The Anambra North candidate of the Labour Party, Dr. Tony Nwoye, has urged Nigerian youths to be part of the electoral system come 2023, to enable them determine who leads them afterwards.
Nwonye, who is a former president of the National Association of Nigerian Students, spoke at Nsugbe in Anambra East Local Government while signing peace accord to demonstrate his commitment towards peaceful and credible poll.
