Ewuga, explained that if given the opportunity to lead the state in 2023 his administration would prioritize youth empowerment, create job opportunities in all sectors in order to remove jobless youths on the street.
According to him,” APC Promised to change the fortune of this country but they ended up starving Nigerians, bringing poverty, hunger and insecurity in the state and country at large.
He however called on the people of Nasarawa State to vote for all LP candidates in all elective positions in the forthcoming general election.
Earlier in his address the Labour Party chairman Emmanuel Alexander, said there was no reason for voting APC into power again in view of the current situation Nigerians have found themselves in.
LP Chairman, who explained that members of the campaign council are men, women and youths, cautioned them to support the Labour Party and caution the party loyalists against sabotaging the efforts of the party in the forthcoming general election.
He called on the party’s supporters to come en-mass to vote for all LP candidates both presidential, national Assembly, governorship and state’s Assembly candidates in the forthcoming general election in the state.
