He further added that Nigeria does not need any coward in the struggle for a better tomorrow. Yul Edochie took to the microblogging platform and tweeted at the Nigerian youth saying;
”Gowon was 31 when he became Head of State. Ojukwu led the war at 33. Youths, wake up. Don’t sit at home & tell me it won’t work. It makes you a coward. And in this struggle for a better Nigeria we do not need cowards. Join us, support the movement & together we’ll make it work.”
