“As we revealed, when they first began their empty noise, they represent nothing but fraud. They are constantly searching for avenues to get close to unsuspecting members, especially successful members of the political class.
“We warned, that the Dynamic Youth Organisation is an association of con-artistes, who seek out foolish and desperate politicians who they market falsehood and unattainable projects to. We warned politicians, especially from Anambra state, to be wary of this fraudulent gang.
“Why are they secretly seeking audience with Senator Andy Uba after making empty noise that they were recalling him from the Senate? What is stopping them from recalling the senator? Do they want the senator’s permission to recall him? Or have their paymasters taken our advice and discovered their fraud? Did they imagine that empty threats issued by fraudsters can elicit any kind of attention from the senator?
“The senator is focused for good representation and had never and does not intend to be distracted by a bunch of disgruntled elements, who have sunk so low to become extortionists, false alarmists and public enemies,” the statement said.
The statement asked the public to be wary of the group, adding that they represent nothing but the usual face of common criminals and delinquents always hired by unscrupulous and failed politicians.
“They have no ethics or beliefs and therefore do not represent any moral value or political inclination. As con-artistes, they obtain by false pretenses.
“They hold themselves out to be what they are not, all in the attempt of making money by exploiting the naivety of failed and desperate political office seekers,
The Dynamic Youth Organization should be treated for what they are, only good to be thrashed in the next available dust-bin,” the statement added.
Senator Uba has since kick-started his sensitization tour to various local government areas in Anambra state.
The APC gubernatorial candidate is one of the leading aspirants aspiring to unseat incumbent, Chief Willie Obiano of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
