Youths in the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Cross River State, have concluded plans to organise a One Million-Man March in the state for the party’s presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates of the party.
State APC Youth Leader, Mr. Effiom Otu, stated this after the youth wing of the party held a meeting where they condemned the postponement of the Februauy presidential, National Assembly, governorship and state House of Assembly elections.
Otu also said the youths would embark on a door-to-door campaign for the party in all the 2,283 polling units in the state to educate and sensitise the electorate to vote for the party’s candidates.
“We will organise a one-million youth march in the state capital soon in solidarity with our presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari and other candidates to garner more support for the party ahead of the elections,” he said.
On the postponement of the elections, Otu said: “The Presidency was caught in another web of cajoling by feigning insecurity as the reason for the postponement because it could not convincingly pull through the issue of PVCs collection as initial reason for the shift.”
