The youth wing of the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU) has continue to observe with sadness the manner with which the youths across all political parties and camps in the region have, in recent times, resorted to name calling and deliberately engaging in campaigns of calumny against aspirants, supporters and party faithful alike.
While the youth wing has and will continue to encourage youths to be politically active, it will however not promote political incivility, parochial and primordial political engagements as being demonstrated at the moment by our youths in the course of promoting their preferred candidates.
The youth wing is therefore calling for restrain amongst the youths as it is imperative for all youths to understand that all those who have declared interest in vying for elective positions across the region have done so with the noblest intentions and should be encouraged to stand firm in the pursuit of their aspirations.
It is also important for the youths to know that as political commentators every single individual youth is entitle to an opinion and such opinions are entitle to be respected. This is because no one individual has monopoly of opinions.
It is to this end necessary to urge the youths to exercise some degree of caution and civility as they promote their preferred candidates ahead of the forth coming elections without having to smear any other candidates.
Lastly, We are calling on the Youths to endeavor to register in the ongoing INEC online voters card registration in order to vote for their preferred candidates come 2023.
God bless Southern Kaduna
God bless Nigeria
