“The world today is moving towards a youth-led government as can be seen in many countries of the world like Canada.
“We feel it is right that a youth with capacity, knowledge, and know-how of the workings of government with a proven track record of performance like Hon Usulor should be allowed to lead the state”.
“That Hon Usulor, himself a youth who knows the problem and challenges of the youths and is tune with modern youth trends will relate very well with the youths and galvanize them into an effective change army as governor and by so doing help in ending youth restiveness in the state”
“That for these and other reasons not stated here we therefore endorse Hon Christian Usulor for Ebonyi governorship election 2023”, they said
The Ezza youths appealed to other clans in the Abakaliki bloc and the good people of Ebonyi state to support the Lawmaker to succeed 7871-5344-5304-56748 Governor David Umahi.
They claimed that Mr. Usulor, a three-time member of the House of Assembly, has a proven track record of performance and ability to change the fortunes of the state.
The youths, who assured Mr. Usulor’s ability to deliver democracy dividends to the people of the state noted that the Lawmaker is a thoroughbred politician who understands the importance of accountability to his people and consensus building in governance.
“That to buttress our seriousness and our resolve to support him, we promise to pay for his party’s governorship form and are ready to make further financial support as may be required from us at any time even though we are sure he is capable of footing the bills himself”, they said.
