The National Youth Leader of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Dayo Israel have come under heavy criticism for exposing a letter addressed to him by the former Abia State Governor, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
The Senate Chief Whip had few days ago addressed a letter to Mr Israel, other members of the APC National Working Committee, NWC, and 108 Senators who are also, members of the party, informing them of his intention to contest for the office of the Senate President.
However, Dayo Israel, in a Facebook post, made fun of a letter written by Senator Kalu which was addressed to his office as the Party’s National Youth Leader.
In what can be tagged as a mockery of the letter and its sender, following the decision of the NWC, which zoned the Senate president position to South-south, the Youth Leader posted a copy of the letter on his Facebook attached with laughter emojis as he made jest of the His Excellency “H.E” which was used in addressing him in the letter.
Israel also warned that he must he addressed as such henceforth.
He wrote; “I like the HE on this letter 😘🥰😍😘! Make una dey call me HE now 😃😆😀😃😄😁. If I hear Dayo, I no go answer, if I hear Youth Leader, I go pause make you complete am – HE The National Youth Leader 👊👊👊👊 or just HE 🤛🤛🤛🤛🤛.
Taking to the comment section many social media users condemned the act describing it as insensitive and childish. While some expressed their disappointment in the party youth leader urging him to take down the post and apologise.
Recall that the South-East Senate caucus had advised the President-elect Mr. Bola Tinubu to be conscious of the grave implications of zoning and endorsing a candidate for the position of Senate President from the South-South without any regard for the Southeast as such move will no doubt serve as a recipe for Injustice which will culminate to restiveness.
Top contenders from South-East are Senator Osita Izunaso and current Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.

Otupu Olufemi Ayodele said; “This letter is not meant for the public, but for your office. The problem we are trying to correct in the civil service is what you are displaying. Certain official matters must be discreet. This was sent to you in good faith, but you betrayed his trust.
“This is Childishness” Abeegunde Omoigbaye simply said.
