- Some Nigerian youths have been offered free tickets to contest in the coming 2023 elections
- The offer was made by the African Democratic Congress
- Specifically, the party is targeting youths like 2baba, DJ Switch, Ahmed Musa and others
For Nigerian youths, the chance to contest the 2023 general elections have been opened wide for them as the African Democratic Congress (ADC) offered some the platform to do so.
Specifically, the party called on Innocent Idibia popularly known as 2baba, DJ Switch, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, and soccer star, Ahmed Musa among others to come and contest on their platform on a free ticket, Vanguard reports.
The offer was made by the party's national chairman, Ralph Okey Nwosu while receiving a certificate of endorsement of the party as the one-party for Nigerian youths and women.
According to Nwosu, these people have given back to the society more than some elected officials.
Going further, he said the youths have the chance to contest the governorship, senatorial or even the presidency, New Telegraph added.
He alleged that many of the bandits terrorising the country were sponsored by the same people who wanted former president, Goodluck Jonathan, out of power at all cost. The ex-CBN deputy governor made the claim during an interview on Thursday, February 25.
Mailafia who did not provide any proof said he was also convinced that some foreign powers were behind the bandits. Speaking further, Mailafia claims that those powerful individuals intended to deploy the bandits for war if Jonathan did not concede defeat during the 2015 presidential election.
In another report, Abiola Makinde, a member of the House of Representatives, defected from ADC to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). This was announced on Tuesday, February 23, via the official Twitter handle of the lower legislative chamber.
Legit.ng gathered that Makinde said he decided to join the ruling APC following alleged irreconcilable differences and crises in the ADC.
