National Coordinator of the group, Alhaji Asuwaju Babafemi, who stated this at the weekend while briefing newsmen shortly after the inauguration of the south-East zonal officers comprising Abia, Enugu, Anambra, Imo and Ebonyi states held at Codial Hotel, New Haven, Enugu.
He said: “If you look at the present condition of this country and compare it with what it was in the last general election, the change that we wanted is not what we are seeing now. The youths of this great country has been silenced and kept in the dark.
“This is the right time for us to stand up and take the leadership of this country, but we realise that we cannot do that on our own. We need somebody that knows the political terrain, somebody who can take power out from the cabals that are controlling the present government.”
Babafemi revealed the readiness of the youths to ensure the total victory of the ex- former vice president which according to him, is the only person that is qualified to restructure Nigeria without bias, to become the President of Nigeria in the 2019 general election.
“This is because the youths of this country love Atiku. The present condition of Nigeria cannot continue to be managed by someone who do not have leadership qualities or the intellectual capacity to move the country forward.
“The youths want someone who can see other geopolitical zones of the country as one and equal. We don’t want someone who can detribalise others,” he stated.
Earlier in a remarks, the South-East Zonal Coordinator, Apostle Godwin Obasi, called on all Nigerians to support the former vice president, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to ensure that Nigeria is rescued in 2019 general election.
“Nigeria is in dire need of qualified leaders who can move the country forward to the next level in 2019 and beyond.
“We support, with all our hearts, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar not only to win 2019 general elections, but to chase out ethnicity, religious bigotry, civil strife, nepotism, endemic corruption and other ills that slowing down our socio-economic and cultural development,” he added.
