Earlier speaking, the Southern Senatorial District Coordinator of the Eyo Ekpo Campaign Organization, Mr. Patrick O’Neal told the party men that the SDP has an unwavering believe in the capacity of youths to deliver, and that is why the party has encouraged youth’s participation in the electioneering process, not just as voters but mobilisers.

“We are all aware of what our state has turned into and it is our responsibility as young persons, on behalf of our aged parents, our younger siblings and the children yet unborn to rise up and take charge of our future that removing this government and putting in one that truly represents what we want and have respect for us” O’Neal stated.
