Udu Youth Council (UYC), the umbrella body of all youths in Udu kingdom led by Comrade Otito Yembra Tegolor, has condemned in strong terms, the destruction of billboards, posters and banners carrying Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates in Udu local government area.
The president, who made this known recently, during UYC executive meeting, lamented that the manner with which some Udu youths had turned themselves to billboards and posters’ destructors instead of campaigning for their choice candidates called for a serious caution.
He called on Udu youths to be law abiding citizen and peaceful ambassadors instead of fomenting trouble.
According to him: “If you go through Aladja down to Otor-Udu, to Udu road through Orhuwhorun road to Orhuwhorun main town, you will notice that only PDP billboards, banners and posters are being destroyed while other political parties billboards, banners and posters are intact in same location where PDP billboards are being vandalized.”
The group called on the Department of State Security (DSS) and Nigeria Police to investigate the issue and ensure that all those involved were brought to book.
He further called on all candidates and political party chairmen to call their supporters to order to avoid insecurity and youth restiveness in the area.
