Nigerian youth must oppose those who spoil their future – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has advised young Nigerians not to allow those who spoil their future to succeed.

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

A statement by Kahinde Akinyemi spokesperson said the former leader spoke at a counseling retreat organized by the Youth Development Center of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL).

In most parts of Africa, he said, there are clear barriers affecting the realization of the latent potential of young people.

The head of state has previously accused young citizens of not allowing another person to define or shape their space in society.

Obasanjo said that if young people can be desperate enough to trek across the desert to get menial jobs in Europe, that energy and spirit must be channeled into breaking down physical and mental barriers.

“I challenge you as young Africans to engage in activities that will change the African narrative.

He added, “Participate in the social, economic and political activities that guarantee you a better future and do not allow those who spoil your future to succeed.”
