It’s shameful old, bullion van politicians not leaving the stage for youths – Pastor Bakare

The Serving Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, Pastor Tunde Bakare, has decried the refusal of old Nigerians to leave the political stage for the youths.

Bakare blamed the challenges facing the nation on those he described as “moneybags and bullion van politicians,” whom he accused of wanting to be in power without considering the younger ones.

He described as a shame, the attitude of older Nigerian politicians, who he said have refused to give the youth a chance in leadership positions.

The Pastor spoke on Saturday at the launch of an autobiography, “Footsteps of a Rebel’, written by the Babanla Adinni of Egbaland, Chief Tayo Sowunmi, in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, to mark his 80th birthday.

While delivering a speech tagged ‘Worthy Nation Building Legacies By The Older Generation of Nigerians’, Bakare called for inter-generational re-integration between older and younger generations.

This, according to Bakare, is part of efforts to rebuild the Nigerian nation.

He maintained that, “It is a shame that while younger generations are taking over leadership in other countries, older generation refuses to leave the stage in Nigeria.”

He condemned the alleged sidestepping of the youth, saying this has hampered the development of Nigeria.

“The nation’s development has suffered because of the marginalisation of the youth and the progressives who abandoned politics,” Bakare said.

While calling for generational reintegration from the households, the Ogun indigene called for the embracing of cultural values to foster nation building.

He also suggested mentoring and leadership development for the younger generation.
