Orlu youth group chides political elite

A youth group, saying it is a non-political and cultural union of Orlu people in Imo State, known as ‘Orlu Zurumee Youths’ has expressed regret over alleged “lacklustre” attitude of Orlu political leaders to fight insecurity and destruction of valuable properties in the area.
The youths blamed the killings and destruction of valuable properties belonging to innocent people of the Orlu zone on the suspected lukewarm attitude of the political leaders of the zone.
Orlu Zurumee Youths said all efforts made to talk the political bigwigs of Orlu zone into taking action in the fight against insecurity ravaging the zone, proved abortive.
In a communique signed by secretary-general of the organization Mr. Desmond Ugwumba, and made available to the media, the youths vowed to throw their weight behind the right candidate in the forthcoming governorship election in Imo State, to ensure that insecurity is tackled.
The communique reads in part: “The high level of unemployment in Orlu zone is alarming and we honestly want political leaders and captains of Industries that would assist the youths to earn a living by providing and creating an enabling environment for entrepreneurs among youths to thrive”, the communique noted.
The youths organization emphasized that the insecurity bedeviling the Orlu zone and other parts of the state can be stopped if the political bigwigs in the zone come together and take action.
The youths also called on Imolites to look beyond selfish interest and vote for a person with the capacity to lead Imo to that promised land in the forthcoming election.
