Nigerians youths have been warned: Shy away from thuggery. The warning was given by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Bola Tinubu.
According to Tinubu, the mindset of destruction will not make them attain their goals, TheCable reports.
The APC nation leader disclosed this while commenting on looting, vandalism and arson that followed the ENDSARS protest.
He said the government is ready to help the youths get the right education.
“Don’t copy vagabonds and those who are into thuggery. There is no development if there is no peace. We must encourage peace. The government will ensure that you get the right education. Education is an investment in your future."
“Destruction and disruption will not help you to reach the destination you desire to reach. We will support your aspirations but help the state, ensure peace in our state and country.”
Recall that Legit.ng also reported that Tinubu berated the administration of the ex-governor of the state, Akinwunmi Ambode.
He said the ugly development led to the decision by political leaders to bring Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and Obafemi Hamzat on board.
Tinubu stated that though there was scepticism about Sanwo-Olu and Hamzat, they have not disappointed the people of the state.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Akeem Adeyemi, a federal lawmaker representing Oyo East, asked Nigerians to support the 2023 presidency bid of the APC national leader.
It was reported that Adeyemi, popularly known as Skimeh, made this call on Tuesday, February 23, describing Tinubu as "generalissimo of Nigerian politics."
Paying a tribute to Tinubu’s resilience and capacity for survival, Adeyemi said the APC national leader demonstrated high doggedness while serving as an opposition governor during the administration of former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
In a related report, ahead of the 2023 presidential election, Tinubu was given the nods to succeed President Buhari.
This is as his staunch supporters and loyalists met in Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, to launch a presidential campaign movement tagged "The South-West Agenda (SWAGA)" for him.
The SWAGA movement, led by former minister of works, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye (Ekiti) and former senator Adesoji Akabi (Oyo), paid a visit to the Olubadan of Ibadan, Oba Saliu Adetunji, and the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi.
