Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, is advocating for younger people to take up the reins of leadership in the forthcoming general elections, saying that only young leaders can carve a path to posterity.
Bello stated this during the North-central zonal launching of The Nigeria Agenda in Minna.
Bello, who was represented by the Commissioner for Environment and Forestry, Mohammed Zakari, said the Nigeria Agenda should set the pace by recruiting young people with energy, vision and intellect, who will be able to chart a course for the nation.
“The concept of The Nigeria Agenda is coming together to speak as one in unity, using our strength for the development of the nation.
“We need to look towards younger people with lots of energy, lots of zeal; young people who will be adventurous in craving a path to posterity”, he said.
The Convener of The Nigeria Agenda, Alhaji Ahmad Sirjo, said the Nigeria Agenda is all about creating awareness about Nigeria and developing the shared value of equity, fairness, inclusion, unity and peace.
“The Nigeria Agenda will be provisional in providing a national leader who will understand the exigencies of leadership in the 21st century.”
He said that after the launching of the agenda, there would be campaigns at the local government areas and wards, to create a conversation around values that are core to development, peace and unity.
Former Secretary to the Niger State Government, Professor Mohammed Kuta Yahaya, commended the agenda, saying the country needs new narratives and new thinking, adding that The Nigeria Agenda will lay the foundation for a new Nigeria which Nigerians ought to have.
Yahaya reiterated the governor’s stand in giving leadership to the youths, urging the Agenda to harvest their strength and encourage them to harness their energies into looking for solutions that will improve national harmony.
The group behind The Nigeria Agenda had earlier paid a courtesy visit to the Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello, informing him about the Agenda and its objectives.
