A wake up call has come from the National Association of Nigerian Students, Zone B, for all eligible adults in the country to work together to defend the nation’s democracy.
NANS Zone B, External Affairs Director, Joshua Onwe, who made the call in Abakaliki, stressed that it is the citizens’ civic duty to participate in the political and electoral processes to choose credible and selfless leaders.
Onwe decried the political apathy among youths, stressing that their involvement in politics was needed to build strong and economically virile nation.
He warned that failure of the eligible electorate to actively participate in the process could lead to the emergence of bad and non-credible leaders
The students’ leader called on the people especially, youths, to be in the vanguard to enthrone sustainable democratic structures that would foster responsible and responsive leadership.
