…Party’s Silence Promoting APC’s Alleged Plot for One Party State, Says Northern Youth

James Sowole in Abeokuta

Youths under the aegis of Northern Youth Leaders Forum (NYLF), has said the silence of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on issues in the country was beginning to promote the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC’s) alleged plot to turn Nigeria into a one party state.

Specifically, the youth knocked the National Chairman of the PDP, Ambassador Ilya Umar Damagun, for allegedly helping in the ugly of  the ruling party.
The NYFL said rather than the party under the leadership of Damagun, to play opposition roles and give constructive criticisms, it has been on a deliberate and manipulated sabbatical silence.

The group disclosed its position at a news conference addressed in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
Addressing journalists,  the National President of the Forum, Afiyo Elliot, observed that the ruling party has been working against the very existence of Nigeria’s democratic principles to lead the country into a one-party state so as to institutionalise, secure authoritarian and dictatorial system in the country.
He said despite the introduction of unfriendly policies by the incumbent administration in the country, a word of criticism has never come from the supposed main opposition party.
