2023: #EndSARS protest is child’s play, Ijaw Youth President warns FG, Southern leaders
The President of the Ijaw Youth Council has warned the federal government and South-South leaders over a looming danger that may break out with respect to the 2023 Presidency.
The IYC president, Peter Igbifa who would not hide his anger while speaking during a stakeholders’ meeting in Rivers State on 19 November 2020 said the #EndSARS protest is a ‘Child’s Play’ compare to what is coming next.
Igbifa’s statement came after FG boycotted a stakeholders’ meeting earlier organized to look into rising security issues within Niger Delta communities.
He fumed at the display by the presidency described it as an ‘insult’ on the leaders from the Southern region “enough is enough”.
He threatened that the economy of the country would be in shambles in few days if youths of Niger Delta are pushed into the streets again.
Though, he lamented betrayal from the side of Southern leaders too to had given ‘Cambari’ (North) so much leverage to be taking people of the region for granted despite most of them being ‘product of struggle ‘.
The IYC President noted though he knew the meeting would not hold as planned because everything about Niger Delta/South-South is a joke. After all, even the ministers from the region were not present.
He further remarked that the sons and daughters working with President Mohammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa are playing politics with them ahead of the 2023 election.
He warned keenly the governors and politicians present in the meeting to stop the play with Buhari as against their wellbeing.
Similarly, IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu had earlier warned that the next wave of the end SARS movement will be destructive and those that would not stand it should steer clear.
Kanu expressed bitterness over the continued seizure of bank accounts, arrest and torture of youths.
