ATIKU PACTS WITH NIGERIA YOUTHS A CHARADE IN ITS ENTIRETY
The supposed pact with Nigeria Youth signed by the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is a deceptive move cooked in deception and executed in a deceptive manner. The well-polished bait by the PDP and her Presidential candidate to cajole Nigeria Youth into their bids lost the sincerity of purpose by the way and manner the handlers of the program had gone about it.
A pact with Nigeria Youths should involve relevant Youth bodies with mandates and authorities to speak on behalf of Nigerian Youths such as the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN). The NYCN remains the apex youth body in Nigeria and remains the body in the best position to represent the Youth of this great Nation when such critical decision is to be taken. Any attempt by any political group or party to score cheap political points by luring Nigeria Youth into their political activities in the proxy will be resisted.
All persons and groups who have attended the political gathering where the said pact was signed had done that in their personal capacity and not in the interest of the Youth. To set the record straight NANS is a representative of the Students (a section of the Youth) and not the representative of Nigerian Youths, any dealings with NANS in the name of the Youth structure remain a charade.
Nigeria Youths are advice to shun the political stunt aimed dragging them into a kangaroo arrangement by proxy, enjoin to votes their conscience and be mindful of the power in their votes. We cannot afford to go back to the era of corruption, lies, and personalization of Nigeria asset. The goal is to get the Youth involved in governance and not play games with us in an insincere manner.
National Youth council dissociate herself from whatever political pact the PDP Presidential Candidates signed with the Youth in whatever guise. The process lacks the proper composition and has further revealed how cunny the PDP and her Candidate could be. To the level of the ingenuity of the program the NYCN distance herself and orders all her structure not to recognize such as an agreement with Nigeria youths.
