OPINION: MY TAKE ON WHETHER THE YOUTH OR OLDER GENERATION SHOULD ASPIRE FOR THE NIGERIAN PRESIDENCY





This is not just about the youth or the elders becoming our leaders. It's beyond that people!  Until the lower class begins to force our leaders to be accountable,  we will remain stagnant!!! 

We keep forgetting that the majority of the  Middle and upper class have more valuable assets to protect in the society, and therefore are more vested in Nigeria than the rest of us. It's time the middle and upper class stopped being "spokespersons" for us to protect their interests and investments.   

In my opinion,  it's the lower class that is better situated to trigger and cause a real change from the so many wrongs and systemic injustices in our society, after all, they have nothing to lose but all to gain from an equitable society wrought from a revolution.

It is often said that when one is pushed to the wall one is bound to react, but nowadays they reverse is the norm, we cower at the slightest threats to the extent of digging holes in the wall we are pushed to, to hide, when faced with the slightest threats by our oppressors.  


We the youths of this generation should arise and chart a new course of responses to the doses of oppressive actions from our perpetual oppressors so that posterity will judge us well.
