BUT WHY?
Where did we get it wrong?
Awolowo was (37), Akintola (36), Ahmadu Bello (36)
Balewa (34) and Okotie-Eboh (27), Enahoro (27) led the
struggle for independence after the death of Macaulay.
Only Zik was 42 at the time.
In 1966, the first coup was led by: Kaduna Nzeogwu (29)
and countered by Murtala Mohammed (28), Theophilus
Danjuma (28), Babangida (25), Nanven Garba (23), Sani
Abacha (23), Shehu Musa Yaradua (23), and brought into
power Gowon (32), Ojukwu (33), Obasanjo (29), Buhari
(24).
Most of the military administrators who governed the
states under the successive military regimes, most of
whom are governors now, were under 30 years.
The brief democratic dispensation which interjected the
military interregnums also saw the House of
Representativesin particular populated by majority of
members under 30 years as well as some senators.
Under 30s were also not in short supply with
appointments, we have examples of MT Mbu who became
foreign affairs minister at 23 and Pat Utomi who became a
presidential adviser at 27 and so on and so forth.
NOW:
Why is it that this age bracket is today still sleeping in 3
seater chairs in their parents’ homes?
Why is it that this age bracket is today still collecting
pocket money from their parents?
Why is it that this age bracket is today still writing JAMB?
Why is it that this age bracket is today still sagging their
trousers?
Why is it that this age bracket is today still searching for
jobs, not yet married?
Why is it that this age bracket is today no longer qualified
to even be leaders of youth wings of political parties?
Why is it that this age bracket is today so docile?
Why is it that this age bracket is today still incapable of
feeding itself?
Why is it that this age bracket is today barred by law from
even aspiring to certain political offices?
Why is it that this age bracket is today incapacitated,
unwilling, unable and incapable of asking questions?
