EX-PRESIDENT OBASANJO CHARGES NIGERIAN YOUTHS TO TAKE OVER POWER



The Ex-President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, has charged Nigerian youths to take over power also contribute in the affairs of the country. 

He made this statement on Thursday when the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN) paid a visit to Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL) at Abeokuta in Ogun State.  

He said:

“Whatever I have done, I have done it because I was educated and the love I have for Nigeria. If I didn’t have education, I would not have been able to do what I have done and today, it pains me that more than 13million Nigerian children who should be in school are out of school.

“We don’t need additional teachers; you will only increase what those teachers get maybe by 40 per cent or something, we can even do two streams if we prepare for that and start two years from now and those children would have become product that would be able to make contributions and make their own life better and as well making the life of their families too better.

“I am so much concerned about the youths, the truth is, over 60 per cent of our populations are youths and under 30 years of age.

“Don’t let anybody tell you that you are too young, I started making contribution to the world when I was serving in Congo in 1960, I was only 24 years old. By the time I went to the war front, I was still under 35 years of age, by the time I became the Head of State, I was under 40 years of age.”
