Anambra Youths Cautioned Against Thuggery

Youths have been urged not to allow themselves to be willing tools in the hands of self seeking politicians who are desperate to achieve selfish ends.

Speaking in Awka, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Inter- Party Matters, Chief Ben Obi enjoined them against being used as thugs during the Governorship election to avoid endangering their lives and derailing their future.

Chief Obi reminded parents on the need to have firm hold on their children and wards so that they would not be involved in any act that would threaten the effective security network and stability entrenched by the Governor Willie Obiano’s administration.

He urged them to take advantage of the various youth empowerment programmes of the state government and the Governor’s wife to become self reliant.

Meanwhile the state electorates have been reminded that the right to vote is their major political power to elect and institute a government of their choice.

Speaking in Awka, a legal practitioner, Mr. John Okoli- Akirika said election provides viable opportunity to make useful contributions towards deciding who determines and manages their fate.

He enjoined those who are agitating against the structure of the country to conduct themselves within the ambit of the law and should not miss the protest with conduct of governorship election as each has specific and statutory provisions under the constitution and enjoined the agitator not to impede or deny people the opportunity to exercise their franchise.

He called on the federal government to initiate proactive measures to correct inherent lapses in the country’s political systems that marginalized some parts of the country who now feel aggrieved and responded through sustained agitation, stressing that Federal Government policies all programmes should be tailord to promote welfare of Nigerians to give every part of the country a sense of belonging.
