Uche Okonkwo, the Labour Party candidate for the Idemili North and South Federal Constituency in Anambra State, has characterized Nigeria as a country held back by “unforgiving transaction” politicians and that only the young can rescue and free it.
Okonkwo believes that any Nigerian determined to bring the nation back from the verge of collapse should turn to the Labour Party’s “wholesome” presidential ticket in 2023.
He mentioned this in a statement made accessible to media on Monday: ‘ Obi’s running partner completes Labour Party’s ticket of recovery for Nigeria.’
He said that the selection of Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed as Peter Obi’s running partner on the LP ticket has again shown that Nigeria’s rescue is a mission “POssible” and a vision fundamentally “YUSful.”
According to him, the election of Obi and Baba-Ahmed meant that Nigerians would, for the first time, have a taste of leadership from the Aso Rock Villa, always baked on truth, trust, hope, and faith, towards the vital turnaround that is now necessary and mandatory.
He said, “Nigerians’ desperate resolve to take back their country from the brink of collapse has received the most inspiring boost in the now-settled Labour Party’s wholesome Presidential ticket.
“In fact, with the unveiling of Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed as his running mate, Peter Obi has again spoken faithfully that Nigeria’s rescue is indeed a mission ‘POssible’ and a vision fundamentally ‘YUSful’.
“A Nigeria held down so miserably by her unforgiving transaction leaders is a nation only her youths can rescue and liberate.
“For me in particular, this is like an answered prayer because the energy and enthusiasm of the youths are running on free available ‘fuel of freedom’ as citizens that won’t need their festering subsidy of corruption to keep the momentum.”
He emphasized that such generosity of thought by his people was a welcome stimulus to build on the success of his young empowerment organization, ‘Let’s Get Empowered Today.’
The statement read in part, “With the torch of knowledge, capacity, and passion so ably balanced upon these two greats, Nigerians will, for the first time, have a taste of leadership from Aso Rock, ever cooked on truth, trust, hope, and faith, towards the critical turnaround that is now urgent and compulsory for Nigeria.”
“Their ringing songs of moving our country from consumption to production and replacing those who have ‘privatized our profits but socialized our losses’ have already sparked a nationwide movement of ‘YUSful OBIdients,’ eager to reclaim a country so fortunate but cruelly mismanaged.”
“You can bet that in Mr. Peter Obi and Dr. Yusuf Baba-Ahmed, the knowledge kit for the economic surgery we need to recover from blatant political impunities is so convincingly obvious that other disgruntled options have simply become obsolete.”
