A northern youth group, the Arewa Youth Parliament, has urged Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State to halt what the group described as unguarded utterances and media attack on the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Insisting that the attacks are unacceptable, the group noted that the current mood of the nation dictates that all Nigerians move away from unprogressive lamentations and hauling of unfounded allegations.
According to the group in a statement in Kaduna, Friday, August 28, 2014 signed by its chairman, Ibrahim Garba Rigachikun and secretary general, Faith Joshua, “we believe that the season of propaganda ended after May 29, 2015 and what matters most now is the development of infrastructure across the country for the overall good of all Nigerians.
“We are aware that Governor Oshiomhole is not the official spokesman of the APC Federal Government and should allow those who it is their duty to do their job.
“We also advise him to switch from the campaign propaganda mode and emergency radicalism to do the needful for the people of Edo state. The Governor has apparently abandoned the task of overseeing affairs of Edo state to become an emergency critic of Dr. Jonathan who is supposed to be peacefully resting after serving the nation to the best of his ability.
“The Governor’s media propaganda against the former President is uncalled for and unsuitable in this cooling off period when Nigerians expect a string of developmental projects as promised them by his party during the 2015 electioneering campaigns.”
