Ahead of 2023, leader of the Niger Delta Peoples Salvation Force, NDPSF, Mujahid Asari-Dokubo has said the youths in Nigeria must step forward and take power from the older generation.
Asari made the remark while backing former military Head of State, Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida, IBB, remark on the age bracket of Nigeria’s next president.
Babangida had recently listed qualities the next president of Nigeria should possess.
Among the qualities listed, the former military ruler said the next president should be within 60 years of age.
IBB also pointed out that the next president of Nigeria should have friends everywhere, must also be well-versed in economics, and be a good politician able who has the capacity to talk to Nigerians.
Reacting, Dokubo said the older generation of leaders have failed, hence the youths should rise up.
The former militant leader spoke, in a video on his Facebook page where he blamed Nigeria’s challenges on bad leadership caused by the older politicians.
He also urged the youths to unite and pick those who can bring about change in Nigeria.
According to Dokubo: “The younger generation must step forward now and take power. Power is not given, power is taken.
“Now that the older generation has realized that they failed. Ibrahim Babangida had come out to say that it is time for these people to retire. And that is the truth. They have nothing to offer.
“We have to look beyond their shoulders for much younger people to take over leadership positions, and correct the wrongs and the stagnation that the black race has been put into.
“For Ibrahim Babangida, I say thank you for the first time, for saying what will change and totally revolutionise the face of politics in this part of the world.
“So, for us, young people, we should come together, and identify those of us who are capable of leading this change. This is the time.”
