NIGERIAN YOUTHS ARE LEADERS OF TODAY, NOT TOMMOROW ANYMORE
The country, Nigeria, as we all know it today has been shaped and re – shaped by only the leadership class of yesteryears and this begs the question of what has happened to the “leaders of tomorrow ”
In a country like ours, it is dispiriting to think what the future holds, when as blessed as we are, what has befallen us is regression compared to buoyant developing and developed countries of the world.
This is quite serious, disheartening, unimaginable and alarming and I keep wondering how we got here and when exactly Nigeria will regain her lost image of” giant of Africa” .
Even today an average youth of Nigeria still believes this future is still coming not knowing it was a trick used by our colonial masters and founding leaders not to allow us get to the peak of leadership positions in this country (Nigeria).
I keep asking ” Who are these Leaders of tomorrow? Or Is tomorrow not going to come again????? or the beautiful ones are not yet born? What a shameful act by those gluttons called leaders. Who do they think they are deceiving?. I just know that we have People Deceiving People political party and not to mention APC caucus.
It is time the youths wake up from their slumber and have hold of their age long glory and be active in the nation – building process and lived the true meaning of the saying that they are the leaders of today and no more tomorrow.
