Former President of Nigeria, Olusegun Obasanjo, has challenged Nigerian youths not to wait till tomorrow before taking over the leadership of the country from corrupt politicians.
While urging the younger generation to reject the “leaders of tomorrow” tag, the former Nigerian leader predicted that corrupt leaders would destroy the so-called tomorrow if they fail to rise up and take their future in their hands.
Obasanjo, who spoke at an interview with Nigerian football legend, Segun Odegbami, on his Eagle7 Sports programme on 103.7 FM, Abeokuta, charged the youths to wake up from their slumber
He said, “My advice for Nigerian youths is that they should never let anybody tell them that you are the leaders of tomorrow. If you wait for tomorrow before you take over leadership, that tomorrow may not come. They will destroy it.”
“This is the time the youth should get up and make it happen,” Obasanjo said while responding to questions from Odegbami.
