YOUTHS ADOPT HOUSE-TO-HOUSE CAMPAIGN FOR ELECHI'S RE-ELECTION
BY PETER OKUTU
YOUTHS in Ebonyi State, weekend, adopted a house-to-house campaign for Governor Martin Elechi's re-election bid.
The campaign, which kicked off in Ikwo local government area of the state, witnessed a lot of mini-gathering of people at various designations across the area, drumming up total support for Governor Elechi.
The youths, who were drawn from the 13 local government areas of the state, made it clear that they would work within the lay down rules and guidelines of politics to ensure that no other candidate was sworn-in May 29, apart from the present governor.
Speaking at Ikwo Noyo community in Ikwo local government area, the President, Ebonyi Youth Assembly, and youth leader of the Peoples Democratic Party in the state, Mr. Chinedu Ogah, called on the people not to relent in their support for Governor Elechi as the election drew nearer each day.
Ogah stressed the need for the people to keep their voters card safe awaiting the day of election, charging them to avoid trading their cards for any monetary benefit which would not guarantee them an opportunity to participate in the ongoing electoral process.
He said: 'Anybody who has no voters' card at this time is not of any value to the party and even to the people who gave birth to them.'
'Without your voters card you cannot influence or participate in the installation of government at any level.
'The present governor of the state has a very good credential that no other aspirant can beat in this state. Use the umbrella symbol as the insignia to know where to vote.'
In a remark, winner of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primaries for Ezza South/Ikwo federal constituency seat, Tobias Okwuru, noted that there was no way any other candidate could win the governorship position in the state apart from the present governor.
Okwuru called on the people to support the re-election bid of Governor Elechi, even as they would experience more democracy dividends in his second term in office.
