The Cross River State Chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN has again appealed to their governor Senator Liyel Imoke to give them a facelift.
Speaking through the council Secretary General, Comrade Ndiyo Ndiyo, while addressing the press recently in Calabar, the youth body decried what they described as government gross insensitivity to the leadership and welfare of the youth in general regarding the smooth operation and peaceful coexistence amongst youths in the state.
While acknowledging the dogged disposition of governance by the governor in the state, the youths however said so many agreements and approvals have been made by the governor without implementation.
The youths who praised the governor endlessly added that none of the promises and hopes which the governor has raised for them has been fulfilled.” For instance, a letter dated far back as at 30th August, 2010 containing many other requirements expected from every state chapter across the country as adopted by the national body was forwarded to the governor through the South-South Zonal Secretariat for consideration and implementation.
“Ever since then, little or nothing has been done. The Chairman has written several letters in form of reminder and solicitation for the inclusion of the production of the state youth policy, but nothing is happening to give the youth a fair place to operate accordingly”.
The council further passionately appealed to the conscience of the governor and other well-meaning groups and individuals in the state to come to their aid and respond positively to their plights to enable them function as their counterparts in other states.
