2023: Older people should step down Says Obasanjo

A former Nigerian President, Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo has urged the older generation to step down for the youth to pilot the affairs of the country, Oxen News reports

In his remarks, Obasanjo said the older generation should support the younger generation with the needed knowledge and experience to transform Nigeria.

The former President spoke yesterday at the 2022 annual lecture of the Murtala Muhammed Foundation.

He faulted old politicians still contesting for the Presidency in 2023.

According to Obasanjo: “We need to have an intergenerational collaboration. Fayemi said he was in primary school when Murtala and Obasanjo were there.

“So, if people of the Murtala/Obasanjo era are competing with you as Governor, then, something is wrong.

“The Murtala/Obasanjo group should be stepping aside.

“Whatever experience and knowledge we have, we should be able to give it to you and you should be able to give it to those coming after you.”
