The umbrella organisation for South-West youths, Progressive Yoruba Youth Congress (PYYC), has hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for “strengthening the Judiciary as evident in the series of groundbreaking election tribunal judgements.”
In a press conference held in Lagos on Thursday and statement signed by President, Kola Salawu, the group said the Judicial arm has become more independent, fearless and corruption-free unlike ages past.
According to PYYC, “the era of the procurement of judgments in the Judiciary has been replaced with the delivering of free, fair, and credible judgments that can stand the test of time in the annals of the country”.
The group placed emphasis on the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal which upheld President Buhari’s victory at the last polls despite “propaganda” and cheap blackmail by the opposition.
The Yoruba youths also applauded the President for the peace and tranquillity enjoyed across the country in the last 100 days – a sign of what to come in the next four years.
There was also massive adulation for Mr Buhari, who according to the group, chose the most capable hands to steer the country affairs in the next four years.
The Progressive Yoruba Youth, however, urged Nigerians, irrespective of political affiliations, to support the president to achieve more.
