Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Youth Council Worldwide has warned Nigerians youths against perpetrating chaos in the country.
The advice came as the nation awaits with anxiety the judgement of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, today, Wednesday.
Naija News reports that there is palpable tension in the air with the fear that there could be protests should the judgement go against the expectation of certain persons.
Supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and that of the Labour Party, LP, want the Tribunal to sack President Bola Tinubu. But for Tinubu’s All Progressives Congress, APC, members, his victory was well deserved and should be affirmed.
Speaking via a statement made available to journalists on Tuesday, the National President of the Ohanaeze Youth group, Mazi Okwu Nnabuike pleaded with the youths not to be hoodwinked by politicians.
Okwu said there were indications that politicians would “recruit youths as usual to protest the outcome of the judgement.
“We, however, advise youths across the country to resist the temptation; it is only in times like this that politicians remember the youths. Once they get what they want, we are forgotten.
“No youth should make himself a willing tool in the hands of these desperate politicians.”
He further reminded the youths that the Appeal Court was still a first instance, stressing that “whatever is the outcome is still subject to the final judgement of the Supreme Court.
“We, however, appeal to security agencies not to harass or maim any Nigerian today; rather, they should secure the lives of citizens.”
