Obasanjo Begs Youths ''You still need me, don’t wish me dead''

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, on Sunday advised Nigerian youths against wishing him and other elder statesmen dead.



He gave the advice while speaking at the youth governance dialogue held by the Youth Development Centre of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun state.


Obasanjo, who described the current agitations across the country as an expression of frustration, admonished youths not to lose hope.

According to Obasanjo,“Don’t wish us dead; don’t wish us to disappear because you will need us. You need us to mentor and prepare you for the future. You need our experience and assistance of some of us to guide you through life.



“You should not lose hope, you should not feel frustrated. Whenever I go abroad, they always ask me what my fear about Nigeria and Africa is, and I tell them my greatest fear is youth anger, frustrations and youth explosion which have no bound.



“We have the Boko Haram in the north, the MASSOB and IPOB in the south-east, the militants in the Niger Delta and the Oodua Peoples Congress in the south-west. All of these are the expression of anger and frustrations.”

Thank you Baba for your services to the nation. The Youth will have to learn from any mistakes they make. Nigeria has a history of 'recycling' leaders who come in various guises (military and civilian), and this has been the problem. Neither you Baba, nor your ilks have done Nigeria any good, but you all tend to leave office very comfortable and well off.
With respect, the youths have nothing to gain from you "elder statesmen", afterall we are trying to rid the country of corruption.

"You need us to mentor and prepare you for the future". What effing future is this old man talking about? Where the hell is this future or when shall the future be? This is the reason we don't need you and your co-travellers because as long as you remain alive and in circulation, we will only talk about but not get to this future.
Oga fade and go joor.
