Youths Needs to Stand up and Take over leadership in Nigeria _____Onyekachi Divine.

I carefully x-rayed the political climes in Nigeria since the advent of Democracy. I intentionally omitted the pre-1999 period for obvious reasons. We are all aware that it has always been the same cabal since the independence and the military juntas.



Nigeria is endowed with young talented people who are doing great in their various fields, whether, engineering, science, arts, education, trading, agriculture, entertainment, fashion, banking, entrepreneurship, e- commerce, divinity e.t.c except politics. I said except politics and I mean it, most of the few young people who are in the corridors of powers are certainly not in powers because they don’t even know what goes on in there. Many of them are not too different from being house boys and girls. The old men will not allow or listen to them. A command -obey relationship exists, and nothing more.
The argument has always been that young people are not matured nor experienced enough to handle a complex country as Nigeria. You know, this sort of assumption is a calculated attempt to blackmail the young people into accepting that they are incapable by those who gained power at a very young age, but never plan to relinquish or quit the stage for others to come in; they’ll rather prefer to fill in their own children and relatives.

Nigerian youths are brilliant in all aspects of life: they are resourceful, genuinely skillful and can handle any task given to them, but here, the political dealers are thinking otherwise. They see youths as mere objects of voting. The old people have confined these young people to being continual instruments in their hands, and play roles of political thugs, errands boys and girls in the name of Personal Assistants, Senior Special Assistant on this and that.

Looking at what is obtainable in other countries like the US, UK, Canada, other advanced countries and even some African countries, you will hear that a boy or a girl of 21 years is a member of parliament, but in Nigeria, the old politicians don’t want the young people to near the real political leadership, they have invented and set all manners of barriers to stop them from being competitors.


The youth should not just come together for coming together sake but choose a think tank that will be responsible for drawing up policies, programmes, development map, campaign manifestos, charters and how to scale all the barriers the old men have set for them, the Nigerians youths should, as a matter of fact, convoke a National Youth Conference where the movement can start and send a big signal to the whole world that the Nigerians youth have resolved to come together to take the future now.
I sincerely hope that the youths will seize the 2019 elections to make a remarkable difference since the invention of our democracy.
