The Osun Youths 4 Atiku (OY4A), a youth focused mobilization group for the actualization of the Rescue Nigeria Project of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has asked the people of Osun state, particularly the youths who are yet to collect their Permanent Voters Card (PVC) to take advantage of the ongoing ward collection process to do the needful.
The charge was made in a new year message issued Tuesday by the association’s Director of Media Engagement and Advocacy, Comrade Ebby Oluwasegun Ige.
The group urged Nigerians not to despair as a result of the unprecedented hardship the ruling APC government plunged the country into, saying the time to recover Nigeria from the hands of the “inept APC leadership is now.”
The statement reads in part: “The opportunity presented by the coming 2023 elections is one that we as youths must use to take action, the emphasis is on the youths because we are the demography that is most hit by the failure of the APC led government, therefore the upcoming election should be a referendum on the performance of the APC, we must take action to flush them out.
“According to the voters statistics from INEC, out of the over 9.5 million new voters captured in the last voters registration exercise, over 7.2 million representing 7.5 percent are youths, the implication is that we now have a new order, the youths now hold the ace in determining those who get elected as our leaders.”
“The ‘Operation Rescue Nigeria’ project of the PDP’s flagbearer, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, is the most articulated, realistic and youth friendly manifestos from among those of all the other contending parties.”
Comrade Ebby Ige enjoined Osun youths to vote en-mass for all the candidates of the PDP at the coming elections to recover Nigeria begining from Osun state.
