Nigerian Youth have been charged to elect only politicians who will help them actualize their dreams by developing potentials.

A stalwart of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bauchi Godfrey Manasseh who made the call in an interview with our Corresspondent yesterday, also warned the youth to shun those who use them as thugs and discard them after election.

“Politics is all about human and infrastructural development in any given society”, he pointed out.

Dr. Manasseh who was addressing over 3,000 youth in Marti community of Tafawa Balewa local government area of Bauchi at the end of a 16 teams’ football competition he organized, said that the event was meant to instill unity, love, and keep them away from criminal tendencies.

Manasseh, an APC Bauchi State Presidential Campaign Council member, urged the youth, particularly in the rural communities nationwide to vote Bola Ahmed Tinubu for President in the upcoming February presidential election.

He said Senator Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu whose track record of developing Lagos and humans is well known when he was the Governor, is very much competent to govern Nigeria and take it to the promise land.

“APC Presidential candidate if voted, will focus on local government councils, he will focus on Nigerian youth, and provision of infrastructure, industrialization of Nigeria at all societal levels, and curb insecurity”, he said.

At the state level, Dr. Manasseh called on Bauchi youth to vote for Air Marshal Sadique Baba Abubakar retired, who he said is ready to bring various dividends of democracy to their door steps as a state governor.

He pointed out that, Ambassador Sadique Baba Abubakar has a bold record of developing young people as seen from his military record and what he has brought to Bauchi so far.

“Marti will have better roads, other social amenities and youth empowerment, unlike previous governments we elected into office, but neglected us”, the APC chieftain informed the youth.

Responding, the youth who were from Bogoro, Dass and Tafawa Balewa local governments of the state and neighboring Plateau states thanked Manasseh, a one time aspirant to House of Representatives from Bogoro, Dass, and Tafawa Balewa Federal constituency for the message of hope.

In the football competition won by Zuya ZMT fc, Manasseh informed the youth that similar event will be held every two years as a peace binding factor.

He said that the Nigerian football talent should hence be properly packaged for export.

According to him” football all over the world today is no longer a mere recreation thing but a money spinner that has made millionaire out Ronaldos, Messi,and several others and more popular than most world leaders”.

In a related development, village heads, traditional tittle holders, stakeholders and elders in Tafawa Balewa local government area of Bauchi state have collectively assured that that they will vote APC Gubernatorial candidate in the state.

Dr. Manasseh also said that the traditional leaders have also resolved to support and vote for the APC Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the president of Nigeria come February 25, 2023.

Marti village head Baba Bernard Marti stated this while exchanging views with Mr. Godfrey Manasseh who paid him a visit as a son in his Marti palace.

Baba Marti who decried the absence of local, state and federal governments’ presence in his domain said” we need development so that we too can belong to modern world. Any administration willing to provide better life for us, is welcome”.

“We have been neglected for so long despite our block votes and loyalty to each ruling government, yet, we don’t see any progress here”, he said.

Earlier, Mr. Godfrey Manasseh, had told the octogenarian that, “both Tinubu and Sadiq will neither marginalize or neglect Marti community if voted into power.

Meanwhile a meet-the -elders’ gathering by Manasseh, Bauchi state Presidential Campaign Council member from Tafawa Balewa local government has been fixed at an undisclosed date and venue.
