The Guber ambition of House of Representatives member, Hon. Tony Nwulu got a huge boost as thousands of youths from the 27 Local Governments of Imo State called on him to run in 2019.
The youths who gathered in their thousands at All Saints and Angels Cathedral Church, Egbu, Owerri North LGA at the weekend, uniamoulsy declared that Nwulu to represents the new face of leadership in the state, urging him to stepup and declare for the guber seat ahead of 2019 election.
With more than 30 different youth groups and various student organizations present, their leaders said that Hon. Nwulu has the qualities needed for the liberation of Imo State and in unison, said he has demonstrated a strong passion for youths development by initiating the Not Too Young Bill in the House of Representatives
The State Coordinator of Imo Youth Renewal Movement, Comrade Chukwu Kelechi Kingsley in his address, said they made the call on Nwulu in order not to repeat the mistakes of the past.
He described the 39 year old lawmaker as ‘an ideologue visionaire, a leader of leaders, philanthropist par excellence and a global citizen’
He said; “Tony Nwulu is a quintessential Nigerian loved by all and continuously grateful to the good people of Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency for their support as always”
Chukwu also described him as non-tribalistic, well-educated and a focused leader who has the interest of young and old at heart.
“We are more inclined to him courtesy of his Not Too Young To Run Bill and his clamour for youth inclusive government, youth empowerment and national security” Chukwu declared.
He appealed to the Ezinihitte Mbaise born Federal lawmaker who shattered ethnic barriers to win the Isolo/Oshodi Federal Constituency seat in Lagos State not to turn Imo youths down, vowing to mobilize all and sundry to support his governorship ambition.
“We would at this juncture, rise to echo and re-echo to public notice, the position of Imo youths that based on character, youthfulness, pragmatism, traceable trademark records and taking cognizance of the zoning arrangement in Imo, we demand that the not too young to run man, Hon. Tony Nwulu occupy Imo Douglas House come 2019 as executive Governor of Imo State”
Chukwu recalled Nwulu’s antecedents in various field of human endeavour describing him as the best and right man to lead Imo State.
The highlight of the event was the declaration by representatives of Imo youths under the auspices of Imo Youth Renewal programme from the 27 local Government Areas of Imo State.
Hon. Nwulu who is presently undergoing aleadership course in Harvard University, is expected to respond to this call very soon.
