Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has advised young people to get active in politics rather than expecting power to be delivered to them on a silver platter.
The Vice President, who was represented by Babajide Omoworare, President Muhammadu Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Matters (Senate), at a two-day retreat for young lawmakers in Lagos on Monday, October 4, said the not-too-young-to-run movement would be defeated if the youths failed to contest for elective positions.
“We must realize that greater participation of our youths should not be mere hyperbole in preparation for the 2023 general elections,” Osinbajo remarked.
“Power is never given to you on a silver platter. You can’t win if you don’t bid.
