A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Tony Okocha has advised youths of the state to be wary of desperate politicians preaching against the interest of the people in a bid to curry favour.
Speaking, as a guest during a youth summit organized in Port Harcourt on Friday, Okocha charged youths to resist roughshods that will threaten their existence.
“Youths of our dear Rivers State, resist roughshods that will threaten our existence. Pussilanimity in the face of “non-sequitors” that make us no less, slaves in our communities, villages, towns and state, is not only a vice, but unforgivable sacrilege,” he said
“I charge you to discountenance the lure by failed and desperate politicians from our state, who maraud our villages, communities and towns, preaching against the interest of our people and state in the useless bid to curry inordinate political favours,” he added.
The theme of the summit : “Linking The Future of Rivers Youths To The Dreams Of Our Founding Fathers”, was organised by a non-governmental organization, Rivers For Rivers Network (RFRN) and the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN).
