ABUJA—The newly elected executive members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, have commended President Goodluck Jonathan for upholding mandate of his election by sacking Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir as Minister of Youth Development.
President of NYCN, Comrade Abdullahi Abdulmajeed, spoke at the official presentation of the new leadership of NYCN in Abuja.
He said: “The entire Nigerian youths can never thank President Goodluck Jonathan enough for upholding the trust and mandate that was given to him by the Nigerian youths through the ballot box. The President has demonstrated clear-headed leadership by sacking the former minister for Youth Development after finding out the truth that surrounded the NYCN crisis.”
It will be recalled that Alhaji Abdulkadir was sacked by the President for allegedly influencing the election of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, in Makurdi, Benue State, in his favour.
