Dr Thomas-Wilson Ikubese, A Former Presidential Aspirant and Convener of the YesWeFit Revolutionary Movement has stressed the need for young Nigerians to gather across party divides to take political leadership from what he described as the Old Politicians.
Ikubese said this while speaking during a channels television Programme, Sunrise Daily on Friday.
He encouraged young Nigerians to build on the gains of the 2019 election campaigns for youth inclusion in politics and dare to take more elective offices in the upcoming elections, in order to move the country forward.
He however condemned the action of few of the youths whom he said place personal interests above the collective interest of political revolution and sold out to major political parties during the 2019 Political struggle.
He equally condemned what he described as the ‘weaponization’ of hunger and deliberate suppression of the poor masses, in other to maintain political hegemony, by the political elites.
Asked if he thinks the youths can take total control of political leadership, Ikubese reiterated his strong believe in the possibility of an eruption of a youthful and resourceful political class.
He also advised the old politicians who have stayed longer than necessary in the system to give off power voluntarily and honourably before it may be too late.
