential contenders’ someone who has a track record of honesty and aptitude to pull our country back from absolute collapse,” he claimed.
We require a responsible leader who can manage a smart government and has the moral and political fortitude to alter the course of events.
We need a genuine reform that will give Nigerians new hope and trust in their nation, regardless of tribe or religion, because we are tired of the current system.
According to him, the Peter Obi movement is the main political movement in Nigeria now that “is keeping others up at night.”
They claimed that we were a minority, but I can assure you that we have already overtaken them as the majority. The manner that Obi moves is like a wildfire consuming everything in its path. Even the most courageous among the others are now uneasy.
He claims that despite their pretences, the two major political parties are actually terrified of the Obi movement, and some of them are starting to acknowledge this is obviously the case.
Members of the movement across party lines, according to the former president of the student union government at Abia State University.
Hon. Justice Obi, the group’s state organizing secretary, joined in by declaring that Nigerian youth had awoken from their slumber and would make sure they exterminated the “political locusts in 2023.”
He emphasized that having a PVC is one of the requirements for membership in the club and urged those who wanted to join to get one before the registration deadline.
Contrary to popular belief, Dr Obi asserted that the movement’s ability to raise money would never be a problem since people are willing to donate money and sell their land “to ensure we rescue our country from the hijackers.”
Speakers at the gathering claimed that although they were not politicians and had never expressed an interest in politics, they had now made the decision to “get actively involved because of Peter Obi.”
Youths from all throughout the state showed up in large numbers to the event.
