1.

3. That, consequent upon the fact that the Chairman of Obudu Local Government Area acted impulsively by proscribing NYCN Obudu Chapter without any due process or consultation, we hereby state categorically that the Chairman of Obudu lacks the constitutional right to proscribe the Youth Council as the Youth Council was established by an act of National Assembly Parliament, hence only the National Assembly body has the constitutional right to proscribe or disband NYCN.

4. While we understand the need for peace and tranquility in Obudu, the State executive council of NYCN is ready to work synergistically with the Chairman of Obudu Local Government Area to bring the perpetrators to book.

Build the Youth!
Build the Nation!
