Nkanu Youths condemn Okey Ezea over “Do-or-Die Affair” Statement, Call Nsukka zone to Respect the zoning Pact | CABLE REPORTERS


The Nkanu Youths, led by Hon. Edeani M. Edeani, JP. have taken a strong stance against the inciting words of Senator-elect of Enugu North Senatorial zone Sen. Okey Ezea, warning him not to instigate violence between Nsukka and Nkanu youths. The youths stressed the importance of maintaining a cordial relationship between the two zones, as they have always had in the past.

Hon. Edeani emphasized that election is not a do-or-die affair. He called on all politicians to avoid using hate speech and to refrain from inciting violence, as this only serves to create tension and unrest. Instead, he urged all parties to focus on issue based campaigns, promotion of peace and unity in their regions, which will ultimately lead to the development of the State.

“I call on Nsukka Youths to be careful not to be used as pawns by desperate politicians who will keep their children at home but be out to incite other youths to their deaths. Please avoid being swayed by political rhetoric that may lead to violence or other forms of conflict”. Hon. Edeani

Furthermore, the Nkanu Youths expressed disappointment in the silence of the Nsukka Youths led by Roy Ekwueme over the issue. They noted that it is important for all stakeholders in the region to rebute such provocative statements capable of causing ethnic crises . “Nkanu Youths and Nkanu land have supported Enugu West zone for complete 8 years, we have also supported Nsukka zone through Ugwuanyi for another 8 years which is a complete 16 years, and it's only noble for Nsukka zone to accord Nkanu the needed support by voting our candidate, Dr. Peter Mbah of the PDP, any other votes aside this is capable of destroying the zoning pact which will expose the state to needless tensions and violence” Hon. Edeani added

Nkanu Youths also reiterated their commitment to promoting peace and harmony in the Enugu state. They also called on all stakeholders to work together towards achieving this goal and to avoid any actions that may lead to violence or division.
