A former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (Retd), has urged the youth to show interest and contest for elective positions in the 2023 presidency and general elections.

He gave the charge Friday when he received a 2023 presidential aspirant, Prince Adewole Adebayo, at his residence in Minna, Niger state capital.

“Thank you, Adebayo for finding me fit to come and tell me of your ambition. Indeed, Nigeria needs the younger generation to take over from us the older generation. I am so happy that not only you, other young people are showing interest in taking over the leadership of the nation.

“Like you rightly said the world is going digital and the I believe the younger generation are more exposed internationally in ICT more than the older generation.

“I am happy that you are thinking of moving the country forward and I believe with your ideologies and your youthful and vibrant ambition. I think Nigeria is on the right part and wish Nigeria will be great.

“Nigeria with a population of over 200million certainly is a great country and the leadership will go a long way to make it a greater place. You can count on our support always trying to do the right thing. I thanked you (Dalung) for bringing your friend for this visit,” Abdulsalami said.

Adebayo who is the President of Kaftan TV and Founder of the Law House, was accompanied by a former Minister of Sports, Solomon Dalung, among others.

“Indeed, Nigeria needs the younger generation to take over from us the older generation. I am so happy that not only you, other young people are showing interest in taking over the leadership of the nation,” Abdulsalami said.

Adebayo commended Abdulsalami for his efforts in seeing the nation return to democracy in May 1999.

 “The reason I have come out is essential because the country itself needs to be saved now and people like you risked your life for it literally and you lost many of your compatriots. Even the country hasn’t reached its full potential.”

“So, 2023 is not to us in this generation an ordinary year just like you did for us in 1998, it is a year in which there are two parts, the part that leads to the continuation of this road that we know eminently does not augur well for the country or a new part that the people who are going to inherit the future start building the future now and the responsibility that you carried when you were at our age, we need to carry them now,” Adebayo said.
