Veteran musician, Eedris Abdulkareem, has called on Nigerian youths to come out and contest for elective positions in next year’s general election.
Eedris, who was reacting to a statement credited to former president, Olusegun Obasanjo that the older generation should step aside for the younger ones, warned Nigerian youths to avoid joining the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He stated that, he supports Obasanjo’s statement, despite being part of the problems bedeviling the nation.
According to him, 2023 is strictly for the youths, as he promised to support any youth under any party except the APC in 2023.
His statement reads,
If you’re a youth and ready to contest for any position in 2023 please come out.
The most important thing is avoid All Progressives Party, APC. Come out whether for presidency , House of Representatives just like Sowore, Yul Edochie.
I’m going to support you all, it’s time for the youth to take over just like Obasanjo said it’s time for the youth.
Although we know Obasanjo is part of our problems but he has said the truth. Come out everybody let’s support anybody that’s a youth, strictly for the youth in 2023.
