You’re not leaders of tomorrow…, Obasanjo tells youths

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Saturday told youths in the country not to allow anybody to tell them that they are leaders of tomorrow, warning, “you are leaders today.”

He urged them to be ambassadors for change, and to also drive the movement for freedom and justice in the country.

He advised them to remain resilient in the fight for educational equity, not relenting on the strides of deploying solutions to tackling the myriads of problems confronting the nation’s education system.

“Please do not let anybody tell you that you are leaders of tomorrow, you are leaders today,” Obasanjo said.

The former president spoke in Lagos at the virtual 2020 Fellowship Graduation Ceremony of the second cohort of ‘Teach for Nigeria Fellows.’

He noted that in Nigeria today, over 14 million children that should be in school are not in school, and are thereby deprived of education.

According to him, Nigerian youths must champion different innovative solutions at every level of the society and across different sectors.
