November 21, (THEWILL) – The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders (COSEYL) on Monday, threatened to dump refuse at the entrance gate of the Anambra State Government House on November 25, 2022.
The action, according to the youths, would serve as a deterrent to others, who may attempt to disparage Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).
THEWILL recalls that Governor Charles Soludo had in a recent article titled: “History Beckons and I Will Not Be Silent (Part 1)”, attacked Obi’s presidential bid.
Soludo, who argued that Obi would be defeated in next year’s election, had advised Ndigbo to bargain with the presidential candidates of the two leading political parties, the APC and PDP.
Reacting to Soludo’s article, the Youths in a statement issued on Monday, by Goodluck Ibem, the President General of the Coalition, said, “COSEYL, the apex socio-political youth group in the South East geopolitical zone after a meeting of her members over the unfortunate and unguided statement by the Anambra State Governor, Prof. Charles Soludo, over Mr. Peter Obi’s presidential ambition have decided to bring him back to his senses.
“We are declaring Friday 25 November, 2022 as a day when all Anambrians will carry their refuse, debris and dump them at the gate of Anambra State Government House to serve as deterrent to other Igbo political office holders who might want to insult the sensibility of the Igbo nation.
“Dumping of refuse in the house of anyone who committed sacrilege against his people is a traditional way of disciplining and teaching lessons to anyone found wanting.
“The Igbo nation is a big and blessed nation that should not be toiled with by one single individual. That Soludo is the governor of Anambra State today is not of his making but is the making of God using Anambra people to vote him into office.
“The statement of Soludo and the audacity with which he spoke against Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party Presidential candidate portrayed him as a man who felt that he is above God and Anambra people who elected him as governor.
“Without mincing words, Soludo insulted the sensibility of Anambra State and the entire Igbo nation by his misguided statement against Mr. Peter Obi. Soludo just confirmed to the world that he lacks common sense.
“It is very unfortunate that Anambrians elected a misfit with the title of a Professor as governor and the error has to be corrected immediately by Anambra State House of Assembly members by impeaching Governor Charles Soludo immediately. Anambra is too blessed to have such a character as governor.
“Four years is too long to wait for a man who has no vision to lead the good people of Anambra State that have enough intelligent people both home and abroad. It will be an Insult to Ndi Anambra to wait for 4 years for Soludo to complete his tenure which was given to him by the people”, Ibem stated.
The group, therefore, call on the entire members of the Anambra State House of Assembly to “immediately start the process of Soludo’s impeachment process in other to save Anambra people of this national embarrassment by a supposed Professor.”
