Why The Young Never Grow in Nigeria.
**You are the Leaders of Tomorrow!
They enjoyed their own youth and our own time, they deny us the opportunity to be a leader or even taking positions of responsibility.
**ACN Chairman: Chief Bisi Akande (73) was deputy governor, later governor of the old Oyo State (Osun and Oyo) 33 years ago.
**CPC Leader: Maj Gen Mohammadu Buhari (70) was Nigerian Military Head of State, 29 years ago.
**PDP Chairman: Dr. Bamanga Tukur (77) was the Governor, Old Gongola State (Adamawa & Taraba) 33 years ago.
Yakubu Gowon was only 32 years when he was the Head of state of Nigeria.
Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu was 33 years when he was Governor of Eastern Nigeria.
Today, at 30s, Nigerian youths are still taking JAMB Examination, not to mention that majority of Nigerians are still begging to apply for jobs that are not there, even when they are ‘hitting’ close to 50 years.
These men that enjoyed the best of Nigeria are today depriving us of leadership apprenticeship and positions as they continued to hold offices tight to their chest.
The even brainwashed most us to see them as mini-gods, expect us to kill or abuse anyone that do not support their aspiration or political views.
Our Future means nothing to them, as the best is meant for their children and grandchildren, while we roam the streets with cap in hand.
The question is, when will Nigerian youths wake up from their shocking sleep?
Lastly my other question to these our Elders who has sworn that the young ones will never take over the running of our the Nation’s affairs, is, when will our own leadership for Tomorrow, start? – Aliyu Bello, Oxfordshire.
