2023: We Won’t Vote Any Presidential Candidate Above Age 60 — Nigerian Youths

Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, members of the Nigerian Youth Union, NYU, on Wednesday, advised Nigerians on the qualities to look out for before adopting or voting for any politician to become Nigeria’s next president.

The youths also vowed to reject any presidential candidate who is above 60 years of age.

NYU President, Mr Chinedu Obasi, who made this known during the first national non-elective convention of the organisation in Abuja, said that the people must search for the very best, without mundane considerations in picking the country’s next leader.

According to him, such a leader must be below 60 years of age and should be prepared to show his antecedents in the area of youth inclusiveness.

Speaking on the theme of the programme, ‘Towards Effective Youth Inclusion in Nigeria’s Governance’, Obasi said: “In exactly 12 months’ time, another opportunity will beckon for Nigerians to elect their leaders. The 2023 general election is therefore a golden opportunity for Nigerian youths to take a stand and reclaim the country. 2023 is our time to make it or mar our chances of engendering inclusive and purposeful governance.

“As minimum criteria, we expect and declare that the next President of Nigeria must be below 60 years of age and should be prepared to show by his antecedents how far he has reflected or factored youths in his leadership vision and accomplishments.”
