In advance of the 2023 election, Ifedayo Akindoju, president of the Abuja Country Club, has issued a stern warning to the youth of Nigeria.
Akindoju cautioned the young people against acting as thugs for politicians who wanted to stir up trouble during the elections.
Speaking at a public event in Abuja to commemorate Nigeria’s 62nd anniversary of independence, he issued this warning.
