The Young Leadership Association of Nigeria, YLAN, has called on the parents and guardians in the Southeast to return their children to school.
This, as the group called on the National Orientation Agency, to take up its work in uniting the every part of the country.
The YLAN’s call came on the heels of recent tension in the southeastern part of the country, caused by the presence of the military following a free medical outreach by the army in line with the exercise Python Dance II.
It will be recalled that the men of the Nigerian military were recently on a medical outreach in the eastern part of the country, a charity which was later tagged as a devious means of depopulating the region.
However, in a statement by YLAN National Secretary, the group urged the National Orientation of Nigeria to take up its responsibility of reorienting the people, making them have confidence as part of the country.
The statement reads;
The attention of Young Leadership Association of Nigeria YLAN has been attracted to the rumours making round on the federal government of Nigeria’s attempt to depopulate the southeast through the on going medical outreach by 83 Division of the Nigerian Army in some schools in the southeast.
In our course of investigation, we have found out that the Nigerian Army is carrying out its social responsibility with free medical services in Anambra State.
Meanwhile, people have been captured by strong premonition which has led to the withdrawal of students from schools by parents as they believe the free medical service to be a very devious move which is geared towards injecting killer diseases in students to exterminate people in the region.
YLAN wants to urge the general public especially the people in the southeast of the country to disregard such unverified piece of information and return their children to school. We equally advise them to be peaceful and lawful.
This is high time the people understood how desperate some individuals are in promoting disorderliness,disruption of tranquility as well as aggravating the level of anxiety in the southeast to achieve their aim of causing disunity in Nigeria.
People should cease from initiating distrustfulness of government in the people with the help of the social media as it will not only cause anarchy but also inhibit our nation’s progress.
Young Leadership Association of Nigeria YLAN is also calling on the federal government of Nigeria together with the Nigerian Armed forces to show high level of respect for Human Rights in discharge of their duties as this occurrence is a clear demonstration of lose of confidence in them by the people.
Government should understand that it’s their duty to build trust in the people and they have to start working on it now. For this reason, the National Orientation Agency should stop sleeping and has to realize the importance of giving our citizens sound orientation that will make them to be part of the government so as to stop them from repudiating government’s policies even when they are designed for their benefit.
