The Immediate past Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State, Barr Ben Nwoye has challenged young Nigerians to start showing interest in politics.

Speaking weekend during a one-day Student Summit put together for Students from Nkanu West and East Federal Constituency, held at the Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, Agbani, Nwoye told the students that “as future leaders of tomorrow, you cannot run away from politics.”

“You are all potential future leaders, and I can see amongst you future Nigerian presidents, governors, Ministers, Commissioners and other top political positions at all levels,” he said.

The Federal Commissioner representing South East in the Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission, FCCPC, who spoke on the topic: ‘Political Participation’ also, enjoined the young students to eschew all manner of social vices capable of ruining their lives.

“For you to succeed in life, you must be a responsible fellow. And as students, you must always take your studies very seriously, because that is the only way you can realise your dreams.
