Soludo wondered why the youths should allow themselves to be used as tools by some politicians or individuals who, according to him, have no good plans for them.
To him, the politicians’ aims are just to use the youths to achieve their mischievous objectives and dump them thereafter.
“Instead of threatening to come and dump refuse at the Government House, the youths should rally round and support the government of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, because his administration is actually working for the betterment of their lives, to see that both the youths of this present generation and the generation to come will have something that can make life more meaningful for them,” he said.

Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, on Thursday, November 17, urged the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, to ignore envious critics, especially those from his home state of Anambra.
The Rivers governor said this during the inauguration of the Nkpolu-Oroworokwo Flyover in Port Harcourt, the state capital.
Obi was a special guest of honour at the inauguration which was attended by a massive crowd who chanted the name of the LP flagbearer when he mounted the podium to speak.
Peter Obi’s purported investments are worth next to nothing, Soludo declares
Soludo earlier said the investment of Peter Obi when he was the state’s chief executive is worth next to nothing at the moment.
Soludo made the comment in an interview with Channels TV’s Politics Today on Thursday, November 10.
When asked his perspective on government investing outside the public sector with reference to Obi as former governor in Anambra, Soludo said:
“I don’t know about the investment. Our interview is about the 2023 budget. I’m not talking about investments of any of my predecessors.
“By the way the one that you talked about I don’t know about that. I think there was something I read about somebody speculating about whatever investment. With what I’ve seen today, the value of those investments is worth next to nothing. So, let’s leave that aside.”
