Do not act as a distraction, Soludo answers South Asian youth

Young people in the South East have been warned by Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State not to allow themselves to be used as agents of distraction but rather to understand that they are the nation’s future leaders.

The warning followed a threat by the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) to dump trash at the Anambra Government House to express their displeasure over remarks made by the governor regarding Mr. Peter Obi’s candidacy for president of the Labour Party (LP).

Through his press secretary, Mr. Christian Aburime, the governor responded and urged the young people to reconsider rather than consider themselves to be a part of the social problem that needs to be solved.

Soludo questioned why young people would allow themselves to be used as tools by politicians or other people who, in his opinion, have no positive intentions for them.

He believes that politicians only want to use young people to further their selfish ends before discarding them.

“Instead of threatening to come and dump refuse at the Government House, the youths should rally round and support the government of Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, because his administration is actually working for the betterment of their lives, to see that both the youths of this present generation and the generation to come will have something that can make life more meaningful for them,” he said.

In addition to giving youths various key positions in his administration, he claimed that thousands of young people are currently being trained and given opportunities to develop their vocational skills throughout the state by Soludo’s government. This, he claimed, is strong evidence that youth empowerment is one of his administration’s main priorities.

Aburime reiterated that the Soludo administration remains focused on bringing the benefits of democracy to Nd Anambra and would not be diverted by any type of verbal attack or threat, while describing the threat made by the youths as a sponsored charade by political rivals and troublemakers who want to distract or impede the progress they are making in the state.

Regarding the question of whether Governor Soludo would retract his remark about Obi, which the youths demanded he do before Friday, Aburime stated that the governor is not prepared to do so and insisted that he has no regrets regarding what he said.

Contrary to popular belief, he nevertheless characterized the relationship between Soludo and Obi as cordial and stated that their friendship and brotherhood remained unbroken.

He added: “As far as I know, there is no issue between Governor Soludo and Mr. Peter Obi.

“So I wonder why people disturb themselves and go about shouting in the media and issuing one threat or the other over a non-existent issue. These are totally uncalled for and the people indulging in such should have a rethink”.
