By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The Acting national leader of the Pan Yoruba Socio-Political Group, Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo, has accused Nigerian youths of failing the country.
Adebanjo made this remark during the dedication of a Church in the honour of the 95th birthday ceremony of Pa Reuben Fasoranti at Iju/Ita Ogbolu in Akure North council area of Ondo state.
”The younger generation has failed the country. The country was not as bad as this when we were demonstrating self-governance.
“They want the old men to fight their cause for them. Why should people like me be in the trenches at 93 and Baba Fasoranti at 95? Where are those in their 40s and 30s?
“When we were at their age, we were on the street, at Lagos, London, everywhere and when we were in the university. What we have to say is jobbery where you can get somebody in the government to get you a job.
“You are PDP in the morning, APC in the afternoon and SDP in the evening, and they say they are young, the youth should be ashamed of themselves”
He, however, expressed hope in a better future for the country, saying the future looked brighter than the present.
