A viral video making the rounds shows the moment a man named Giza was allegedly humiliated by the youths on Friday when the APC held its meager rally in Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital.
It was gathered that the youths suspected to be supporters of the party allegedly descended on the APC chieftain at the Emir Palace in Lafia over the crisis rocking the ruling party.
Reacting to the video on Friday, the Chairman of the Nasarawa Inter-party Advisory Council (IPAC), Hon. Cletus Ogah Doma condemned in totality the attack on APC Chieftain and cautioned the youth in the state against thuggery.
The IPAC Chairman said the youths should remain neutral and should not allow themselves to be used as agents in the hands of politicians because they are the vanguard of nation-building and an instrument of integration.
Ogah, who is also the Chairman of the Zenith Party in the state, condemned the molestation of Giza, describing the act as barbaric and unwholesome. He stated that Nigerians must rise against the attack on innocent citizens.
He advised the ruling APC and other political parties, residents, and other citizens to vigorously condemn thuggery and other forms of unwholesome acts that could truncate the forthcoming general elections in the country.
“The yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians to have a credible, peaceful conduct of elections in 2023, must not be allowed in the hands of the politicians causing troubles in the country.
“It is the collective responsibility of all actors and members of of all the political parties to ensure that campaigns are conducted with decorum and in accordance with the rules of the game”, the Zenith Labour party Chairman declared.
Ogah appealed to the people of the state to desist from fanning the embers of discord and violence during electioneering campaigns. This report was made possible by Vanguard News.
