My resignation may come as a surprise to many, but there are always times when we have to make sacrifices and think beyond our personal ambitions or possessions in the overall interest of everyone. It is a decision that I am happy to make.
As may be recalled, my EXCO and I were elected in a congress supervised by the Federal Ministry for Youth & Sports Development in 2018. Controversies surrounding the leadership started the day I won my elections; which I did against all odds.
However, we stood against the treachery, betrayal, mischief and intimidation of many who then thought they can do as they want with the Organisation; those whose greed and smartness has done nothing but displaced them in the arena. We succeeded in undermining their conning imagination and we survived until we-on our own, decided that it is time to move on for peace that could not have come without our cooperation and a necessary reform which is long over due to pave a smoother way for our younger once.
At this juncture, I would like to specially thank my brother and leader, Comrade Lamir Amin, who was the first person to put me on this path, all the comrades who have struggled with me in Gombe, the likes of Comrade Tj, Biggie, Bawan Allah, Gorau etc, and senior Comrades who have come from others states like Hon Murtala Jega, Kabir Ado Lakwaya, Adamu Bauchi, Yusuf Tom, Abubakar Barde, Comr Muregi,Yemi Success, my Snr Advisor Chief Nengi James and many others, the loyal Chairmen especially Comr Umar Lauya of Bauchi and indeed many of you who have supported me here on Facebook as led by Mukhtar Getso and Abdullahi Salisu. I shall always be grateful for your support.
The credit for our survival must be given to Allah (SWA) who in His infinite wisdom has created the “Advanced Team” aka integrity team who have stood with me even when I have no kobo to give them and shunned every attempt to lure them into any form of corruption. They have been true to me and the struggle, and I’ll always be proud to associate with them. Our struggle was true, and to verify, you can do this simple maths; we fought against all negative elements within us, both APC and PDP, and the Government itself.
Members of the Advanced Team are as follows: Hon. Lukman Majidadi (VP NorthWest, Sele Sean Pwajok (VP North Central), Suhail Abubakar (VP North East), Agwuncha Izunna(Org Sec South East), Muhammed Yerima ( Org Sec North Central),Clinton Avwoke (Org Sec South South), Adamu Yunusa (Org Sec North East), Mukhtar Jebba (Org Sec HQ), Melah Ibrahim (Chief of Staff) and Alex Okwudili (CSO). One other person I’ll always hold with special regards and utmost respect is Kingsley Mbanuchuka(VP South South)
I am faithful, that Allah have something better in store for us, after serving diligently and honorably for almost two years. The Youth Council may be over for us, but the advanced team is a family which is just getting started.
Aluta Continua, Victoria Ascerta!
