He continued by saying that the party was prepared to put an end to the agitation by recruiting young aspirants and encouraging them to run for political office.
Mr. Nwosu said of Ms. Dikeh and Tonte Ibraye, the party’s candidates for governor of Rivers: “This two are under 40, they are 37 years old.
And because the general elections in 2023 are at their height, the people of Rivers and all of Nigeria are being challenged.

Nigerian youths have been arguing that they are not too young to run for office and that they should be supported in government for the past ten years.
And the ADC made the decision to sign off on that with the Rivers team that we have assembled.
Nwosu expressed hope that Rivers would champion a shift in the national narrative with the team.
Speaking at the event, Ms. Dikeh said that the nation was currently experiencing a pivotal period in its social and political history, but that desperate measures should not always be the last resort.
The actress claimed that in order to overcome the difficulties facing Rivers and Nigeria in general, a technical approach was required.
“It is clear that the majority of Nigerians, and the good people of Rivers in particular, have long complained about how democratic governance and developmental dividends have fallen short of best practises around the world.
We have also bemoaned the lack of opportunities given to charitable, energetic, and creative youths to participate in and make their fair share of contributions to the development of their states, with a particular focus on Rivers, where I am from.
But to address the problems facing our beloved state, a technical approach is required, she added.
She attributed the high rate of youth unemployment they were facing to their restlessness, insecurity, and other social vices in the nation, adding that she would assist in resolving the issue if given the chance.
She explained that she would deal with the issue by developing strategies for job creation and making sure that more women and young people were included in governance by giving them key roles in Rivers’ development, where their ideas and strength could be effectively utilised.
“Through my foundation, The Tonto Dikeh Foundation, I have positively impacted the lives of millions of less fortunate people as a patriotic Nigerian who supports good governance.
In addition, she said, “I will play a crucial role in moving our dear state forward with my experience on governance, leadership, and administration from Committee of Youth on Mobilisation Sensitisation (CYMS).
She described Ibraye as a gentleman with a steadfast passion for redefining the future of Rivers, as well as a grounded individual in international development endeavours.
She claimed that his goal was to establish a Rivers where there would be interethnic harmony and collective economic growth in all spheres.
In addition to being a good idea, Ms. Dikeh stated that accepting the nomination as the ADC 2023 Rivers deputy governorship candidate was the right thing to do.
“After careful consideration with my family, my deserving coworkers, friends, and political allies, as well as after seeking the face of God, my greatest ally.
In order to support Hon. Tonte Ibraye in his bid to become the next governor of Rivers in 2023, I Amb. Tonto Dikeh, a proud daughter of Ikwere land, hereby accepts to serve as his deputy governorship candidate on the ADC platform.
She claimed that the decision was made to help him take control of Rivers in the best interests of everyone who lived there, regardless of age, class, or religion.
In order to participate in the process of formulating policy and making decisions, she promised to use the chance to advance her career in politics and government and to inspire and encourage other women and young people to get involved in politics.
Dikeh expressed gratitude to the party’s top brass for the chance and urged her followers, teaming supporters, sons and daughters of the Rivers, and all other eligible voters to prepare their PVCs for the upcoming task, emphasising that the future was now.
