The South-South Youth Students Organisation, SSYSO, the umbrella body of all former and present Students Union Government presidents and students in the South-South region, has backed the ambition of Dr. Dakuku Peterside, governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Rivers State.
The organisation noted that with Peterside, the future of youths in Rivers State was assured.
Speaking when they paid a solidarity visit to the Greater Together Campaign office of Mr. Peterside in Port Harcourt yesterday, the group’s leader, Tonye Tom-George, called on South-South students at home and abroad to support the APC candidate, who, he said, has a clear-cut agenda for Rivers State and its youth.
He said: “Peterside is the candidate of hope and opportunity for young people in Rivers State and the entire South-South and we must take full advantage of the candidate’s emergence by voting massively for him.
“With Dr Peterside, our future as youths in Rivers State is assured. I can say this boldly because the APC candidate is competent and he fears God”.
