The former Senate President of Nigeria, Bukola Saraki has urged youths to get involved in the political process if they want to see the change they desire
Bukola Saraki affirmed that the youths have the numbers to drive change but except there’s a deliberate effort to elect the type of leaders they want and hold them to the standards required, Nigeria will continue to maintain the status quo.
The former governor of Kwara state, made this known while speaking to youths at an independence day lunch event hosted at Abuja.
According to him,
“Until young people like you take it upon yourselves to say ‘what kind of Governor do I want’; ‘what kind of Senator do I want,’ or ‘what kind of President do I want’, things will not change.
“If you take charge and ownership of this entire process, when you get the right type of President who has been voted in by you and knows that you have the numbers and capacity to vote him out, he will pick more young people like you when he picks his cabinet.
“At the end of the day, this is how it works as you go down the line. This is why you must take ownership of this process to show our generation that you are ready and serious about deciding the direction of Nigeria.2023: ?The numbers favour you?
“If you look at the numbers, they work in your favour. Even if you can register just half of the 18 million unregistered youth voters that are between 18 and 35, your voting bloc will decide everything.”
