Ugochinyere Michael.

The President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, Barrister Ugochinyere, Michael has resigned from his exulted position to pave way for a new person to lead the council as he takes fully, his proper place in the political sphere in Nigeria, as Spokesperson of the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP, the umbrella body of opposition parties in Nigeria.


According to him, “Following my deep involvement in opposition politics during my leave from the Youth Council particularly as the spokesperson of the Nigerian opposition, the Coalition of United Political Parties, CUPP and as the National Chairman of Action Peoples Party, APP, I have come to the informed conclusion that I may not be in the best position to be totally neutral to lead Nigerian youths as president of the National Youth Council of Nigeria.

“My long absence and foray into opposition politics has created a huge vacuum that has led to the emergence of factional leaders and splinter groups who are destroying the unity of the council, adding that, “I have also consulted with my family, friends and associates and I believe it is going to be a disservice to the National Youth Council of Nigeria to be in a position where my personal political interests and affiliations will conflict with the common interest of the generality of Nigerian youths.”

“It is based on the foregoing that I hereby serve on you the notice of my resignation from office as the President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria effective immediately a successor who will emerge from the upcoming unity Congress in the coming days is sworn in.”

Ugochinyere Michael is also the National Chairman of Action Peoples Party, APP.
