  1. This is true. We all feel the same way you feel Sir. In a country of millions of people, some group of persons have decided to be recycling themselves in positions of governance refusing the young ones to come up.
    They are not allowed the youth who are stronger to do the jobs
    They cannot cheat nature, since a man must get weak as the year goes by
    Please they should retire and give chance to a more viable stronger youth groups

  2. It is saddened to see all these old men sleeping at the national assembly plenary, we (youths) need to rise up to the task and retire those old men back to their house because they contribute nothing and they don’t want to leave the stage but we need to retire them by Force.

  3. May be. Nigerians youths need to come together and form a party of our own because some of this old papa won’t allow us to contest under the famous party we all know, the amount that they will be selling their forms won’t be affordable for the youths. Let’s start the revolution now by not allow those old papa to return back to the NASS and other elected political posts.

  4. U are right Sir but we are nw in a age were no room for the young to grow anymore except those who have been in power for ages thts naija for you

  5. They want to eat it every thing themselves,greed.
    That’s what’s called greed,no amount of money would be enough for them.

  6. The youths can’t cheat the nation
    They Cannot Cheat Nature, Since A Man Must Get Weak As The Year Goes By
    Please They Should Retire And Give Chance To A More Viable Stronger Youth Groups.
