Cross River 2019: Group Declares Support for Godswill Edward

By Victoria Apata, Abuja

A political movement, #WayForwardForBetterLife, has lent its support
to the Special Adviser to the Cross River State Governor on Youth
Affairs, Prince Godswill Edward come 2019.
The movement, a branch of the popular UN-endorsed Non-Governmental
Organisation, NGO, Arise O Nigeria, said it was putting its weight
behind Prince Edward and doing it this early as a result of his
antecedents and their firm belief that he would ensure policies that
would favour the youth in the state.
In a chat with AljazirahNigeria, Amb Jonathan Daniel, founder of the
NGO, disclosed that, “Arise Cross River #Wayforward2019, which is
one of the state clusters of the NGO has declared its intentions to
support Prince Godswill Edward who he described as “a credible young
man filled with great energy, high sense of humour and has over the
years displayed a deep humanitarian passion for Youths and the entire
people of Abi/Yakkur LGA, in Cross River State.
He stated that, “the #WayForwardForBetterLife is a platform of
reputable Nigerian Youths within the country and in the Diaspora who
seek a new political order, a new Nigeria, rendering a voice for the
voiceless, a group with the mandate to empower vulnerable Nigerian
youths, women, children, and make them gainfully empowered towards
ensuring an improved standard of living in line with achieving a
sustainable grassroots development in 2019 and beyond.”
According to him, “being concerned that the antics of some failed
political leaders will lead Nigeria into a state of indescribable
misery characterised by death, hunger, disease, illiteracy and
manipulation, Arise O Nigeria decided to create a support group, a
platform to mobilise citizens of goodwill and conscience towards
installing a credible leader capable of bringing about the desired
opportunities for all.
“It is very pertinent that we utilise this opportunity to build a
common front towards socio economic and sustainable development of
Crossriver State through this group.
“We are in partnership with credible civil societies filled with
technocrats and youths, giving them the opportunity to showcase their
leadership abilities in their various communities while galvanising
maximum support for credible and God fearing personalities into power
towards achieving a better sustainable economic development.
“We will be working on a multilevel governance approach to deal with
sustainable development challenges as this support group provides
elites and technocrats the opportunity to share their latest insights
and strategies of achieving sustainable grassroots development.
Prince Godswill Edward will be contesting for a seat at the House of
Representatives.
Ambassador Jonathan then called on all particularly the vulnerable
youths and women to urgently heed this call by supporting the agenda
and roadmap of the #WayForward For Betterlife with over 1,785,950
members nationwide.
