Omoyele Sowore, the 2023 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) has stated that Nigerian youths are not bothered about taking over the country from the older generation, they are happy with tagging along.

He said this while reacting to the swearing-in of 44-year-old Bassirou Diomaye Faye as the President of Senegal.

Sowore faulted the attitude of young Nigerians towards politics, lamenting that they are more interested in becoming special assistants to governors or senators.

Sowore shared his reservations during Tuesday’s edition of Channels Television’s Politics Today.

Faye was sworn in at an event attended by several African leaders in Dakar on Tuesday.

Speaking on the development from New Jersey in the United States (USA), Sowore insisted that Nigerian youths need to become more daring in politics to be able to replicate what happened in Senegal.

Sowore said, “Our young people are concerned with doing what I call tag-along. They are more interested in becoming special assistants to governors or senators.

“I have not seen that clear aspiration on the part of our young people to become leaders.

“You cannot be young, mission-driven, and a visionary and go and hide your bushel under some of these old people who have no idea of how to even operate a phone.

“Youthfulness is also important in the sense that you need leaders that are alert and capable and responsive and do not have to spend half of the time in the hospital.”
