Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged youth in the country to democratically snatch power from old politicians.
Obasanjo said since the old leaders are unwilling to relinquish power, it was time for the youth to wrest power from old hands.
He said this in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital at the Youth Governance Dialogue organised to mark this year International Youth Day during the weekend.
The former President urged the youth to work towards grabbing, stating that it is never given on platter of gold.
He urged the youth to stop complaining and get involved in leadership and national decision-making.
“I joined politics from the top. The only position I contested for in Nigeria is the Presidency, but I had track record of achievements which led to that.
“Nobody will choose you, you have to choose yourself. Why should you have to become president at the age of 40? Why can’t you become president at the age of 35? Why can’t you become president at the age of 30?
