The protesters under the aegis of Abia Youths Good Governance Advocacy Project, AYGGAP, who staged the protest in Okota area of Lagos said it’s high time the masses began to reap the dividends of democracy rather than being impoverished and relegated to nothing despite their natural endowment.

Their placards gave them out as supporters of Samson Ogah who is in court for the state governorship seat.

The youths who were with various placards were led by  Dr. Nwabuchi Chukwuemeka, Great Imo Jonathan and Honourable  Henry Ogbulogo among others. They called for peace, progress for the entire Abia citizens saying they were denied of jobs, health facilities, equity and justice.

The youths who converged at Nwachukwu street before the protest march frowned at the impuniry abuse of power and total disregard to court rulings,  saying that  its high time the state upheld the court ruling of Abia High Court which pronounced judgement that Dr. Samson Uchechukwu Ogah be sworn as the new governor of the state.
