Go and rest, let the youths takeover, Ooni tells Nigerian leaders

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has advised political leaders in Nigeria to go home, rest and leave governance for youths who he described as the “owners of the country.”

The monarch also commended youths in the country who he said make up 60 percent of the country’s population, for keeping the nation together because of the activities they engage themselves in.

The Ooni gave the charge Tuesday during the launch of a N100 million Professional Chair and N10billion Endowment Fund for the Michael and Cecilia Ibru University, MCIU, Agbarha-Otor, Delta State. Speaking to the leaders, the monarch said: “Youths of this nation owns this country.

This country does not belong to the leaders and elders of this nation. Let the youths takeover, go and rest and rest very well.” He stated that it is about time for the youths to have a sense of ownership by rising up to what belongs to them naturally, saying, “Very soon, the youths would start claiming what belongs to them as this country does not belong to anybody else except the youths.

“The youths of this country should please come and take charge. We should all come together and say enough is enough. You cannot tell us what we should be doing, we would tell you what we want you to do.”
