Oodua Youth Coalition Tasks Youths To Team Up To Rescue Nigeria.
The Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC) said Nigeria is in dire need of visionary leaders that will harness her full potential for growth and development.
OYC, in a new year message, enjoined progressive youths to close rank and present a viable alternative that the people can trust ahead of the 2023 elections.
The group in a statement issued by its National President, Tayo Oluyi urged the youths to rescue Nigeria from the claws of old generals predating on the nation’ s common wealth.
The statement added, It’s with great sense of gratitude to God that We, the leadership of the Oodua Youth Coalition (OYC) wishes to congratulate our teeming members and the entire youth population in Nigeria at large on the successful completion of an eventful 2021 and transition to a new year of endless possibilities, 2022.
“In the year 2021, pegging the standard of living of residents of Nigeria, economic development and growth, and security of lives and properties as an index to gauge the quality of leadership displayed by the current occupant of government in Nigeria, one will know that the country is in dire need of visionary leadership that will harness her full potential for growth and development.
“While we as a youth organization advocate the take over of the country’s leadership by progressive youth, we understand that power isn’t served ala carte, it’s on this basis that we enjoin progressive youths to close rank and present a viable alternative that the people can trust as we go into electioneering in the new year.
“In the new year, the youth bloc must against the directionless rule of the current leadership show difference in ideology and vision as exemplified by the likes of Chief. Obafemi Awolowo, Nnamdi Azikwe and a host of others.
“The mission to rescue Nigeria from the claws on old generals predating on our common wealth must be at the front burner for the teeming youth”
