“We planned an elaborate inauguration but unfortunately we lost two of our vibrant youth leaders who are also members of the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign organization.

“Security agencies should do something. There is too much killings. We are calling on police and DSS to look into it,” he laments.

According to Nwoye, “what is happening in Enugu State is appalling. An armed female shot the people. They are not Fulanis. They are not Muslims but callous killers.

“Whether they are politically motivated or not, they should stop. They have killed many of our party members,” he cries out.

“There are people from the 260 wards, Christians yet we are supporting Tinubu. We are not looking for religious leaders but political leaders,” he said pointing out that Tinubu/Shettima have antecedents saying that they will perform when voted into power.
