Presidential candidate of the Young Peoples Party (YPP), Kingsley Moghalu, has said that the endorsement of a particular candidate by Ohanaeze Ndigbo would not affect the choice of youths in the elections.
Moghalu told the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Awka that Igbo youths would not be compelled to vote for any candidate just because elders in Ohanaeze approved such person.
“We in the South East now know that our elders in Ohanaeze have been economical with the truth. They tell us what they want us to believe for reasons best known to them.
“This time around, the youth in the region have decided to vote for candidates that appeal to them in terms of development plans for the country.
“I did so much for the country while serving as the deputy governor of Central Bank of Nigeria.
“I introduced POS services; the ATM card was also my initiative, as well as Bank Verification Number for identification of accounts.
“I did all these to make the economy vibrant. It is also my contribution towards making ease of doing business possible.
“If given the chance, I will do more for the country to enable it join the league of developed countries where youths will be proud to stay and earn their living,” he said.
