A YOUTH political pressure group, Advocates for Collective Transformation (ACT) Thursday in Lagos marched against bad leaders in Nigeria, demanding credible and peaceful election in the country. The group said Nigerians are tired of the same ruling elite who have been in the centre stage of running the country’s political and economic activities since it gained independence. Speaking at the rally to mark the independence anniversary at Yaba in Lagos State Wednesday, the National President of ACT, Comrade Tayo Fashogbon said the rally is to sensitize Nigerian youths on peaceful participation in electoral process. He said, “We want people to choose right leaders into the rightful positions. Our future lies in voting the right candidates.
The only thing Nigeria lacks is good leadership; we are not going to import leaders from abroad. “Nigerians particularly youths are faced with various challenges ranging from acute unemployment, poverty and lack of social welfare. All these trends must not be allowed to continue.” On his part, the Secretary of the group, Comrade Ifetoluwa Ajayi said the body is not sponsored by any political party or politician, adding,‘’the umbrella man only covers himself and his family and the man with the broom can only sweep the dirt around him, we want the system where every Nigerian is carried along.”
