Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai has urged Nigerian youth to join political parties and participate in their processes.
In a post shared on the Kaduna State’s official Facebook page, El-Rufai complained about “young people” who insult leaders on social media.
If young people wish to “chase ‘old people,’ from positions of power, he wrote, they must join political parties and participate in their processes. He wrote:
Young people think insulting leaders on social media will change the way things are in Nigeria. No one would hand over the mantle of leadership to you simply because you’re young. If you want to chase “old people” from positions of power, you must join a party and participate in the process no matter how bad, dirty and dangerous you think it is.
