He said hate speeches and various agitation that are not in tune with the constitution of the federal republic of Nigeria has brought the heightening tension in the country.
“The hate speeches and disintegration being promoted by some individuals across the country has drawn the attentions of the Young Leadership Association of Nigeria (YLAN).We are calling on all the parties involved to exercise extreme caution to avoid putting the situation out of control.”
“It is obviously noted that the Nigerian youths are the tools in the hands of some individuals who are determined to disrupte the peace and tranquillity of Nigeria for their selfish interest .YLAN as an organisation that is poised to promote youth participation in peace and nation building is condemning this inimical act of indecency.”
Aa statement issued by the YLAN national secretary, Comrade Ojukwu Remigius said: “We hereby implore the Nigerian youths to aloof themselves from being used by unscrupulous politicians to perpetrate evil in our nation which our founding fathers laboured to keep in unity. Nigeria is one of the greatest nations in the world and making her strength obvious, depends on our contributions to ensuring unity among us irrespective of our religious and ethnic inclination.”
“No nation or society will developed in an atmosphere of rancour. This should be understood for the youths to refrain from any form of violence in the interest of peace and national development as well as channelling their energy towards Building a prosperous Nigeria where everyone will be pleased to dwell. We can only achieve this in presence of love, peace and unity as call for disintegration, destruction of lives and properties will not be helpful to anybody. Unarguably, we are better in unity than disunity. Let the killings and hate speeches cease. Young Leadership Association of Nigeria YLAN equally wants to employ this opportunity to advise the Government at all levels to include the Youths in their Peace Building efforts as well as making them part of the decision-making in Nigeria ,if our nation’s drive towards sustainable peace and national unity will be possible.”
