The leadership of Gbaramatu Youth Council (GYC) has taken a bold step to explore for a new president to pilot their office for another administrative tenure.

The apex youth organization of the kingdom made this known to our reporter. The disclosure was made by a source close to the current president of the youth group, Comrade Christopher Wuruyai.

The source said Wuruyai has started his consultation with critical stakeholders and opinion leaders of the council to ensure that this was achievable after all corners had been touched.

Comrade Wuruyai averred that  his consultation was to ensure that the whole transition process was done before the end of January 2020.

The source added that the present president was determined to hand over power in the first month of the year.

However, there were strong indications that if need be the electoral clause in the constitution would be quickly amended and adopted to ensure that he kick starts the transition process to subsequently enable him hand over power to a new government to engender the Kingdom have a fresh breath. 

On the issue of zoning, our source was silent on the zoning issue but rather disclosed that there were strong indications that the old status quo might be maintained as this may be the direction of the constitution even when the amendment maybe concluded.
