Bet me, if you continue doing positive things, it will surely, attract good people. I was the one that cultivated the idea of holding this event and singlehandly, financed all that happened today. The benefits might not be here now, but it will create a path to dependable future.
This is what our leaders supposed to be doing, instead they can only remember youths when they need someone to snatch ballot boxes for them, carry out violence on their behalves and commit crimes to their gains.
Is time for us, Nigerian youths to rise up and take our future in our own hands. Our leaders are not interested in us but to themselves”, he said.
