Six members of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) have apologized to its President Ambassador Sukubo Sara-Igbe Sukubo over false accusation and defamation of character.

The apology letter signed by the six NEC members was made available to newsmen in Abuja on Tuesday.

The NEC members who signed the apology letter are Smart Uwakwe, Vice President, South East, Izunna Izuocha, Assistant Secretary, South East, Clinton Avwoke, National Auditor, Ibrahim Dangata, Assistant Secretary, North East, Aminu Babale, National Financial Secretary and Bashir Garba, National Legal Adviser.

The other officials accused of alleged wrongdoings alongside the President are comrades Innocent Nduanya, Suleiman Abutu and Nnamdi Ezemagu.

The allegations have been published in many national news outlets, online publications and WhatsApp groups among others.

According to the statement, the six NEC members have also resolved to embrace peace and work in one accord with the leadership of Ambassador Sukubo as the President.

They noted that all other actions taken during the crisis and all letter(s) written to government agencies, as well the private sector, should be disregarded in totality forthwith and passed a vote of confidence on the President.

Accordingly, they noted that they do not support any further efforts to divide the NYCN and pledged their commitments to the peace, unity and progress of the Council under the leadership of Ambassador Sukubo.

They also appreciated the timely intervention of elders and stakeholders to restore sanity in the Council.

Some of the allegations published in one of the national dailies, the six NEC members alleged that Sukubo was engaging in “numerous self-serving activities in the name of the Council”, “on numerous occasions unilaterally picked and sent certain members of the NEC to represent the Council in national and international programmes without consulting or obtaining the approvals of the NEC and its members from such states, thereby undermining the decision-making process of the NEC and the Council,” and “intruded/interfered unlawfully into the affairs of other members of the NEC and some state chapters of the Council without the approval of the Vice Presidents of the Zones and the NEC, which has caused so much disarray and disruption within the Council” among others.
