Dr Stan Nwokolo, Vice-Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) South-East zone, says Nigerian youths will speak with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) in the 2023 election.
The clergyman stated this in a keynote address at the prayer summit organised by the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-East Youth Wing on Friday in Abakaliki.
According to him, 2023 will witness a PVC revolution and not an armed revolution and urged youths to get their voter cards in preparation for 2023.
He traced security challenges, bad governance and other forms of social maladies afflicting Nigeria to poor leadership orchestrated by past leaders.
Nwokolo, represented by Dr Collins Okafor, alleged that most of the present crop of leaders had continued to recycle themselves in political leadership while killings, insecurity and untold economic hardships had remained unabated in Nigeria.
He, however, said that time had come for youths to rise and take back the country through the PVC revolution and not the weapon revolution.
He said the present state of insecurity, economic quagmire and all forms of social decadence bedevilling the Nigerian society was orchestrated by some youths who found themselves in leadership positions some 20 or 30 years ago but refused to quit the stage.
He said that unless the youths rose and took back the country, the vicious circle would continue unabated.
