Youth under the aegis of Northern Youth Assembly yesterday blamed the present challenges bedeviling the country on past leaders that Nigeria has never been subjected to an ugly damage than the 16 years PDP held power, out of which former President Olusegun Obasanjo led for 8 years.
In a press release titled; Unmasking the Forces behind Toxic Polarisation of the Nation’s politics which was signed by its National Assistant Publicity Secretary, Comrade Mohammed Hussani Bauchi, they said “looking at previous and recent happenings in Nigeria, one can confidently state that Nigerian leaders have made a mess of our dear country since independence”.
That while most of the previous administrations both democratic and military have played a role in creating the problems bedeviling us today this country has never been subjected to an ugly damage than the 16 years PDP held power, out of which former President Olusegun Obasanjo led for 8 years.
The statement read in part ” Obasanjo blatantly created and nurtured some of these national problems plaguing Nigeria to an overwhelming limits with successive administrations feeling the heat of the synthetic problems.
The intention and plan by former president Obasanjo to organize some civil society and other critics of Buhari administration to form a coalition that will mount additional pressure on already fragile state of politics and insecurity in Nigeria is not new, as he has done same with many previous administrations.
Such apparent wickedness and evil intentions to this country is known to many. Obasanjo known to most Nigerians is a thoroughly self- centred leader that only sees fault in previous and every subsequent leader except for those serving his personal interest. His performance record and corrupt precedents has for long denied him any inviolability to speak from moral prism on the present happenings in the country”, it added.

That It is their belief that, only an open fair play and honesty of our attention as citizens that could help to consolidate the efforts of building a united, prosperous and a promising Nigeria.
He further emphasized that It is one of the cardinal principle of the NYA (Northern Youth Assembly) to support every undertakings aimed at promoting peace, national unity as well as peaceful co –existence in the country.

“Nigeria belongs to us all, and we should not allow them to dictate our thinking or how we should respond to some of our unfortunate situations which they deliberately created for us” he warned.
