    Yemi Osinbajo Urges Nigerians’ Youths To Involve In Politics To Make Desired Change

    Yemi Osinbajo

    Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has stated that for Nigerian youths to make a change in the nation, they have to get involved in politics

    Yemi Osinbajo said the only way Nigeria can be transformed is largely dependent on the actions and decisions of those who occupy public offices hence the reason young people in Nigeria must get involved in politics.

    The Vice President said this on Wednesday at a virtual forum where he interacted with Nigerian Fellows of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders.

    He said:

    You need to go the extra length if you are not already involved, get involved in politics while a lot can be achieved in civil society, the government still holds the ace in terms of capacity and resources to bring social goods to the largest numbers.

    Recalling his days in civil society, Yemi Osinbajo stated that it was only through the public office that he was able to achieve the scale of change required to make a difference.

    Without a public office, I would have remained a pressure group activist, I would have done some nice things, but I wouldn’t have been able to make the changes that my country required.

    “Besides, being deciders instead of pressure groups at the table in policy formulation are hugely different positions. The consummation of our great ideas to transform our societies ultimately will depend on “those politicians” as we sometimes derisively describe them.

    The Vice President noted that Nigeria alongside African nations can’t afford to have its best minds and most committed social activists remain only in the civil space.

    No, we simply cannot afford it, you have to get involved in politics. You have to be in the position to make the difference on the scale that is required.”

    “There would be many challenges even in the winning or getting heard in politics but I want to say to you that it should be an objective that you should set for yourselves, to get involved at whatever level of politics so that you can make the difference on the scale that is required.
