Nigerian Singer/Instrumentalist, Seun Kuti shared his thoughts on the idealogy that the youths are the solution to Nigeria’s problem that is currently trending.
While most people believe that the way forward for Nigeria is for Youths to fix the country, Seun Kuti doesn’t agree.
In a Lengthy post he made on Instagram, he explained why. He wrote;
“Are the youths meant to fix the education? What is the ministry of education for? The youths have to fight injustice of the government?
What are the judiciary and legislators for? The youths are meant to protect their communities, what are the security forces there for?
What we have in Nigeria are lazy elders who after seizing all the commonwealth and political power to build our nation are now asking the YOUTHS to do their job.
Youth is nothing but a demographic, YOUTH IS NOT AN IDEOLOGY. The people of Nigeria must never fall for the young vs old narrative, no it’s we THE PEOPLE v the establishment and its beneficiaries. Shikena.
