|Open Advice To Nigerian Youth: The Time Is Now by 2packer(m): 7:16am On Jan 14|
I have searched the internet and the entire media space for a consistent and credible political agenda to enable the YOUTH of this great country take the mantle of leadership and run with it towards providing an enabling society were all lives matter as well as a society were ethnicity, bigotry and religious sentiments will no longer be our way of life. I have heard of some names and have seen some vibrant Nigerian youths mobilising themselves.
HERE IS MY TAKE
1. The Time is NOW for all the youths that have the will and believe for this country to come together to fight this monsters called PDP and APC
2. The time is now to Develope a blueprint and continue to use the power of social media to mobilize and inform the YOUTH.
3. The time is now to source for a credible and charitable organisation to supervise fund raising for this purpose. Because if the youths have to ask for funds from these same politicians who have plundered ourlives or use any of their corrupt platforms, they will still demand a stake in the process and the goal to rescue NIGERIA would have been defeated even before starting it. Imagine 500 Naira each from 20,000,000 Youths and we are talking about 10 billion Naira already which can go a long way. Don't forget some of us will be willing to sacrifice extra 500 Naira as well as sacrifice time, energy and our sweat towards the rescue of this great country.
3. Please Nigerian YOUTH the time to ACT is NOW.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria

I think its good to contribute this here
2019 Presidential Aspirants: What they should do if older than 60
This writeup is base on the premise that "What's good for the goose is good for the gander" - and invariably, what's good for the civil servants is good for the political aspirants.
I made a quick scan yesterday about the age of some of the people whose intention has been publicly declared to run as presidential candidate in the upcoming 2019 general election but was supprised that almost all of them have age older than 60, the civil service retirement age.
The retirement age was pegged at 60 not because of hatred for the civil servants by the government or the lawmakers but because of other factors which include their been psychologically, physiologically and mentally unfitness to meet up with their daily work demands due to the the call of old age.
Any aspirant with age older than 60 will not get our votes, so we advise them now to drop their presidential ambitions. Their children and immediate family needs them more than ever before to enjoy their company and learn from their life exploits before they finally go to their graves.
We need young vibrant adults who are liberated, civil, has clean records and are already doing something good with their individual lives. We need smart, intelligent and presentable leaders who will be pragmatic to national issues, growth and development and not just political jobbers.
Now, get me right this once and for all that this writeup is not a campaign strategy for any aspirant whose age is below 60 because we will still disqualify him or her for our votes if he or she could not meet up with the remaining ten requirement standards for earning our votes.
If they have the love of the citizen at heart and not just for power, fame and financial gain sake, they should please respect the choice of the people and accept their unfitness to becoming a president in Nigeria. They should respect themselves.
This is where the respect is, they should find, adopt or raise a younger candidate to support and mentor. They should then present them to us and see if we will not vote for them so far they fulfill our 11 requirements.
Lastly, let me challenge the young adults. What are your fears? What are your excuses?
You don't have any excuse for not running for the presidential race in the upcoming 2019 general election. If you think you lack capital, maybe you are wrong, things are becoming fast changing, you don't need to much of capital to run presidential campaign.
You don't lack capital, you only lack been resourceful. Many business mogul are ready to sponsor you if you ask them to, Nigerian youths are ready to raise capital, your political group will do something and what about internet crowd funding options?
If your hands are clean and you're qualified with our 11 point requirement for presidential aspirant, nomatter what the party you are, we the Nigerian youths will support you and vote en masse to ensure you become our president.
The youth make up the largest part of the Nigerian population and are mostly on the social media where you can reach them. The social media is the cheapest way to run a presidential camapign, remember the last general election.
Wake up! Wake Up from your slumber! Nigerian youth, please wakeup! Don't say you will not participate in politics. All governmental policies are directly affecting everything you do even in the corner of your room so why not put your destiny into the right hands?
