The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 election Omoyele Sowore said Nigerian youths are only interested in being Personal Assistants to Presidents and governors and not in actually attaining a position of higher authority. Sowore stated this in an interview on Channels Television while speaking on the assumption of office of Senegal’s 44 year old president, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, on Tuesday, April 2. Inhis words; Our young people are concerned with doing what I call tag-along. They are more interested in becoming special assistants to governors or senators. I have not seen that clear aspiration on the part of our young people to become leaders. Sowore said Nigerian youths need to become more daring in politics to be able to replicate the new dispensation in Senegal.  You cannot be young, mission-driven, and a visionary and go and hide your bushel under some of these old people who have no idea of how to even operate a phone. Youthfulness is also important in the sense that you need leaders that are alert and capable and responsive and do not have to spend half of the time in the hospital, he said. Recall that the former President Muhammadu Buhari signed the Not Too Young Bill, which provides for the youths to vie for the presidency and other positions. The post Senegalese President: Nigerian Youths are more interested in becoming special assistants to governors or senators- Sowore appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
