BENIN—GOVERNORSHIP aspirant of All Progressives Congress, APC, in Edo State, Mr Blessing Agbomhere, has said that the people of the state need a youthful governor to succeed Governor Adams Oshiomhole in 2016.
He said that only youths can save the dwindling economic situation in the state and the nation as a whole, noting that it was because of the prevailing hardship across the country that he decided to run for the governorship of the state on the platform of the APC.
The aspirant who also is the President of the Movement for Youth Engagement in Governance, said, yesterday, while declaring his intention to join the guber race: “It is sad that we have very few youths in political positions across the country and it is not good for us as a nation.
“We need young and vibrant minds to begin to run our economy. Most of the economies of the world today that we appreciated are driven by young people.”
