“The older generations have failed us,” said Mr Bello and, it is time for them to give room for the younger generation to take over the helm of leadership to make it right.”
Emphasising his point, the Kogi governor added, “The responsibility lies on you as youths to take this into your own hands to fix the future of this country.
“You have called on me to lead you as the president and, I will heed to your call when the time comes. You must make your voices crystal clear.”
The Kogi governor made the call on Wednesday while breaking his Ramadan fast with some youth representatives across various student unions in the state.
The governor who is assumed to be an advocate of youth leadership, urged them to start taking charge of their future and according to him, leverage the opportunity provided by President Buhari.
“You should not avail yourselves to be used as tools to perpetrate any form of violence or crimes because the future of this country lies in your hands,” Mr Bello stated.
