Convener of the New Nigerian 2019 Movement (NN19), Dr. Chima Anyaso, recently received another commendation from Chief Onuoha Ogba Bourdex, a political leader and senatorial aspirant on the platform of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in Abia State, in what appears to be another recognition of a well-sustained campaign aimed at ensuring that Nigerian youths are given the platform to actively participate in politics.
While speaking recently in Igbere, Abia State, Bourdex praised Anyaso’s commitment to ensuring that the voices of youths are heard in Nigeria saying that recent activities of the NN19 movement have indeed changed the political landscape in favour of youths.
As a result of the success of this campaign for youth active participation, Bourdex urged Anyaso, who is seeking to represent the Bende Federal Constituency in the Federal House of Representatives under the PDP, to remain steadfast in the advocacy while urging him to also see to it that Bende Federal Constituency which Anyaso is seeking to represent is placed on the front burner when he is eventually elected.
The APGA Abia North senatorial candidate, who led a delegation on a courtesy call to the Igbere country home of Anyaso was optimistic that the young politician will actualise his political ambition under any platform because of the kind of followership and support he enjoys, urging him to consider APGA as a platform to fulfil his dream.
In his response, Anyaso said: “I like to thank you Chief Ogba Bourdex for leading this delegation to visit me. I have known you for over twenty years. You are an upright man. For the past ten years, you have visited my home with your family every Christmas. This shows how much we have known each other. However, I thank you for offering me your platform, but I will remain in PDP because I believe in this party and also because of my personal relationship with the governor, Dr. Okezie Ipkeazu. I am very confident that I will fly the PDP flag come 2019 general election as I already have the support of my people.”
It will be recalled that Dr, Chima Anyaso led a delegation of young Nigerians recently on a courtesy call to prominent Nigerian leaders, among whom were former President Olusegun Obasanjo, retired General Ibrahim Babangida and former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, in a bid to enlist the support of these leaders for youths to be given the platform to play more active roles in the Nigeria political space.
