The National Youth Council of Nigeria, loyal to Sukubo Sara Igbe has called on the public to disregard any statement on the dissolution of acting coordinators of the 23 local government area.
The Public Relations Officer of NYCN , Rivers State Chapter ADOKIYE MUJITON in a press briefing in Port Harcourt said the Chairman of NYCN in the state Sukubo Sara-Igbe did not authorize the dissolution of the local government coordinators.
ADOKIYE MUJITON stated that Sukubo Sara-Igbe is the duly elected Chairman of NYCN in the state since 2015 for a four year tenure.
”The State Executive Council of the National Youth Council of Nigeria Rivers State Chapter, led by Amb Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo having been elected on the 30th day of June, 2015 for a tenure of four years remains the duly recognized Executive that has the legal right and authority to represent the act on behalf of the youth council (see judgement order of his Lordship Hon Justice C.D Green delivered on June 4th 2018)”.
”That the public should discountenance any statement made by Chijioke Ihunwo that the acting co-ordinators of the 23 local government areas of NYCN in the state were dissolved by him with the intention to conduct election of any kind. This is mischievous and not from the National Youth Council of Nigeria Rivers State Chapter” Mujiton stated.
”That the said Chijioke Ihunwo has been on suspension following his action which caused disaffection among members of the youth council and staff of the Rivers State Ministry of Youth Development. Therefore the said Chijioke Ihunwo is not the chairman and has not been a chairman of National Youth Council of Nigeria Rivers State Chapter” he said.
The Public Relations Officer of NYCN , Rivers State Chapter ADOKIYE MUJITON also said that the Ministry of Youth Development does not have the right to seal their state secretariat in Port Harcourt.
