In response to the recent and ever increasing killings, and destruction of businesses owned by Nigerians in South Africa, the President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Comrade Oladele Nihi has issued a four day ultimatum for the government of South Africa and her embassy in Nigeria to react and bring to halt, persecutions of Nigerians living in the country.
The apex youth body; which also serves as the umbrella body for all youth groups in the country has made known their stand in a statement signed by Kelvin Eleta, stating that the group is more than ready to launch a repel movement against businesses owned by South Africans and against all South Africans resident in Nigeria.
However, in a bid to make room for peace and harmony, the leadership of NYCN has “extended a grace period of four day ultimatum for the government of South African and the embassy of South Africa in Nigeria, to put heads together and lay the matter to rest. Failure to do so, the apex youth body; which is in control of over 70 million Nigerian youths, is more than ready to embark on a nationwide protest. We are ready to march against South Africans and their businesses in Nigeria, without any further delay.
“The recent killings and destruction of properties owned by Nigerians by South Africans is not acceptable and the youths are not going to fold their arms and do nothing about it. Every chapter of NYCN in all States and Local Government Areas in the country, are on standby for a signal from their President, Amb. Oladele John Nihi, who is in control of the affairs of all youth bodies in the country.
“We hope that the government of South Africa and her embassy, acts without delay in order to avert what is to befall every South Africans and their businesses in the Nigeria,” he said.
