By Ogar Monday

The Cross River State Chairman of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN Comrade Dan Obo has assured that youths in the State will not be available to be used as political thugs in the forthcoming general elections, saying that they have the numbers to have their voices heard.

Obo, who was hosting the Cross River State Technical Committee of the Vote Not Fight, Election No Be War Campaign at the Youth House, also aligned himself with the group’s ideal, saying he has shown himself as an example of a youth that cannot be bought, and hope others follow in that light.

“Fear is what has kept young people away from joining politics, but to implement the change we want, young people need to join politics and play an active role or they will remain under the old men.

“Young people need to hear and know that they can elect candidates of their choice, and they have the power with their votes to effect political change, then it is finished.”

Earlier speaking, Ms. Ukemeobong Albert, the Deputy Team Lead of the State Technical Committee stated that the meeting with the NYCN was a continuation of engagement with stakeholders in the electoral process to ensure peaceful and violent free elections.

“We are here because of the place the NYCN holds amongst the youths and we are asking that youths become more engaged in politics beyond thuggery.”

Ukeme further added that a peaceful electoral space will allow for the involvement of women and persons with disabilities, as violence is one of the major factors pushing that demography away from politics.
