By: Ezioma Anosike
I have heard a lot about YAGG and I had an opportunity yesterday to sit down at the Marriott Quorum in Dallas, Texas and speak with Umunna Adrian Nwachukwu (Randy), the Imo State coordinator of Youth Ask for Good Governance (YAGG) and also Special Assistant to the speaker of Imo State House of Assembly.
Randy, a graduate of Abia State University, former Imo State University Okigwe, lives in Coppell, Texas with his beautiful wife and their two children.
How would you best describe yourself?
I am a free spirit, wise beyond my years. I would describe myself as being young at heart and taking every day to the fullest - living it up and making a difference in the community. My desire is to inspire the youth while staying humble for opportunities that have come my way and thanking the people every step of the way. I can make any situation fun and light, and I think people like being around me.
Can you tell us about YAGG?
YAGG short for Youth Ask for Good Governance, was founded to assess good governance in Nigeria from state to state.
What is your mission?
Our mission is make sure that the dividend of democracy reaches the massses in all states in Nigeria.
Anything you want to add to close this interview?
We are appealing to the people both home and abroad to continue to support the governor of Imo State Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, and the speaker of the Imo state house of Assembly, Honorable Benjamin Chukwuemeka Uwajimogu, to finish the good work they started in Imo State, and also to support them in their vision for 2015.
