Osahon Is Capable, Don’t Drag Gov Obaseki To The Crisis – Edo NYCN



Re: Edo State Chapter Of The National Youth Council Of Nigeria Crisis Deepens As Youth Drag Edo State Government To Court

THE National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), has called the general public to disregard the claim of an article trending of the social media over the leadership of the council.

It was alleged in the article that the “Government of Godwin Obaseki through the Commissioner of Youth and Sports presented one Mr. Osahon Obasuyi as the choice of the government to lead the Council”.

The Public Relations Officer of NYCN in Edo Comrade Charles Osagie made the statement in a press release made available to Nigeria Happenings on Thursday.

Read the statement in path: “The attention of the leadership of the National Youth Council of Nigeria has been drawn to a publication making the rounds on the social media of a purported imposition on the Edo State Chapter “an over aged candidate to lead the National Youth Council of Nigeria”; in the said article, it was alleged that the “Government of Godwin Obaseki through the Commissioner of Youth and Sports presented one Mr. Osahon Obasuyi as the choice of the government to lead the Council”.

“Ordinarily, we would not have responded to such a weightless and misleading article that seeks to disrespect the person and office of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki as well as that of the duly elected Chairman of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Edo State, Comrade Osahon Obasuyi, but to put the matter in proper perspective, and so as not to give the pen-for-hire writers the opportunity to justify their falsehood; we wish to state for the records that, the current NYCN Chairman, Edo State Chapter, Mr. Osahon Obasuyi, was eminently qualified, duly contested and won convincingly the election of November 20th, 2018, he has long been sworn in and currently leads the Council; we are however not unaware that there were certain challenges on the day of the election which by investigation suggests that some persons who thought the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Edo State Chapter should have remained their birthright orchestrated many of those challenges, this was done to cause confusion and render the current Council ungovernable; but to God be glory, they have failed.

“That some youths took to the streets to protest against the emergence of Comrade Obasuyi as the NYCN Chairman according to their false report, could only have happened in their dreams. As the Council under Comrade Obasuyi’s leadership has since been making youth friendly advocacies and strengthening institutional relationship with several concerned organizations and stakeholders.

“Their cheap strategy to mislead the public led them to claim that the Edo State Government came to the inauguration ceremony of the 12th Chairman and Executives with heavily armed security men; whereas it was only a few invited dignitaries who attended the ceremony escorted by their respective policemen attached to them that were sighted on the fateful day.

“That Mr. Osahon Obasuyi is today Chairman at the Council for the interest of Edo youths remains their greatest threat and unhappiness.

“We also wish to state strongly that at no time did the Obaseki-led government direct the Commissioner of Youths and Special Duties to influence the result of the election against the will of the people; Mr. Osahon been an active member of Boys Brigade Nigeria already qualifies to aspire for any office that may be declared vacant at NYCN by virtue of the fact that Comrade Osahon’s primary organization Boys Brigade Nigeria is a natural affiliate of the National Youth Council of Nigeria at both the National and State levels; for which the people decided on November 20th, 2018; we expect that these rabble rousers disturbing the peace of the airways with paid advertorials ought to rally behind the current Osahon-led Council to advance the course of youths in Edo and Nigeria in general.

“The Chairmanship of the National Youth Council of Nigeria is not and cannot be the sole right of anyone and these pen-peddlers should desist from casting undue aspersions on the Edo State Government and the leadership of NYCN, Edo State.

“We wish to call on the relevant authorities to call the sponsors of the several libelous articles making the rounds against the State Government and Council’s leadership to order otherwise, we will not hesitate to drag the sponsors and executioners of this wickedness and outright disregard for the rule of law before a competent court of law.

“Comrade Osahon Obasuyi is determined to continue to advance the course of Edo youths through the instrumentalities of NYCN, Edo State Chapter, we advise detractors to desist from their inhuman adventure and join the struggle to liberate our youths from the iron grip of unemployment, lack of skills and illiteracy.”
