Uduaghan Cautions Youths To Respect Elders, Participate In Ongoing PVC Registration


Immediate past Delta state governor and front line Delta South senatorial aspirant, Mr. Emmanuel Uduaghan has cautioned youths against over what he described as the disrespectful way and manner young people aspiring for public offices display lack of respect and demean elders on the social media.

Mr. Uduaghan while admonishing the youths to desist from such act, he challenged those who are yet to have their permanent voters cards (PVCs) to do so without further delay by going to register within the space of the period of grace given by the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).

“Your Permanent Voters Card (PVC) is as important as your Life at this time of our country’s history and democracy.”

Former governor Uduaghan who gave the advise, last week Wednesday in government house Annex, Warri, Delta state at the just concluded 2018 Youth Political Conference organised by Core Delta Youth, led by a youth leader and commonwealth youth ambassador, Mr. Uyero Erarawewho Junior, took time to interact with the youths, charging them to take into cognisance the efforts of Core Delta Youth in organising such a political conference for their benefits.

According to the senatorial hopeful and chairman of the occasion, for the youths to be useful to themselves and the society, they have to change their perception and ideology, adding that the theme of the event “Changing The Old Narratives In A Fast Emerging Young Socio-Political Economic Development And Good Governance In Nigeria”, called for a paradigm shift and total departure of old ways of doing things far back in the sixties and seventies.

Uduaghan however opined that to fit into the new narrative and the change of order, the youths must be ready to embrace it with a full heart, stressing that the future of the youths depends on the forthcoming elections, saying that throwing supports and weights behind a candidate, the youths must take into cognisance the germane issues revolving around their social habitat like lack of education, drug abuse, unemployment and other social vices among others.

Earlier in his opening address, Coordinator, Core Delta Youth, Amb. Uyero Erarawewho, charged the youths to shun violence, thuggery and say no to doing the bidding of any blood sucking politician in this political dispensation, even as he encouraged the youths to see themselves as the solution to their present and future putting behind the past issues.

“We can only change the old narratives if we stand up as youths to engage ourselves positively in politics as we make up 65% of the electorates. We have to be relevant and that is what Core Delta Youth stands for, being committed to good governance and 30% inclusion of youths in government.”

Delivering his speech, on the theme “Changing The Old Narratives In A Fast Emerging Young Socio-Political Economic Development And Good Governance In Nigeria,”, the Key note speaker, Mr. Lloyd Owonaro, PDP South South Youth leader, noted that youths represents the future of tomorrow not minding that for long, Nigeria leaders have carved the notion and belief that political leadership is meant for the elderly.

Mr. Owonaro, said to change this assertion, youths should study and emulate persons like, former President of Zimbabwe, Robert Mugabe, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of Uganda and late Muhammed Gadaffi who were all African youths that fought, took over power and managed to win the battle.

“It is therefore time to be proactive, contribute meaningfully and show readiness to change the old narratives that you all are entangled in.”, Owonaro stated.
