The South East chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, has alleged that a group of persons is parading themselves as members of the leadership of the council, saying that such individuals are imposters and are only interested in deceiving the innocent public using the name of the body.
It warned all persons who come in contact which such imposters to be careful not to enter into any serious engagement saying that such may amount to being misled or swindled.
In a statement released today in Enugu and emanating from the office of the Southeast Vice President, National Youth Council of Nigeria, Prince Chibuike Echem, reads in part “our attention has been drawn to an attempt by some groups parading themselves as the leadership of National Youth Council of Nigeria. This group is led by one Sokubo.
“We want to use this medium to inform and warn all the members of the public and government institutions who wish to carry out any business with the NYCN that this said group do not represent our interest and that they are, by implication, imposters, and therefore illegitimate”.
The statement further states that “NYCN is one body under the capable leadership of Comrade Bello Bala Shagari who was duly elected by the NYCN Gombe Convention held between 19th to 25th July 2018”.
“We wish to call on the Government of the five Eastern States to refer to the letter sent by the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development introducing the duly elected Members of the National Executive. Any government of the region who carry out any business with this group purporting to be NYCN shall not be doing that in the interest of being the Youths of the zone and will be sabotaging the unity of the NYCN” it said.
