A new executive committee has been inaugurated for the growth and development of the Ninzo Youth Apex Sociocultural Group (NPY).
This followed the dissolution of the former executive committee which had over stayed its tenure by close to three years in office, without recourse and respect for the constitution of the NPY.
The deliberate refusal by the former leadership of the body to call for congresses in the last three years in line with the constitution was what compelled members of the who have supreme powers to converge on Tattaura Village in Ninzo Chiefdom to dissolve the erstwhile exco and constitute an interim leadership with a view to organising a fresh election for the smooth administration of the youth body.
Members of the congress had repeatedly implored the outgone exco to call congresses, but the clarion appeal fell on deaf ears.
Feeling dissatisfied, the congress summoned an emergency meeting in accordance with the dictates of their constitution, a notice was immediately greeted with a counter emergency exco meeting by the former leadership in Abuja, through a circular by a fake secretary, who was appointed by the former leadership of the group.
Having sensed a looming constitutional danger, the former chairman explored other possible avenues to persuade members of to shelve their planned action as well as a possible soft landing via a proposed congress by his group, hence constituting a laughable electoral committee.
However, not satisfied with his usual antics, the congress converged on Tattaura on Saturday, October 1, 2022 and boldly dissolved and constituted an interim leadership for the group.
Those elected on the interim leadership include; Engr Ugah Anto as chairman, Mr. Stephen Ambi Secretary, Sam Audu, Treasurer, while Mr. Emmanuel Audu Kalla emerged as PRO, as well as Mr Manasseh Musa to serve as the Ex- Officio.
Meanwhile, the NPY emergency congress was peaceful with a large turnout of members from across the country.
In his inaugural speech, the interim chairman of NPY, Engr Ugah Anto thanked members for the degree of confidence reposed on him and expressed his readiness to work vigorously towards taking the group to the next level of greatness.
Engr Ugah Anto also appealed to members to close their ranks and bury their differences in the interest of peace and development of Ninzo chiefdom.
Meanwhile, members of the congress have proceeded to the palace of the Paramount Ruler of Ninzo, Alhaji Umar Musa to pay homage and to present the newly inaugurated interim executive committee for royal blessings.
