Nigerian youths must oppose those messing up their future – Obasanjo


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised Nigerian youths not to allow those messing up their future to succeed.

Obasanjo also urged them to change the narrative by participating in all socio-economic and political activities.

A statement by spokesperson Kehinde Akinyemi said the ex-leader spoke at a mentorship retreat organised by the Youth Development Center of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL).

He said in most parts of Africa, there are visible barriers that are affecting the actualization of the latent potential of the youth.

The one-time Head of State charged young citizens never to allow another person to determine or shape their space in society.

Obasanjo said if youths can be desperate enough to trek through the desert to get menial jobs in Europe, that energy and spirit should be channelled to eradicate physical and mental barriers.

“I am challenging you as young Africans to engage in activities that would change the African narrative.

“Participate in socio-economic and political activities that guarantee a better future for you and don’t allow those who are messing up your future to succeed”, he added.
