Marcelli Oguh, House of Representatives aspirant for the Ezinihitte/Ahiazu Mbaise in Imo State, has charged Nigerian youths to utilise the opportunity offered them by the ‘Not Too Young To Run’ law recently signed by President Muhammadu Buhari to end their era of political bondage.

Oguh, a chieftain of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) said with the new law, Nigerian youths had been positioned to liberate themselves from all forms of political and psychological trauma.

He maintained that with the law, the youths should not expect the old generation of politicians to offer them anything on a platter, but should exert themselves in the existing political parties by playing active and positive roles to merit consideration for electoral and appointive positions.

He urged the youths, especially those in Ahiazu/Ezinihitte Mbaise Federal Constituency, to ensure that they use the 2019 elections to test their capacity and capability, stressing that the new law was in their favour to vie for various positions.

Oguh maintained that the ‘Not Too Young To Run’ law opened great opportunities for youths to perform better than old breed politicians in leadership positions, stressing that going by the new law, everyone could be a potential leader, even at the presidency.

He urged the youths not to allow themselves to be used as thugs by old breed politicians who he stressed had nothing to offer the people, adding that such people would only use them for criminal activities and electoral fraud, only to dump them.

Oguh advised the youths to package themselves well to earn respect among the people, even as he called on the people to support APGA, adding that no other political platform would offer them better opportunities.
