Youth group under the auspices of Visionary Young Nigerian Leaders Initiatives (VYNLI) has declared its readiness to take over power from President Muhammadu Buhari come 2023 for purposeful leadership.
The Convener of the group, Hon. James Makeri disclosed this Saturday while addressing a press conference in Kaduna.
He said, “We Youth have answered the clarion call to rescue Nigeria come 2023. We want to state not only our willingness, but our readiness to take over the affairs of the country given that the future of this country belongs to us.
“The gerontocrats who are holding this country hostage through destructive policies and loans, mortgaging the future for us the youth because their time on the political stage is fast fading out ought to give way for us to shape the sort of future befitting for us and to those who would come after us.
“Our aim for power is to build a sustainable future for us and for those after us, because those at the helm of affairs have failed us. However we know we can not climb the ladder without the support of the gerontocrats.
“We want to remind them that the future of Nigeria depends largely on their willingness to surrender key decision making bodies to the youth who would remain here long after to suffer for any misstep taken by the present crop of leaders” he stated.
Makeri equally appealed to Omoyele Sowere to “abandon his Movement ‘RevolutionNow’ and join us in ‘YouthAriseInDemocracyNow’, the purest and surest path for us to take our rightful place in the political space of our country”.
He reiterated that the present administration has failed Nigerians, adding that, this government lack focus and not human centred while condemning the increase of pump price and called on the federal government to consider the suffering masses and ensure a downward review of the price.
