PATRIOTIC Front youths in North-Western Province have congratulated President Edgar Lungu on his victory in the August 11 general elections and the Constitutional Court.
PF provincial elections youth chairperson Herald Zholomi told the Daily Nation that President Lungu’s victory was inevitable because of his commitment to develop the country.
Mr Zholomi said youths in the province were happy and also positive that the Head of State would take Zambia to greater heights especially that he has been given a full five-year mandate.
He said his re-election showed how much trust the people of Zambia had in his leadership. He also said the youths in the province were excited that the ConCourt ruled in a fair and honest manner, adding that the party would continue to salute the courts in the country.
“So I would just appeal to our colleagues in the United Party for National Development to just concede defeat, get back to the drawing board and focus on 2021,’’ he said.
He said the youths in the province were behind the Head of State and that they would fully support him so that he could deliver the much needed development to the people of Zambia.
He said the stance taken by President Lungu to take development to every part of the country was welcome and needed the support of every well-meaning Zambian. “We are very confident and positive that President Lungu will deliver according to his promises despite the economic turbulence in the country,’’ he said.
And Mr Zholomi has urged the youths in the province to continue being peaceful because the PF was a peaceful party.
He said PF members should follow the footsteps of President Lungu who has been preaching peace and to continue to love one another.
“Despite all the provocation from the UPND, the President has kept calm and always preached peace. That is why we have not recorded any acts of violence,” he said.
