Any nation without plans for youths is digging its grave – Abia female rep aspirant, Agomoh
. Submits nomination form
By Steve Oko
A frontline House of Representatives aspirant for Umuahia -Ikwuano federal constituency, Dr. Mrs Uju Agomoh has submitted that any country without adequate plans for its youths “is digging its grave”.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant stated this while speaking with newsmen Tuesday at the PDP secretariat Umuahia after submitting her nomination and expression of interest forms.
She regretted that Nigerian leaders had not given the needed attention to youth welfare and empowerment, describing the hopeless condition of youths in the country as “a time bomb”.
The social crusader said that unless leaders in Nigeria urgently address the glaring challenge of youth unemployment, the country would soon be consumed by the army of angry and disenchanted youths on the streets.
She said that if given the opportunity to go to the green chambers she would dedicate ample time to legislations that would restore the confidence of Nigeria youths in the country.
” I will sponsor bills that will help our youths actualise their potentials and dreams. We need bills that will help stimulate our industries to create job opportunities for our youths who are eager to work but have no job to do.”
The legal luminary said Nigeria could be greater through positive engagement of her youths some of who get involved in criminality out of frustration.
Identifying insecurity as the topmost challenge facing Nigeria today, Agomoh promised to evolve legislations that would make the security agencies sit up, and be motivated to discharge their duties.
She also lamented the poor state of health facilities in the country promising to come up with bills that would compel government rise up to its responsibilities on affordable health care delivery.
Agomoh also decried the infrastructural decay in the constituency and promised to leverage on her privileges and contacts if elected to change the narrative.
Other areas she equally promised to give special attention include education, and women development.
” I am a woman; I understand the pains of women and youths, and I am coming with the solution. “
Asked why she was so confident she would get the PDP ticket considering the fact she is a debuntante and the only female aspirant among many ‘powerful’ male contenders including the incumbent, Hon. Sam Onuigbo, she said “God is behind” her candidacy.
She also said she had confidence in the assurance of the party leadership that there would be free and fair primaries.
Agomoh who was accompanied to the PDP office by a retinue of fans and supporters said she had gathered enough experience in her private and public sector said she had come to “make a difference “
Wawa News Global reports that there was traffic snarl as her convoy moved from her Lagos by Niger Road office to the PDP secretariat amidst pumps and peagentry.
Women and youths trooped out in their numbers from across the communities in the three Local Government Areas in the constituency to accompany her to the PDP office.
