Former National President, National Association of Nigeria Students, NANS, Daniel Onjeh, has advised Nigerian youths to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election bid to secure their future.
Onjeh, who is eyeing the Benue South Senatorial seat on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, told his supporters at a crowded rally in Agatu Local Government Council on Wednesday that their support would enable Buhari win the 2019 presidential election.
He also addressed supporters at Apa Local Government Council to woo delegates ahead of the party’s primary.
The aspirant, who doubles as the Chairman, Governing Board, Project Development Agency (PRODA), said the desperation by some older politicians, whom, according to him, had failed, was partly responsible for the campaign of calumny against the president in some parts of the country.
Onjeh reminded them of the signing into law the “Not too Young to Run bill” by the president to encourage young people to participate in politics.
He said the three years of the president in power had witnessed massive growth in the economy and given the fight against corruption a boost.
Onjeh, who is vying for the senatorial seat for the third time, said his determination had not waned because of the deplorable state of infrastructure in the zone.
He said he was pained to see poverty, underdevelopment virtually everywhere within the areas covered by the senatorial zone.
According to him, if elected, he will change the state of social infrastructure and improve livelihood of both the rural and urban folks in the zone.
“Please wake up from your deep slumber and give daybreak a chance,” he said.
