NYCN Seeks Resolution Of Labour Strike, Road Sweepers Imbroglio

In Breaking News, Reports

By Patrick Obia

The Cross River State Chapter of National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has called on the organized labour to suspend its indefinite strike which has grounded the State for more than a fortnight.

The NYCN also lent its voice to the politicking ahead of the 2023 general elections, the dilemma of the Calabar road sweepers and the protest of ex agitators.

These four resolutions were made at the one day stakeholders meeting on Thursday, in Calabar.

The four resolutions reached were:

1. Supporting power returning back to the Southern Senatorial District.

2. Plead with the Organized Labor to suspend the ongoing industrial action

3. Condemning in strong terms, police tear-gasing Calabar road Sweepers.

4. To keep a close watch on the Bakassi Ex-militants agitators who protested.

Speaking shortly after the event which drew members within and outside the state as well as the diaspora, the State Chairman, Comrade Dan Obo, said their stands were issues the youths do not need to overlook especially as 2023 beckons.

Mr. Obo assured that, come 2023 young people will wrestle power and give it to a credible candidate from the south no matter who is involved. He noted that the zoning structure should be maintained

“The aim of the meeting is to form a common front and also try to sustain some legacies of our parents thinking that it’s going to enshrine peace as we move forward.

“2023, we are interested on who governs us, there is no two ways about it and so the first thing we need to do is to identify which direction we are going to get someone to govern us for and that direction is the Southern Senatorial District we have come to agree that, as young people whose vote and mandate is above a political party we have decided we are going to support a southern Governor.

“In 2023 we expect leadership that will get Cross River State working.

“On the Calabar women Sweepers who were tear-gassed, we totally condemn that; we condemn the tear gasing of our parents. When I heard it as Chairman I felt bad but I keep saying this government is not a government for protest; it’s a government we want to dialogue, a government that wants to build synergy. In as much as we are condemning tear gasing of our parents we are calling on the government to pay them their stipends because they have worked and they deserve it; that’s our position. We want government to pay them their money. We condemn tear gasing them today, tomorrow till next week,” he ended.
