Ahead of the upcoming presidential election next month, Osita Chidoka, a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP chieftain, has stated that the challenges of youths in the Southern and Northern portions of the country are distinct, adding that they (northern youths) will vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Chidoka further claimed that no one in the North moved during the EndSars protest because it was not a concern for them.
He made the statement while answering questions on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics program on Sunday.
According to the former aviation minister, there is no national youth movement that might influence votes in favor of Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi.
He said, “Let me take something like the youth votes. There are 37 million people between the ages of 18 and 35. Of these 37 million people, nine (9) million of them are in the Northwest, 26%. So there is no national youth movement. 4.1 million of them are in the Southeast 11%. Obi can’t sway those votes.
“The issues before the youths in the South and youths in the North are different. So when we were talking about EndSars, nobody in the North moved because this is not a problem for them.”
