Reacting to the events that surrounded the unacceptable defeat of Bobi Wine, the Commissioner for Youth Political Participation, Pan-African Youth Union (PYU), Amb. Oladele John Nihi, has described the outcome of the election as a slap on the faces of African youths.
History made in Uganda on the 14th of January, 2021; as the whole world was eye-glued towards the outcome of the country’s presidential and parliamentary elections. And as predicted by majority of election observers, the voices of the people were submerged in a total eclipse of political hazard; which the country’s preferable candidate, Bobi Wine, played victim.
African Youths should awake and take their destinies in their hands, by putting an end to recycled leadership, and analog democracy. The youth Commissioner further stated that this should serve as lesson for Nigerian Youths; as the country approaches another general elections come 2023.
Incumbent President and President Elect of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, who has ruled the country since 1986, was re-elected with 5,851,037 (58.64%), as against his opponent, Bobi Wine who scored 3,475,298 (34.83%).
Bobi Wine, a Ugandan politician, singer, actor and businessman. And currently serves as Member of Parliament for Kyadondo County East constituency in Wakiso District, in Uganda’s Central Region. He is also the leader of People Power, Our Power movement in opposition to President Yoweri Museveni.
The agitation of the People Power, Our Power Movement in Uganda is synonymous to what GYB2PYB Youth Support Group stands for; which is why we are urging Governor Yahaya Bello to contest for President, and lead the youths from the front as we take back what is rightfully ours.
