In a bold display of unity and determination, Nigerian youths from the North Central region, operating under the banner of The North Central Progressive Voice, converged in Lafia, the capital of Nasarawa State, to voice their grievances against what they perceive as an abuse of the rule of law by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). The group, which includes both youths and women representing various communities across the North Central states, called for immediate intervention from President Bola Tinubu concerning the recent actions of the EFCC towards former Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello and other individuals.
