Bola Tinubu, a senior member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has told Nigerian youngsters that they will succeed him as president.
The #NotTooYoungToRun movement was born out of the desire for millennials to hold key political positions in the country.
Tinubu advised the youths to make place for the old when he visited Lamidi Adeyemi, the Alaafin of Oyo, at the palace on Sunday.
"You won’t allow the elderly ones to pass and you haven’t become president. What if you become president, will you chase us out of town?” Tinubu asked.
“You will grow old and become president. But I will become the president first.”
Bola Tinubu had declared his intention to contest for the presídency earlier in January when he met with President Muhammadu Buhari.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
