Group calls for youth, leaders re-orientation
The group made the call recently at a rally tagged, “Nigeria Must Change” held in Lagos. President of the group, Busuyi Ojo insisted that youths must go beyond complaining and start effecting the change they crave by interacting positively with their immediate environment, while the ruling class must correct the persistent malfeasance of corruption and insensitivity towards the youth and the future of the country.
Founder and producer of the Not In My Country project, Akin Fadeyi, echoed the group’s call, stating that a developed society is a result of symbiosis between good leadership and followership. According to him, “Nigeria has no government, we have big men who sit in big cars, blow siren, knock down people on the road and use their connection to subvert justice. Government should not expect citizens who are not taken care of to be responsible. Citizens especially the youths should also not think that only the government could put in place a responsible nation. Nigerian youths should spend less time on social media, go to the drawing board and think creatively and strategically.”
