The ex-wife of Senator Arthur Nzeribe, Njideka Ndiwe, has appealed to the youth in Nigeria to come out en masse and vote President Goodluck Jonathan at the forthcoming general election.
Ndiwe, popularly called “mother of Nigerian youths worldwide, said her support for Jonathan’s second term ambition was based on his remarkable achievements in key sectors of the economy.
Ndiwe, who is also the president of Global Youths Initiatives, spoke in Onitsha recently.
She specifically praised Jonathan’s achievements in the areas of power, rail, agriculture, sports, and health.
She commended the president for making the youth a veritable instrument of national development by empowering them through his numerous poverty alleviation and youth empowerment programmes.
Ndiwe said the Jonathan administration had created various platforms for youth’s participation in policy making and national development and commended the president for evolving “community-driven development initiatives.”
Describing Jonathan’s housing policies as the best the country has seen in recent times, Ndiwe urged the youth to reciprocate the patriotic zeal of the president by voting for him en masse in the February 14 presidential election.
