Some youths of in Kwara state have risen in defence of the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Lai Mohammed for issuing a statement rejecting the emergence of Senator Bukola Saraki as Senate President.
The Youths under the aegis of Oro Kingdom Youth Forum lampooned those attacking Mohammed for doing his job.
It would be recalled that some APC and Saraki loyalists in the state had harangued the APC spokesman who hails from the same state with Saraki, a former governor of the state.
The APC National Chairman, Chief John Oyegun had equally defended Lai Mohammed, saying he issued the statement with the consent of the party’s leadership.
The youths who are Mohammed’s kinsmen passed a vote of confidence on him even as they criticised the statement credited to some Oro elders, saying their attack on Lai Mohammed was “harsh and barbaric”.
A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the group, Comrade Mustapha Akoshile which was made available to Daily Trust on Saturday stressed that Mohammed was merely doing his job and should not be vilified.
The youths described Mohammed as “a voice of the voiceless, truly democrat and a high ranking modern political gladiator in Nigeria.
They therefore, called on the author of the statement attacking Lai Mohammed to withdraw it and apologize to the people of Oro Kingdom for allegedly disrespecting the APC spokesman.
The group advised the Senate President “to always pocket his pride and remain loyal to the party.
