Not Too Young To Run: Are The Youths Ready ? by Robin24: 2:09pm On Jan 25, 2022
On Monday the 29th of May 2023, Nigeria will have a new President, this is because the 8 years tenure of the current administration would have come to an end. This will be the third time that the country would be transitioning from one Government to another. In a country of over 200 million individuals according to The World Bank, its imperative that it maintains a sustainable governance institutions.

Given this backdrop, the choice of the nations leader can not be over emphasized. From the current crop of serious contenders for the number office in the land, one can hardly find any youth that can win votes on a national or even local level. If one takes a look at the current political structures of the major parties - PDP and APC, there is hardly any formidable youth that can contest or put up a good show at the next elections.

The questions that need to be answered now are:

a) Where are the youths?
b) What factors are hindering them?
c) Will they ever be given a chance ?

Only time will tell?

I dont believe that Nigerian youths are ready for leadership.

Even the youngest governor in this country has shown that youth have NOTHING TO OFFER. I mean, check Kogi out? no salary, bandits here and there, poor leadership etc, etc.

So where is the readiness coming from? THEY ARE NOT READY AND IT IS OBVIOUS!!!!!!!!!

A good number of Nigerian youths need good civic education and guided political participation.

For resources and engagement on Social Impact, [/url]youthaction.ng[/url] is a very good platform for youths.

But even the Not too young to run law is lip service. Law that is not even worth the paper it's written on. Where's the implementation strategy? How many Nigerian youths can afford PDP and APC tickets

The government needs to create the enabling environment for the law to be implemented.

..and the youths? They are busy jostling for Youth leader and SA to the SA to the SA positions, when their mates dey lead countries.

We can come together collectively, create a gofundme account, select a reliable candidate and push him/ her to office.
That way, we will have a say in the affairs of the nation.

Okay, just for argument sake.
How do you mobilize Nigerian youths this close to an election.

Most of them have given up on the system. Besides, even if we crowd fund, our votes won't count.

So what's the point, its just an exercise in futility as far as am concerned.

Na to JAPA sure pass.

My 2 cents.

The GoFundMe that produced #change and #nextlevel? Nobody should sell poverty and sob stories to us anymore. All of us dey street dey hustle. I'm not giving shingbain!

The solution is for the government to make and implement laws and policies that regulate the activities of these political parties. You can't be preaching inclusion on one hand and with the other raise the bar beyond what's reasonable. There should be a reasonable ceiling for tickets, and campaign expenses.

If we can't run for President, let's gun for the legislative houses. Let's have a Legislative arm that is proactive and alive to the realities of the 21st century.

The Legislative arm needs to crawl out of the armpit of the executive arm, there's more to be done beyond tickling the executive. Having more youths who are not stooges of the old ones in the National and State Assemblies is a good step forward. Not these ones that parade their wives in the hallowed chambers.

Buhari that is urging the youths, how many youths are in his cabinet? In 2022 we have a Minister of Science and Technology that's above 50, why won't he talk about producing pencils.
