OLUSEGUN Obasanjo, a former president of Nigeria, claims to be the father of Nigerian youths who are frustrated owing to the country’s economic downturn.
The former president asserted in a viral video on social media during a discussion with young people under the direction of Charly Boy, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa.
Charly Boy, claiming to be the president of disgruntled Nigerian youths, asked Obasanjo to offer solutions to the youths’ current plight.
The singer claims that the rising unemployment is why young people, including himself, are increasingly frustrated.
Obasanjo blamed Nigerian leaders for the economic woes, saying it is not the fault of God but those in authority.
According to him, the only way to enforce change is to establish better government through good leaders.
He expressed confidence that the youths are capable of bringing the desired change, saying “there is nobody who will do it other than the youths”.
“You are the president of frustrated Nigerian youths and I am their father.
“That we are poor and frustrated is not a fault of God but the choice of our leaders and if you are going to change that, change the situation, you have to change leadership. Pure and simple”, Obasanjo added.
