2023: Abdulsalami Warns Politicians To Desist From Using Youths As Thugs


In preparation for the 2023 general elections, a former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.), has reportedly warned politicians against using youths as thugs.

Abdulsalami reportedly made this known when he was conferred with an Honorary Doctorate Degree during the 30th convocation of the Federal University of Technology, Minna on Wednesday.

 According to him, “As we go into politics, caution Nigerians and politicians, please play the game wisely. Avoid using our children and grandchildren as propaganda and abusing them and trying to make them do what we know is wrong.”

He noted, “And for the youth, please avoid being used as thugs and arbitrators of disharmony and violence in the country.”

 He maintained, “We are facing a hard time security-wise where the warfront is everywhere and this is a war without any morality where the old and the young are slaughtered without any cause.”

He added, “Our security forces are overstretched. So, it is left to all of us to join hands in making sure we provide information where possible so that this situation will be addressed.”
