The Biafra Nations Youth League, BNYL has appealed to the people of the Southeast and Southsouth regions to be mindful of politicians and campaign promises.
This was in reaction to recent launch of Political campaigns in Southeast by President Mohammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.
The National Leader of BNYL, Princewill Chimezie Richard, in a statement to DAILY POST on Friday, advised the people not to “allow themselves to be used as political tools to kill people for selfish interests.”
BNYL also lambasted apex Igbo socio-cultural organization, Ohanaeze Ndigbo for turning into a political group.
Ohanaeze Ndigbo endorsed Atiku on Thursday during a meeting of Imeobi, the highest decision making body of Ohanaeze.
Ohanaeze endorsed Atiku whom they believed has restructuring agenda.
But BNYL said that “Ohanaeze aught not to have involved in politics,” adding that it endorsed a wrong candidate that doesn’t have Igbo interest.
The group added, “We detest northerner politicians, after this election our people will totally be forgotten for another four years, and it goes like that.
“We are wiser now. None of our people should fight for Buhari when he loses or fight for Atiku when Buhari wins. We will not tolerate it”
