The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), has announced that it has mobilised over 15,000 Nigerian youths to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari from vacation.
The group said the youths would welcome the President at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport Abuja upon his arrival.
Gambo Jagindi, Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to the President of NYCN, Murtala Gamji, made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
He said, “The National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) has concluded arrangements to mobilise not less than 15,000 of its members to be at Abuja airport on Feb. 6, to welcome President Buhari from vacation.
“It is on record that integrity, discipline and honesty are gradually returning to our public life unlike in the past when impunity was the order of the day,’’ the spokesman said.
He slammed those spreading rumours of death about the President.
He said: “we all know that they do not have the interest of our country at heart and are only wishing to carry on with the looting of our treasury in the absence of our president.’’
He hailed the President’s efforts to wipe out from the nation what he described as, “undesirable elements’’ who did not mean well for Nigeria and Nigerians.
He noted that in spite of the “corrupt mafias working to undermine the anti-corruption war, Nigerian youths under NYCN would continue to support Buhari’s laudable programmes.”
