A governorship aspirant in Ogun State, Ademola Ogunbanjo, has condemned President Muhammadu Buhari for asking Nigerian youths not to contest for elective positions in 2019.
After signing the ‘Not too young to run’s bill into law, Buhari had told Nigerian youths not to come out yet but after 2019.
Speaking in Abeokuta on Wednesday, Ogunbanjo noted that the situation in country required fresh ideas, arguing that the current administration has been bereft of ideas to pull the country out of the woods.
He further explained that the effort to rescue the country required urgency and new approach.
Ogunbanjo said: “Can the youth really continue to wait? Wait till when? Wait till after 2019. I did not support such position. The race has to be now.
“The current administration has not been able to pull the country out of the woods. We cannot continue to do things the same way and expect new result.
“Governance currently requires new approach and fresh ideas. We need to invest in the country’s human resource.”
