Some youths in Abuja, have threatened to lock down corporate organisations, if they do not respond with donations to the response against Covid-19 in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, as their counterparts in Lagos State have been doing.
The FCT Youths Task force Response Team on Covid-19, in collaboration with the National Youth Council of Nigeria, NYCN, said that they will mobilise youths from all six Area Councils, to shut down operations of companies, financial institutions, and estate developers, within the FCT, if the companies do not contact the FCT Minister with donations, before Wednesday, April 9.
The Chairman, NYCN, FCT Chapter, Ango Sulaiman, said that so many companies, estate developers, financial institutions, in Lagos, have been collaborating and contributing immensely towards the fight against Covid-19, but in the FCT, “we are yet to experience that”.
They went further to call the attention of the FCT Minister, and the Minister of State for the FCT, to call the attention of companies in the FCT, to call the attention of financial institutions in the FCT, the private and estate developers in the FCT, to do the needful before it is too late.
On his part, the Spokesperson for the FCT Natives, Yunusa Ahmadu, stated that they would go after those companies when the restrictions within the FCT is relaxed.
He said: “Take your Headquarters that you have located in the FCT, back to wherever you want to take it to. We cannot continue to harbour people who do not support the people of the FCT.”
