Igbo Youths under the aegis of The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, have disclosed they are currently compiling a list of courrupt governors in the region.
The youths vowed to ensure that any governor who embezzled public fund is not allowed to occupy any political office in the forthcoming general elections.
In a statement issued by the President-General of COSEYL, Goodluck Ibem,
the coalition called on all citizens of the region to join hands in ensuring that no corrupt person is allowed to hold any political office come 2023.
According to the statement: “As youth leaders of the zone mandated by our people to defend their interest at all times, we have decided to expose all corrupt governors for probe to the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, ICPC and other relevant authorities saddled with the responsibility of scrutinizing public office holders.
“We are investigating our governors and any of them found wanting will not be elected or permitted to hold any other political office in the coming election. Ndigbo cannot afford to make another mistake of presenting corrupt persons for any political office again in 2023.
“We call on our people to rise up and defend our commonwealth from being embezzled and taken away by those we elected to protect our interests. The time to act is now”.
