Ex Nigeria President, Olusegun Obasanjo has come out to warn Nigerian youths against allowing politicians who mess up with their future to lead them again.

He recently had his say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he can only urge youths to engage in activities that would change the African narrative by participating fully in all the socio-economic and political activities.

He added that such participation would also guarantee a better future for the young generation as it would not allow those who are messing up their future to succeed.

His words, “In most parts of Africa, there are visible barriers and not so discernible barriers militating against the actualization of the latent potentials of the African youth.”

“The villagization of the globe has rendered geographical barriers largely irrelevant. The movement towards a knowledge economy has also meant that proper nuances eliminate barriers. In essence economic opportunities have become transborder in nature and manifestation. There are enormous opportunities for private initiatives in the national and global economic space.”

“The young people should demand vociferously that our governments must enhance enabling entrepreneurial environment for young people is also a key to unleashing a culture of entrepreneurship among the youth. As this will have a broader impact in promoting sustainable development and addressing the barriers that specifically hinder young people like yourself to be economically empowered. Such empowerment will not only improve the individual life but also affect their community positively as they will serve as an agent of wealth creation.”

“In conclusion, I am challenging you as young Africans to engage in activities that would change the African narrative by participating fully in all the socio-economic and political activities that guarantee a better future for you and not allowing those who are messing up your future to succeed.”
