Obasanjo Tells Nigerian Youth To Wrestle Power From Old Politicians

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised the youth to democratically wrest leadership from the old guards since they are unwilling to quit the stage.



To Obasanjo, leadership positions are never given on a platter of gold. He urged the youth to work for them.

He noted that moral values had been eroded, unlike in the 50s and the 60s, adding that sound moral values were necessary ingredients for leadership. He also added that Nigeria is in dire need of leaders who are academically and spiritually sound.

He urged the youth to stop complaining, “moaning and agonising”. He advised them to get ready to fit into elective offices as there were moves now to lower the age for President, Governor and National Assembly.

”I joined politics from the top. The only position I contested for is President, but I had a track record of achievements, which led to that.

”Nobody will choose you; you have to choose yourself. Why should you have to become president at the age of 40? “Why can’t you become president at the age of 35? Why can’t you become president at the age of 30?

Yinmu! Had he gotten the chance, I'm sure he would have remained there too like his friends. They keep giving advice like they have our interests at heart.

While I don't dispute what he said. He is one of the people who put us in this mess. But today while he is supposed to be behind bar, here he is preaching what he would not let happen if he were to be eligible to run for an office. The very man who seeks for third term through various crooked means and failed. It can only take time. Nigeria will surely be liberated. They can't hold us to ransom forever.

Na so, because one of his sons that got married recently wants to go 4 house of assembly, that's why he suddenly remembers that youth should come into politics abi?? & since he's the godfather of politics & his son, he stands a chance to win the seat. If ordinary me come out to vye for any political seat without any godfather backing, will I stand any chance to win??
