The executive members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Odukpani Chapter, Cross River State have passed a vote of no confidence on the LGA Chapter Chairman Comrade Offiong Eyo Okon.
In a press statement made available to CrossRiverWatch, the executive members said “The vote of no confidence which was passed on the Chairman after due consultation with stakeholders and arising from an exco meeting held on the 31st of July, 2014 resolved that the said Chairman, Offiong Eyo Okon is running a parallel youth organization alongside the National Youth Council of Nigeria thereby projecting his own organization at the detriment of NYCN.”
The statement which was signed by nine of the executive members also accused the Chairman of failing to account for all the monies collected on behalf of the Youth Council since he was sworn in October, 2012.
He was declared incompetent for not calling an exco meeting since he was sworn in while using the position of Chairman Youth Council to negotiate with politicians within and outside Odukpani LGA for his personal benefits without briefing the exco or the entire council of his adventures.
Offiong Eyo Okon has been asked to hand over all properties of the Council in his possession to the Vice Chairman, Comrade Ita Ita Nya without further delay and warned him to desist from parading himself as the Chairman of National Youth Council of Nigeria, Odukpani Chapter.
