Charly Boy Wants Nigerian Youths to Unite and Hold Leaders Accountable

Entertainment maverick, Charly Boy, has called on Nigerian youths to speak with one voice and hold leaders at all levels accountable in order to secure a nation of their dreams.

He gave the advice on Monday in Abuja in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) to mark 56th anniversary of Nigeria’s independence.

He expressed regret that Nigeria was still economically and politically dependent with little or no opportunities for its youths after 56 years of self-rule.

“The youths, who are supposed to ask their leaders questions are the ones carrying brief cases for them.

Some of them are still sagging their trousers without being moved by the bleak future that successive leaders have created for them.

Why can’t they stand up and take their future in their hands by holding their leaders accountable?” he asked.

The ‘Area fada’, as he is fondly called by young people, expressed regret that Nigeria had been left behind by other nations that gained independence with her at the same time.

He said that the country found itself at this cross road not because it lacked human and natural resources, but because it was bedevilled by corrupt and self-serving leaders over the years.

“We started with countries like Brazil, Singapore and others; today they are among strong and self-sustaining nations. Nigeria as a nation still imports almost everything, including staple goods. Is it not pathetic to see a 56-year-old adult who cannot take care of him or herself?” he asked.

Charly Boy stated that leaders at all levels in the country are insensitive to the collective interests of the people because the youths of the present generation are passive.

“The youths of the 70s used to stand up and agitate against policies and programmes of government that are not people-oriented thereby holding the leaders accountable. Today, our youths have decided to suffer and smile, while others have chosen to be political tugs and body guards to the same people who have traded off their future,” he said.

The social activist stressed the need for Nigerian youths to remain united and patriotic irrespective of tribal and religious divides.

“The youths must refuse to be divided as a people with common struggle and destiny so that they can win together. The Nigerian youths have been manipulated too long along tribal and religious sentiments by their leaders. It is time they stood up and save their future together,” Charly Boy urged.

    So many countries are worse off today than 40yrs ago. It is very disheartening as a black person to look around the globe and can only count two successful black nations. It is a travesty that black leaders are so unbelievably incompetent and how we accept shyt piled on a plate decade in decade out from them. When they can’t come up with sustainable ways to build the economy they sell off valuable resources to outsiders with nothing for the nation and its ppl to get in return. Now they have taken to slave trading, sending their citizenry to work menial jobs all over the globe, even exposing their citizens to hellish experiences because they can’t be bothered to build a sustainable economy with a healthy job market. They want to rule to stroke their own egos, not to build a healthy nation, it’s all ego for them. If it wasn’t for the remittances send back from those who migrated they wouldn’t have any foreign exchange. Entire countries are surviving solely on remittances. Useless visionless dickless men who can’t even keep their breath fresh and arses properly clean are ruling nations. Kmt.

      You have said it all. Nigeria needs to put a death penalty on corruption to deter people fleeing with our resources.

    After listening to Peter Obi’s speech, I am beginning to see my calling clearly! Until we the the Nigerian Youths at Home and Abroad are ready to hold the Nigerian Leaders hostage, especially with the high cost of governance, as Nigeria is not broke!they need to cut cost, by first cutting the salaries starting with Buhari as change start with him , down to local government level!Buhari should first sell 9 out of the 11 Jets ! Afterall he was busy telling Jonathan then that he did not need the fleets of Jets, so while is he keeping them, as far as I am concerned, it is a useless asset, as it is not generating any revenue! Each state should keep its resoucrces and generate its own income, that is the American Model! Abuja is not producing anything , but it is the finest region in Nigeria! We cannot continue to impoverish the Niger Delta region to develop States and Regions that have nothing to offer! True Federalism is the only way, enough is enough!The Nigerian Youths should unite, as I have a friend who gone back to the Ghana after having the best education from a top business school! You see Nigerians here in the US, doing everrything to keep themselves in slavery abroad, you can spend so much top school and go to do menial jobs, it does not make sense! Until Nigerian youths all over the world come together take back our rights, these wicked old leaders that refuse to die we keep recycling themselves! I know some of my friends that keep saying that they are children of Zion ,so anywhere they are in the world is their home! That is what I wil call outright stupidity! as it was through Nigeria brought you through to enter into the spiritual Zion! The Isrealites did not say because they are chosen by God spiritually, then they will allow their physical location on earth become desolate! This is a clarion call for the youths in Nigeria to come together and unite as one whether muslims, christians, juju worshipers,or whatever you believe! we should not allow these devilish old leaders to continue dividing us across ethnic and religions lines! They know what they are doing!
