‘Take over leadership now’ – Obasanjo tells Nigerian youths



The call from Former President Olusegun Obasanjo to the Nigerian youth is clear: it is time to seize the leadership mantle. Addressing the Bridge Foundation’s Emerging Political Leaders Fellowship programme in Abuja, Obasanjo urged the young citizens to step up and take on leadership roles in the nation.

In his impassioned plea, Obasanjo emphasized the importance of taking action now, asserting that if the youth don’t assert themselves as leaders, they may never have the opportunity again. He encouraged them to be disruptors of the status quo and not to settle for things as they are. He stressed the need to challenge and unsettle those who are comfortable with the current state of affairs.

Furthermore, he highlighted the significance of possessing accurate knowledge and the fear of God as essential attributes for effective leadership. Obasanjo also emphasized the need for diligence, integrity, and the embracement of cherished values in aspiring leaders.

The message is clear – the time for the youth to take the lead is now. Obasanjo’s words serve as a rallying call for a new generation of leaders to step forward and shape the future of Nigeria.
