– Ejike Uche Advises youths to obtain PVC
Renowned politician, Chief /Sir Chris Ejike Uche (Dimkpa Asaa) has advised Nigerian youths, to as a matter of necessity, endeavour to obtain the Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC) which is their power to choose next leaders.
Speaking during a sensitisation summit held in Owerri recently by “Our Mumu Don Do Movement,” Sir Uche, who represented the Chainman of the occasion, Professor Francis Dike (SAN), said the programme which was attended by notable youth leaders, activists and stakeholders in the state has become expedient. He maintained that the youths, as leaders of tomorrow the pillars of democracy, have crucial roles to play and their voice should be heard loudly.
Chief Uche, who was also the special guest of honour further admonished the youths to take their destinies in their hands and stop playing second fiddle or being used for ignoble political roles only to be dumped later without appreciation or given.
Sir Ejike Uche, who is the National Vice chairman of UPP thanked Charles Oputa for initiating the movement, saying it would go a long way to benefiting the masses. “Dimkpa Asaa” condemned the administration of Gov. Rochas Anayo Okorocha, saying he resigned as one of his commissioners after just six months because of his poor attitude to governance.
Also speaking at the Summit titled: “Good governance, your right and responsibility ahead of 2019 elections” Comrade Ariyo Barry Aristotle, a member of “Our Mumu Don Do” Movement and also a gubernatorial aspirant in Ekiti State stated that one of the aims of the movement is to end the dichotomy between the “have” and the “have not” and the suffering of the angry and frustrated Nigerians.
“What we are trying to do is to bring exceptional youths, old and young, courageous men and women to come together to liberate the common man”, he said, adding, nobody is going to do it for us unless we do it by ourselves.”
Quoting Charly Boy, Comrade Ariyo regretted that the worst of us are the ones governing the best of us and our duty is to ensure that the best of us are the people serving the worst of us so that the worst of us can become better people.”
“A nation is developed by the courageous effort of the young people and the wisdom of the older people, working together to ensure that we make that deliberate intervention in the affairs of the nation,” he said.
In his speech, the state coordinator of “Our Mumu Don D” movement, Mr. Precious Nwadike recalled that in 2015, food vans were positioned at strategic election centres, where politicians shared and distributed plates of food in exchange of our future, which directly or indirectly led us to where we are today.
“Our Mumu Don Do” is a movement that must be driven with vigor to ensure that our people will reject a plate of rice in exchange with their future, Mr. Nwadike said, and expressed optimism that the seven years of suffering in Imo State will end in 2019.
Dr. Sam Amadi, a strong supporter of “Our Mumu Don Do movement” in his own contribution, insisted that the movement is not about any party or politician but a political movement. He said that unemployment is not a natural disaster rather it is man-made, hunger is also man-made, because there is enough resources in this country to effectively provide for everybody.”
Self acclaimed ‘Area Fada’, and social crusader, Charles Oputa fondly referred to as Charley Boy, who is also the founder/leader of Our Mumu Don Do movement in his vote of thanks, said, “My job as an Area Fada is to find those exceptional youths, gather them together for them to do the needful.” He explained that the movement is not meant for everyone rather it is for the exceptional youths that are ready to fight for the future of this country because we are all surrounded by enemies of our personal progress. He lamented that our gifted and talented youths are perishing in this country because Nigeria is a dream killer, caused mainly by riff-raffs and scumbags that are running this country.
