The mantra in Imo State is change. And the general perception is a silent consensus that youths should take over the reins of governance of the State in 2019.

What was whispered in low tones has become a loud ovation and a general consensus among Imolites.

The verdict among the Imo citizenry at the moment is it is time for the Youths to lead Imo.
Governance is a serious business and this is why it is pertinent only a youth well “baked” in the art of governance is saddled with the responsibility of governing Imo State.

At a time the globe is embracing youth in governance as exhibited in France where 39 year old Emmanuel Macron was elected President and a 34 year old lady appointed a Minister in Botswana, it is important Imo State catch up with the wave that youths should govern.

What Imolites require at a time there is a consensus that the State needs the best to manage its affairs is a vibrant, tested and trusted youth capable of effectively navigating the ship of governance of the State.

Experience in governance is a huge factor and also an added advantage for any youth aspiring to take over the mantle of leadership of the State. This is why it is also necessary that a youth that is conversant with the rudiments involved in governance is saddled with the task of governing Imo State in 2019.

Hon. Tony Chinedu Nwulu represents the face of an Imo youth that has shown impressive leadership qualities having proved his mettle at the House of Representatives as a vibrant legislator, a seasoned administrator with the spark of a leader capable of taking Imo State out of the doldrums.

The member representing Oshodi/Isolo 11 Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives but a native of Eziudo in Ezinihitee Mbaise local Government Area of Imo State has demonstrated strong ability to give Imo State responsive and responsible leadership when elected as Governor.

A son of the soil, a man of impeccable character and exceptional quality, Tony Nwulu was born on November 14, 1978. He had his early education at Aba- Owerri Road Primary School, Aba and his secondary education at Merchants of Light Special Science School, Oba, Idemili, Anambra State.

He proceeded to the Abia State University where he obtained a Bachelor of Science (B.SC) in Economics. In furtherance of his quest for educational attainment, Nwulu undertook leadership courses at the prestigious Harvard University.

Till date, he remains a Change Agent of the renowned citadel of learning. Thereafter, he ventured into private business where he proved to be an effective manager of both human and financial resources that yielded desired results.

This led to his appointment as Pioneer Country Manager of the First Nokia Centre in Nigeria from where he headed other several companies in Nigeria that made huge impact on the nation’s economy.

His foray into politics has been remarkable. His burning passion for youth involvement in leadership led to his appointment as Chairman, PDP Youth Restructuring Committee where he was saddled with the task of formulating policies aimed at strengthening the PDP youth wing.

The committee was inaugurated by Uche Secondus, then in his capacity as acting National Chairman of the PDP.

At just 37, he joined the race to represent Oshodi/Isolo Federal Constituency in Lagos State and a year later when he turned 38, he had his name engraved in gold by shattering ethnic barriers and cleavages in Nigerian politics which has been a major “disease” like cancer that has eaten so deep into the nation’s political firmament.

He succeeded to re- enact the giant political strides of Late Nnamdi Azikiwe who was the last Igbo man to win a federal seat in a Yorubaland by clinching the House of Reps seat for Isolo/Oshodi Federal Constituency in a State firmly controlled by the All Progressive Congress, APC.

This remarkable feat compliments his exhibition of a strong capacity not just to govern but to restore the years the locust has eaten in Imo State.

His political antecedents, sagacity, dexterity indeed bear the footprints of a young rising political leader whose burning passion to render service as Chief Servant of Imo State cannot be over emphasized.

At the House of Representatives where he has exhibited legislative prowess, he has proved his undying commitment to youth involvement in governance.

This propelled him to initiate the #NotTYoungToRunBill on the floor of the Green Chambers which has triggered unprecedented approval and support from millions of Nigerian youths.

The Bill tends to encourage youths active participation in governance.

More than 30 States Houses of Assembly in Nigeria have adopted Nwulu’s Not To Young To Run Initiative which is awaiting presidential assent from President Muhammadu Buhari
