ABUJA â€” YOUTHS under the aegis, Future Nigeria Group, yesterday warned members of the Civil Society Organisations and opinion leaders to discard plans to embark on mass protest geared towards forcing President Umaru Yarâ€™Adua to formally hand overÂ power to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan.
According to the group, which was led by a former aide to President Olusegun Obasanjo, Kolade Victor Akinjo,Â at a rally in support of Yarâ€™Adua in Abuja, yesterday,Â most of those calling for the exit of Yarâ€™Adua from office are not being fair to the country, and urged the likes ofÂ former President Olusegun Obasanjo to allow their utterances to be governed by the provision of the nationâ€™s constitution and not their emotions.
In a letter entitled: â€œSymbol of our democracy should be protectedâ€ which was delivered to the National Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, when the group made a stopover at the partyâ€™s national secretariat, the group warned against throwing the nation into any form of crisis.
According to them, â€œthose masquerading under the guise of opinion leaders calling for mass actions against the system should be wary of their actions and should forthwith stop overheating the polity.
