A civil society group, Civil Society Youth Coalition, has noted that the country’s current security and other challenges were not peculiar to Nigeria.
According to the group’s position which was contained in a press statement issued by its national president, Aminu Aminu, “Nigeria and other countries have had their fair share of challenges, but we thank God that we still have a nation we call our own.”
The statement read in part, “The civil society youth coalition also observes with anger a proposed rally bing heavily mobilised by unpatriotic citizens for President Muhammadu Buhari must go and to sack the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Malam Isah Pantami. We are of the opinion that such a political misadventure is meant to distract the planned activities for this year’s Democracy Day, but this will be resisted by Nigerians.
“Nigeria youth and civil societies alike disassociate from this act and will report any negative or subversive action to the constituted authorities for necessary action.
“We appeal to the media to join us in this four-day national peace and unity rally to celebrate our democracy which we see as a journey and not a destination.’ doing that will make Nigeria peaceful and united to face our challenges.”
