The Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi, has admonished youths of the state against indulging in politics, telling them to be successful first.
The governor gave this directive on Wednesday during an Ebonyi State #EndSARS Summit hosted by the state government in Abakaliki.
Umahi said, “Remove your minds from politics and succeed first. Those who are manipulating politics are the wealthy men and women.
“I hear the government should provide jobs. Let us even say jobs are provided, N30, 000 minimum wages. In one year, it is N360, 000. What are you doing with that?”
“You can only give what you have. Some of you run after the politicians, some of them never went to school. Some of them have nothing to offer, they brainwash you.
“You become their thugs, their families are overseas. It is our own, what are you doing at a party? A party you know in Ebonyi State is me,” he added.
The event brought together youths from the 13 local government areas served as an avenue to inculcate right values that aim to make them better citizens.
