APC member Says ‘Nigerian Youths Not Ready For Leadership Positions’
Mr Karibi Bobmanuel, a member of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers, claims that Nigerian youngsters are more interested in following leaders than in becoming leaders.

On Friday, Bobmanuel told the Nigerian News Agency (NAN) in Port Harcourt that youngsters’ indifference with what is going on in the country is a significant issue.
“We have a situation where, youths or young leaders pretend or behave as if all is well and foolishly follow political leaders without a rethink.
“We act like a bought over, subdued and hopeless generation of youths that are always remotely controlled, like robots on what to do,’’ he lamented.
The 2023 general elections will be held in less than two years, according to Bobmanuel, but the millennials are not organized or coordinated to challenge the elder generation now in control.
“Pre-election activities for 2023 will begin in 2022, but as youths, we have yet to be organised because we have no focus.
“Until we organise ourselves, come together and speak with one voice, no matter the political divide, the older generation will continue to rule us,’’ he said.
To be able to dominate their units, the APC chairman urged Nigerian youths to mobilize for the current Continuous Voter Registration.
“We must not act unconcerned going forward; let’s mobilise the non-partisan Nigerians to register for their voter’s card ahead of 2023.
“If we organise ourselves in our various political parties, we will be able to mobilise and stop the older generation from continuing in office,’’ Bobmanuel said.
