Despite the plea by President Muhammadu Buhari while signing the ‘Not Too Young to Run’ bill, on Nigerian youths not to contest presidential race against him, youths have commenced move to unseat the President come 2019.

The youths, however, said they were set to mobilise young Nigerian to actualise ‘young President’ in 2019 and make a national declaration in Abuja to unveil their Presidential candidate for 2019 and fresh people in all positions of power.

Nigerian youths under the auspices of Intellectual Revolution Group (IRG) made this declaration at Arewa House, Kaduna on Saturday while inaugurating its state executives and zonal leadership for the North West zone.

Inaugurating the zonal executive, the National Coordinator of IRG, Salaudeen Lukman said, 2019 must usher in ‘Young President’ with proven record of purpose and determination, adding that “old age politician who have milked our dear nation dry must go to rest and assume advisers role. Its a sin to rule their generation and still be forcing themselves on our generation.

“Our resolve includes mobilizing our teeming youth to form strong ideological political movement that will support ‘Young President’ come 2019.

“We are aware of ‘First Force’, the Assembly of liars and deceivers, likewise the ‘Second Force’ the assembly of looters, suspects on trial for corruption and other criminal related matters, we equally believe that the newly formulated ‘Third Force’ is a gathering of aggrieved First and Second Force, expired political elites who are desperate to cajole Nigerians again to smuggle themselves into power.

“Therefore, we rise to appear as ‘Fresh Force’ with total commitment to birth A New Nigeria. We declare recycling of politicians on position of power unacceptable hence we call for its end.

“Today we have just inaugurated all state executives for the North West States and the zonal leadership, we shall replicate same for other five zones and continue to mobilise young Nigerian to actualise ‘Young President’ come 2019 with national declaration soonest in Abuja to unveil our Presidential candidate for 2019 and fresh people in all positions of power.

The youths leader continued when he said that “The rating of our dear nation as poorest in the world and incessant killing of innocent citizens by terrorist Boko Haram and Fulani herdsmen, massive looting of our commonwealth and misplacement of our priority is a pointer to note the failure of government of old generation in old Nigeria from their primary responsibility .

“We have observed in the recent the coalition of old retired military personnel who are imposing themselves on Nigerians under the guise of repentant Democrats to rule us by force again even when they lack innovative programmes and idea to improve our dear citizenry’s living standard.

“This necessitates our rise as young Nigerians with passion to make Nigeria work again by taking the bull by the horn and champion the course for New Nigeria.

“The new Nigeria of our dream is a great united Nation where Justice, equity, transparency, rule of law and prosperity for all irrespective of religion, tribe or background will be hallmark. We believe it is achievable with commitment of all young Nigerians to this New Nigeria project.

“We are sincerely worried with level of decay in our education, poor economy, obsolete infrastructures, arrogant disobedience of court orders, disrespect for rule of law, unstable power supply, nepotism and favoritism characterized in our dear nation day to day activities of government, the increased in crime rate and uncontrollable rise in number of out of school children, including almajiris call for holistic rescue of our future.

“It is unfortunate that people who enjoyed free and qualitative education with standard infrastructures in Nigeria those days are the ones making education unaffordable for us today.

“We have resolved to step up beyond social media rants, nagging and complains every time, hence we resolved to get to work in the spirit of way forward to take full control of our future, we hereby commence the Run For a New Nigeria”, Lukman said.

The Zonal and state executives, however, took oath of office and were given the mandate to go and mobilise youths in their thousands from their respective state for their new course. (The Nation)
