Things To Note As Prof Osinbajo Urges Nigerian Youth To Join Politics

While in a programme on Wednesday, the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo took his time to enlighten the Nigerian youth on what they need to know about politics and some of the benefits that the youth and other social activists will gain in joining politics.

During his conversation, Professor Yemi Osinbajo made it clear that Nigeria is blessed with wonderful and smart thinking youth and as such he said to make a difference, the Nigerian Political system needs the youth, see some of the points that the Vice President mentioned during his speech.

1. Government still holds the power to control all.

Looking at how the youth coordinate themselves during the 2020 EndSARS nationwide protest, the VP said the idea of transforming the society into a better and peaceful environment still depends on politicians. According to the VP, he said many Nigerians see the politicians as the game changer and as such he implores the youth to be part of the game to contribute their quota.

Indeed, there is a limit to what a social or human rights activist can do with their power, and to this extent, it will be so nice if the youth can harken to what the Vice President said.

2. You have to be in a position to make the difference that the country needs.

Using himself as an example, Professor Yemi Osinbajo said "if not for his political career, he would have remained a pressure group activist." There are so many things that need to be corrected in the country and it will remain like that if the right kind of people or youth is not ready to be part of the system.

Instead of serving as hoodlums, thugs or oppressor, the Vice President has just given an offer to everyone that wants to be a leader. The right time is now, the country needs smart and intelligent youth to be among those that are directing the affairs of the country.

3. Professor Yemi Osinbajo did not preach Political party.

The beautiful thing about Yemi Osinbajo speech is that he did not campaign for or against any political party. This simply implies that every youth can find a platform to build their political career in their local environment.

The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo believes the solution to a country's problem lies in the strength of her youth and as such, he is sending out a free invite to all interested youth to be part of the system.
