2023: Abdusalami advocates for younger generation to be Nigeria president

Former Head of State, General Abdusalami Abubakar, has disclosed that Nigeria would be better if a younger generation is allowed to be the next president come 2023.

Abubakar, who is also the Chairman of the National Peace Committee, said younger Nigerians are better exposed to the challenges of the country and have a better understanding of the available technology to address the challenge.

He made this known when he received a presidential aspirant, Prince Adewole Adebayo and his entourage at his Minna residence.

According to him, it is interesting that more younger persons are showing interest in the office of the President in the forthcoming general elections.

His words: “Indeed Nigeria needs the younger generation to take over from us, the older generation.

“I am so happy, that not only you but so many other young people are showing interest in taking over the leadership of this country.

“Like you rightly said the world is going digital, I believe the younger generation is more exposed internationally, in IT technology than, as, the other generation.

“I am happy that you are thinking of moving the country forward and I believe with your ideologies, youth and vibrant ambition, I think Nigeria is on the right path, to see that we are trying and we should be able to make Nigeria a great country.

“Nigeria with a population of over 200 million, certainly is a great country and your leadership will go a long way to making it even greater.

The presidential aspirant, Prince Adewole Adebayo who said he would emerge a product of the third force, told Abdusalami that the 2023 election was another transition for Nigeria.

He pointed out that the visit to the former Head of State for his blessings and counsel was because he midwifed the return to democracy at a difficult time in the history of Nigeria.
