Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerian youths to contribute towards addressing the numerous challenges confronting the nation, rather than leaving ‘things to those messing it up.’
Speaking at a recent event, the former President said if the youths leave the country in the hands of people messing it up, there will nothing for the younger generation tomorrow.
According to him, “The first thing we want to prove is that there are opportunities galore in this country. Yes, things are not what they should be but you as youths, individually and collectively, must make up your mind. Make contributions in order to make things the way they should be.
If you leave things to those who are messing it up for you and who are saying you are the leaders of tomorrow, you will never have that tomorrow. Today is your day.
