Nwosu who was also a governorship candidate on the platform of Action Alliance. (AA) in the last Imo State governorship election enjoined youths to wholeheartedly embrace active politics as a way forward for the younger generation in the governance of this country.

Speaking with journalists at the Unity House in Abuja, he.said:

“Over the years the Nigeria youths have consistently taken the position of being neglected in the politics and running of governance of the nation.

“The older generation, this agitation boiled up to give rise to the ‘not too young to run’ bill passed by the NASS in this current administration.

Uche Nwosu in his position said “PMB has passed the ‘not too young to run’ bill, everything has been given to us, the age limit for House of Assembly is not what it was before; the age limit to be a governor is not as we use to have it before; the age has been reduced a bit and the bill has been passed.

“So what are we still waiting for? Instead, we are on our phones typing and abusing leaders.

“Meanwhile, you have your pvc, you can organize yourself and bring out who you want to vote for. The environment has been cleared and everything has been provided for.
