A former Cross River State governor, Donald Duke has called on Nigerian youths to play important roles in governance and leadership in the country.
While speaking on Tuesday, at the Nigeria Symposium for Young and Emerging Leaders in Terra Kulture, Duke stated that Nigerian youths have become so distant from governance that they now behave like tenants in their own country.
“Godfatherism grows out of mentorship. They are there to set you on a path, but do not let them enslave you.
Right now, Nigerian youths have the numbers to make positive changes in this country, and they should use it. There is a lot of contempt in government now because there are no consequences to wrong actions by the government. The failure in the country is the youths’ inability to aspire for better lives and situations for themselves. They behave like tenants in their own country” Duke said.
