Musa Jakusko, a leader of the group, told our correspondent that the rally would be held In recognition of the transformational policies and investments of Governor Gaidam and President Buhari, developing the much-needed infrastructure for the state and the country, thereby securing a prosperous future for Nigerian youths.
“The call is on us, as youth groups across the political and social divides, to organise a memorable youth gathering in Yobe, to acknowledge this unprecedented feat, and in so doing, declare our choice of candidate for the 2019 election.
“We as youthful Yobeans wish to respectfully inform and invite every conscious Yobe youth to this historic event which will take place at the August 27 Stadium, Damaturu.
“We are massing up thousands of Yobe youths this May. The crowd will be massed up amid danceable music and speeches. Select youth leaders will in turn address the crowd on sector by sector achievements of Governor Ibrahim Gaidam.”
According to him, the achievements of Buhari and Gaidam would be highlighted at the rally.
“We will then educate the gathered youths on how to communicate the achievements to others, in their homes, offices, pubs, shops and workplaces in order to ensure violence-free electioneering, avoid politics of bitterness.”
