The Nigerian Youths under the auspices of All Nigerian youths for Sampson Uchenna Charles Thursday said they are not mounting any pressure on Professor Pat Utomi to contest presidency on the platform of the Labour Party in 2023.

“We are solidly behind the candidacy of Sampson Uchenna Charles and that the current Labour Party is the face of the youths of Nigeria and that Sampson Uchenna Charles represents all that we yarn for to build a new Nigeria.

“Labour Party came alive after the submission of the nomination form of Sampson Uchenna Charles and the takeover of the party by his National Movement (Foundation For A New Nigeria) and SUC campaign organizations. The vision for a New Nigeria is the vision of Sampson Uchenna Charles”, he added.
