President Buhari Reveals Why He Joined Partisan Politics And When Youth Will Rule Nigeria
President Muhammadu Buhari has said that someday, the Nigerian youth will lead the country whether the older generation of leader like it not.
The President said this when the Youth leadership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) from the six geo-political zones visited him on Friday.
The Presidential spokesman, Mr. Femi Adesina quoted the president as asking the youth to prepare for when the baton of leadership will be handed over to them.
He also advised the younger generation to keep a broader view of the country as one entity and religious backgrounds in nation building.
According to Mr President, “With all the certainty, someday you will have to take up the mantle of leadership in this country, and you should be prepared for the huge responsibilities, ” President Buhari said.
“It is a fact, “Whether we like it or not, we will someday handover to Nigerian Youths. So you have to brace up for leadership, especially the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Some interest groups will come up with ethnic, religious issues, but you have to look at the broader picture. (Look beyond ethnic and religious issues)
“We had a civil war that consumed over 2 million Nigerians, and we learnt our lesson. Nigeria is one country, and no one should take our firmness for granted”
According to President Buhari, he took interest in politics after “a clean bill on his integrity” by those who detained him after the 1985 military coup and who also “thoroughly checked his records” as Governor, Minister of petroleum and Head of State and “found nothing incriminating him. (Buhari)
After I was released from prison and nothing was found on me I took interest in politics. This is what pushed me into partisan politics to serve my country with integrity. So I decided to try leadership as a civilian, after taking off the military uniforms on me, ” he said.
“I am currently serving my last term in office as President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I swore by the constitution to defend the country, and I will do exactly what is needful for the country.
