FCT Se­nate: Youth group drums sup­port for Wowo

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS -

A youth group, Na­tional Gade Youth As­sem­bly (NGYA) has called on Al­haji Us­man Jib­rin Wowo, to con­test for the FCT se­nate seat in next year’s gen­eral elec­tions.

Pres­i­dent of the group, Com­rade Baba M. Sani, who was speak­ing with news­men in Abuja yes­ter­day while re­act­ing to a me­dia pub­li­ca­tion by the Greater Gbagyi De­vel­op­ment Ini­tia­tive (GGDI) ti­tled “In­di­genes re­ject Wowo” said no in­di­gene of FCT has re­jected Se­na­tor Wowo’s bid to con­test the FCT Se­nate seat in 2015.

He said as far as the Gade Youth As­sem­bly is con­cerned, the Greater Gbagyi De­vel­op­ment Ini­tia­tive are on their own, not­ing that what the for­mer se­na­tor has done while rep­re­sent­ing the FCT in his short stay at the se­nate, has not been matched.

“The Gbagyi have no man­date that will make them re­ject our brother, if they be­lieve that Se­na­tor Wowo is not rep­re­sent­ing them, we the Gades and other orig­i­nal in­hab­i­tants tribes be­lieve that Se­na­tor Wowo will be rep­re­sent­ing us in 2015,” he said.

The group said it is a shame that the one the Gbagyis say they rec­og­nize is not do­ing enough for the FCT.

“When the women of Gosa vil­lage were protest­ing the evil called de­mo­li­tion of their an­ces­tral home, what did the greater Gbagyi do about it?” they asked.
