2023: Student Unions assure Peter Obi of 10million bulk votes

…said it has perfected strategies to deliver Peter Obi

A coalition of students bodies under the agies of Students Obi-Datti Network (SON) says it has perfected strategies to deliver 10 million votes for the Labour Party Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi during the 2023 General Election.

The group drawn from current and former executives of students and youth leadership from campuses as well as various organizations across the nation vowed to work for the victory of Mr Peter Obi.

Speaking during the inauguration of its South East Zonal and State Executives in Awka, National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Kenneth Okeke said Obi’s capacity and competence to fix the nation informed their decision.

He said the group took time to understudy the manifestos of all other candidates as well as their track records and agreed to queue behind that of the Labour Party for realization of the yearnings of the citizenry.

He said, “We have resolved to mobilize and create this movement with the mandate of galvanising 10 million votes only from our structure cut across geopolitical zones, state, local government, ward and polling unit levels.

“We are poised in deepening the conversation of domesticating the deployment and penetration of the network in the tertiary institutions through voter education, booth to booth mobilization, awareness in all the polling units.”

Reflecting on its slogan, “Taking the Good News to Our Campuses”, Okeke lamented nation’s retrogressive trend over the years, insisting that the burden of its transformation should be a collective responsibility of all patriotic citizens.

Keynote Speaker, Bar Chinedu Idigo identified high cost of governance, underemployment, insecurity, incessant strike actions, among others as pressing issues to be addressed by any incoming administration.

He challenged youths which constitute about 60 percent of the nation’s population to use their votes to enthrone responsive leadership to change the narratives.

While rallying support for the Obi-Datti mandate, Indigo was optimistic that if the duo were elected come 2023, the nation’s process of recovery would be fully actualized.

Earlier, Labour Party Candidate for Anaocha 2 State Constituency, Comrade Osita Ozalagba enjoined the youths to sustain the struggle for good governance and work for the party’s victory to ensure accelerated economic development.
