The leadership crisis that has bedeviled the National Youth Council of Nigeria๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฌ(NYCN) was put to rest as the Minister of Youth and Sport Development, Barr Solomon Dalung in line with judgment by a competent court which declared the purported election of Shagari Bello as null and void.

He also validated the Amb Sukubo Saraigbe Sukubo led executive as the authentic leadership of the apex youth body.

A federal high court in Nasarawa state had on16th July, 2018 issued a restraining order stopping NYCN from doing anything further towards the conduct of the planned illegal congress by July 2018 (Gombe congress).

However, in total disregard to the courts restraining order the โ€œillegalโ€ election was conducted. Consequently, Hon. Justice Haruna A. Offo of the federal high court in Nasarawa state issued another order setting aside the said purported elective congress and its outcome held in Gombe state on the 19th to 23rd July, 2018. It declared that, Bello Bala Shagari Muhammed and his elective members who resulted from the said purported elective congress contrary to the orders of the court

Minister of youth and sport, who made the declaration when he received the Sukubo led executives in his office, at federal Secretariat, Abuja Monday urged that youths and members of the public should support the executives as they remained the authentic as recognized

Dalung lamented that, โ€œNYCN had been bedeviled by crisis for so many years. The crisis is as a result of people who have no stake in council wanting to call the shot. This has slow down the apex youth body from achieving its set objectives.

He explained that, โ€ NYCN is a training ground for young people, but NYCN crisis in over 8 years have been an embarrassing situation and as a major stakeholders we cannot fold our hands and watch. NYCN is what we work for and the concept is selfless service.

There are opinions around, that I should not receive this executive. An election was held in Gombe and I was there. There after a competent court nullified that election, I was served and I drag my fit to see whether that order will be vacated. But that order still stand, he narrated.

Dalung also noted that, โ€œIt is on that note I decided to give validity to this executive. As a law abiding citizen, as directed by law the Sukubo led executive remains the authentic leadership of NYCN. If anybody have issues with my decision, is left for that person to go to court and challenge it. It can be appeal and challenge as far as Supreme Court.

The Minsiter who congratulated and commended the Sukubo led executive for toeing the path of law, also urged them to work hard to ensure that the council is given direction in other to achieve its set objectives.

Dalung who enjoined the youths to remain peaceful and not to allowed themselves to be use by the evil perpetrators in the society also thanked Belema Oil Company for providing 109 job offer for the youth through the collaboration of NYCN.

โ€œThe youth in Nigeria are looking for job and appeal to all the companies Iin Nigeria to follow Belema Oil gesture and engage more of our educated, skillful youths, he stated.

On his part, President NYCN, Ambassador Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo also thanked the minister for respecting the decision of a competent court of law.

He said, โ€œWe are to appreciate your support, and we thank you for obeying the court order, I assure you we will remain peaceful and law abiding.

Sukubo added that, โ€ Let me also use this opportunity to call on President Muhammadu Buhari not to forget the youth, he should appoint more the youth. We have competent youths with capacity with their skills and suggestions put an end to problems bedeviling the country.
