Your Time To Run For President Has Not Come Yet – Osinbajo Tells Nigerian Youths by Limitednow: 2:42pm On Oct 28, 2018
Nigerian Youths have been urged not to worry themselves about becoming president of the country now.

Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, gave the advise on Saturday while answering questions at the 9th Sigma Club Public Lecture held on Saturday at the International Conference Centre of the University of Ibadan.

Delivering his lecture titled “Developing the nation through youth empowerment,” the professor of law urged the youths of the country to start from the grassroots, move on to the local government level, then to the state level.

Osinbajo, when asked the rationale behind the exorbitant price of the nomination form of the All Progressive Congress (APC), said the chances of Nigerian youths producing a president now was feasible because the time is yet to come.



“As for the federal level, “don’t worry yourself about running for president; it will take a while,” the International Center for Investigative Reporting (ICIR) quoted the vice president as saying.

He also said anyone who wants venture into politics should also go into public service.

“Anybody who wants a career in political positions should also make an attempt to get involved in public service since there are less than 2000 of such positions. Get involved in public service,” he added, calling on the youths to always hold the government accountable if theri future as leaders of tomorrow would be guaranteed.

His principal, President Muhammadu Buhari, who seeks a second term in office, NGPOLITICS recalls, had his expression of interest and nomination forms of the party paid for by his supporters.

The cost of the presidential forms of the two major political parties in the country has been so high that the youths could not afford it although the young population was described by the government as people who are lazy, seeking to reap where they did not sow.

While the cost of 2019 presidential form of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was fixed at N12million that of the APC was pegged at N45million.

It's difficult to differentiate the difference between this government and the PDP.

Inasmuch as I dislike Buhari's way of leadership, it will be an unwise thing for me to do if I don't applaud him and his administration on needs that matters. What Osinbanjo just said is the unadulterated truth. Not that we are too young to rule Nigeria but we're too young to lead Nigerians. If a youth becomes our president today, it's clear that the youths of this country will use it to their own selfish advantage. Things will become worse beyond reasonable measure. Everyone will be striving for unnecessary attention and hitting up the polity without justifiable cause. Imagine Sowore playing on the sensitivity of well-meaning Nigerians by telling us to take it back. Please help me to ask him that what exactly are we taking back cuz the last time I check, we have no business in Aso Rock. It's even a privilege that Buhari is being considerate. With the way we all have abused his leadership, he should have ordered an executive order-09 preventing young Nigerians from ever governing Nigeria again. But the few integrity left in him wouldn't let him do. Passing a bill would have been the best idea but those senators in our legislative arm of government may also take advantage of it. Throughout the world, it is conventional that the youths will lead in the future only. We're the true leaders of tomorrow. Let us give them our today...
Tomorrow is ours!

But come on for how long are we going to keep mute and watch this greedy old men continue to rule us without plans of handing power to the youths. they keep coming up with the stale and boring lines that the youths are the future of tomorrow.
