The Zonal Coordinator, South-South Youth Wing of Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide, Mr Chinedu Arthur-Ugwa, has advised government at all levels to respect the sanctity of Nigeria’s institutions such as the judiciary by obeying court orders rather than seeking to thwart them.
Arthur-Ugwa gave the advice in a release which he signed and made available to newsmen in Owerri on Thursday.
This, he said, would help restore the confidence of Nigerians in the country uphold the sanctity of the judiciary and give the country pride of place in the comity of nations.
” Nigerians are not fools. Flagrant disregard for the sanctity of the Nation’s judiciary through disobedience to court orders can heat up the polity.
The Ohanaeze youth leader who frowned at the use of social media to spread divisive content called on Nigerians, especially politicians and youth leaders to unite the country through their speech, rather than divide it.
He warned that any drift from issue-based campaigns in the buildup to the 2023 general elections could spell doom for the country.
He called on those in positions of authority to realize the power of their words and use their positions to unite rather than attack sections of the country.
” Nigeria’s unity remains more important than ethnic or religious leanings and our political leaders must come to terms with this.
” No reasonable person will encourage crisis in any form, either through the use of social media or through divisive, inciting words, as Nigeria’s unity is already fragile enough.
” As the elections approach, we must desist from all manner of inciting utterances. History will only be fair to us if we learn from it,” he said.
