Don?t leave Nigeria to those messing it up - Obasanjo tells Nigerian youths

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged Nigerian youths not to leave the country to “those who are messing it up.”


The former Nigerian leader spoke in Abeokuta, Ogun State, at an event tagged: “OBJ @85 Free Keke Programme,” where 85 tricycles (Keke) were distributed to beneficiaries as part of the activities marking the former president’s 85th birthday. 


He appealed to the youths to hold their future in their hands, with a firm belief that “today is their day”, as against the famous cliché  that “youths are the leaders of tomorrow.”


“If the youth leave things to those who are messing it up, and who are saying they are the leaders of tomorrow, they will never have that tomorrow.”he said
