Former Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar(retd.), has warned politicians against employing youths for political violence in the forthcoming elections, adding that the country already has enough security challenges.

Abdulsalami gave this warning when he was conferred with a Honorary Doctorate Degree during the 30th Convocation Ceremony of the Federal University of Technology Minna on Wednesday.

The former head also advised youths not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to cause violence and disharmony.

He said, “As we go into politics, caution Nigerians and politicians, please wisely play the game. Avoid using our children and grandchildren as propaganda and abusing them and trying to make them do what we know is wrong.

“And for the youths, please avoid being used as thugs and arbitrators of disharmony and violence in the country.”

Abdulsalami described the security challenges the country is faced with as a war without morality where people are killed without reasons.
