The Coalition of South-East Youth Leaders (COSEYL), an apex socio-political youth group in the South-East, has urged the electorate to elect Chief Victor Umeh of the Labour Party( LP) for Anambra Central Senatorial District in the 2023 general elections for the interest of Ndigbo.

The group took the decision after its meeting on Monday in Awka, the Anambra State capital.

A resolution of the group signed by its
President General, Goodluck Ibem and Publicity Secretary, Okey Nwaoru, said its decision for endorsing Umeh was based on Umeh’s avowed commitment in defence of the Igbo cause.

COSEYL endorsement came barely two weeks after an Anambra State Independent Newspaper/blog,the RAZOR, voted Umeh as the MOST VOCAL VOICE IN THE SOUTH-EAST.

The COSEYL resolution endorsing Umeh read in part, “Our choice of Senator Victor Umeh is anchor on the fact that when he was sworn-in as the Senator representing Anambra Central by the then Senate President, His Excellency Dr. Bukola Sakari on 18 January, 2018, from that very day he started defending and working assiduously for his people and the interest of Ndigbo at large.

“He was never found wanting, the interest of Igbo nation was his top priority. He always defended the truth at all times which pitch him against some powerful political forces that worked against his re-election in 2019.

“Now that we the youths of this nation has weaken up from slumber to take over our rightful place in determining who represent us at various public offices, we are only sending those who performed previously in the assignments given to them by the people and Chief Victor Umeh performed creditably well.

“We make bold to categorically state that A vote for Senator Victor Umeh on 25 February, 2023, is a vote to defend Igbo heritage and interest. He is capable, determined and always ready to make sacrifices for the good and betterment of his people. We cannot allow enemies of our democratic institution to work against a man who is selfless in his service to humanity.

“We as the youth leaders of Igbo nation have watch enough from the background, we are stepping forward this time to ensure that only the rightful candidates who have the interest of our people at heart will be elected to represent us.

“Chief Victor Umeh is a man of honour whose election into the Senate will bring home quality democracy dividends like good road network and other tangible projects. He will never be part of any conspiracy to undermine the interest of his people, he has proved it before.

The group added, “Umeh was a strong voice when he was at the Senate and his positive contributions at the floor of the Senate is greatly missed. He stands for development, growth and progress. We have to send him back to continue his good works.

“It is on record which we all can attest to that Chief Victor Umeh have never been involved in any form of thuggery, electoral or political violence, rigging and any form of anti-democratic tendencies. This shows that he is a democrat to the core.

“We therefore urge all and sundry to come out enmasse to vote Senator Victor Umeh who is a symbol of integrity, hardwork and progress. “
