Power Is Not Given On A Platter – Osinbajo Tells Nigerian Youths

 

Vice-President, Yemi Osinbajo has advised Nigerian youths to contest for elective positions during the 2023 general elections if they want to assume power.

Osinbajo stated this during a two-day retreat for young lawmakers in Lagos on Monday. He warned that power is never given on a platter.

The vice-president who was represented by the Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate) to President Muhammadu Buhari, Babajide Omoworare, said the not-too-young-to-run movement would be defeated if the youths fail to contest for elective positions.

He said, “In preparation for 2023 general elections, we must realise that greater participation of our youths should not be mere rhetoric.

“Power is never handed over on a platter. If you don’t bid, you can’t win. We must also register to vote.

“The whole essence is to ensure that youths get involved in the process of democracy and also in the parliamentary process”.
