The youngest senatorial aspirant of the APC party in the 2019 general elections, Engr Chinedu Onyeizu has called for the involvement of young people in grass root politics. In his words “ There is no alternative to radical transformation of the Nigerian economy except by enabling a young, competent and razor focused Nigerian to take over power by 2023”.
“Our narratives and demands as a people and as an age demography must change and must be driven by a select few that are selfless and patriotic! The era of religious and tribal devisiveness should no longer be obtainable in the new Nigeria we hope to leave for our children and those that will follow after them”
