Part of the letter said that âthe multiple submissions received by our leaders after our petition to your Commission dated October 7, 2021.
“We have discovered that our dear organizations as the voices of the voiceless youth of northern Nigeria are about to be unwittingly used to wage a political battle that falls far short of the purpose and core value of the council. , a lot of interest ranging from politics and others has been discovered recently to be the power behind the scenes to send reports and pretend to use our dear organization to fight Senator Jubrin, which we consider to be an act contrary to ethical and deliberate to use our dear organizations to wage a political fight with the senator.
âWe have acted on the basis of the reports submitted to our secretariat with the intention that they are of real concern, but the event then proved otherwise, hence our determination to move away from the murky waters of politics. “
