The call for Nigerian millennials in politics has never been stronger like it is today as the frustration with the old guard of leaders gets stronger and stronger. With numerous campaigns and movements going on in this regard, the Not Too Young to Run bill to push for constitutional reform, the Our Mumu Don Do by the courageous Charley Boy, influential voices, civil societies, foreign organizations etc., this is a window of opportunity that we don’t know when next it might come in this decade or the next. More young people are beginning to understand that politics can cost them the fun of their youth if not checked and the anger is building up daily.
To take up leadership in Nigeria from the old guard there must be some level of expectations from the millennials in politics and those who have such plans in the years to come. We must raise the bar far above the outgoing leaders kept it, we cannot afford to go back to the doldrums of failed leadership that defies universal and global expectation from leaders. Above all, millennials in politics must build capacity, we must be ready to answer questions about the future today and address them so we can get ready when challenges come. The battle will be even tougher but with capacity and self-development and strong institutions, we can/ will overcome.
