2019 Election: Governorship Aspirant Lambastes Buhari For Asking Youths To Wait
Ademola Ogunbanjo, a governorship aspirant in Ogun State, has shown his displeasure over President Muhammadu Buhari stating that Nigerian youths should wait for another year of general election.
It will be recalled that shortly after he signed the ‘Not too young to run’s bill into law, President Buhari had humourosly stated that Nigerian youths should not come out yet but after 2019.
The aspirant while speaking said the nations fresh ideas, arguing that the current administration has been stripped of ideas to pull the country out of the woods.
Ogunbajo who declared his ambition to run for the Ogun State governorship race in Abeokuta on Wednesday revealed that he will be contesting under the umbrella of the Alliance for New Nigeria.
He further explained that the effort to rescue the country required urgency and new approach.
He said, “Can the youth really continue to wait? Wait till when? Wait till after 2019. I did not support such position. The race has to be now.
“The current administration has not been able to pull the country out of the woods. We cannot continue to do things the same way and expect new result.
“Governance currently requires new approach and fresh ideas. We need to invest in the country’s human resource.”
Ogunbanjo said his manifesto was built on three pronged – promotion of knowledge, enterprise and security.
However, he also said if he was voted into office, he would continue with the infrastructural development of the state and provide adequate funding for all sectors such skill acquisition, water supply, power generation, and proper waste management systems among others.
