“At this current state that we are in this country, what we need is a president that understands how a sane system works.
“A president that knows his onions- What to create, what to correct, what to eradicate and then the result. What we have so far including Peter Obi are candidates who just make noise on social media.”
Speaking further, he reiterated that young Nigerians in the corporate world today are ready to work and vote for Prof Chris based on his credible track record and ability to perform excellently well in his private capacity.
“We have seen what you have done in your private capacity and in the education sector as well. These are the reasons why we have chosen to back you to become Nigeria’s President come 2023.
“We have our own future to look out for and we see that you are capable of protecting our future and charting a new course for our nation, particularly in the education sector which we believe if properly addressed, all other issues can be fixed.”
He also urged Nigerians regardless of their religion or tribe to support Prof Chris who he described as young, strong and willing to serve Nigeria.
On his part, Prof Chris thanked the group and urged them to continue to mobilise the youths to participate in the coming poll and leave social media.
