Amechi warns youths against unlimited enslavement by old generation leaders – Nexus News
First republic Minister of Aviation, Chief Mbazulike Amechi has warned Nigerian youths to work hard and reclaim the country to avert perpetual enslavement by old generation leaders.
Speaking with a youth group under the auspices of Southern and Middle Belt Youth Coalition, who paid him consultative visit in his country home, Ukpor in Anambra State, yesterday, Amechi emphasized that what is important to Nigerians at the moment is an unselfish leadership.
He implored that youths should set aside differences and de-emphasize party politics by looking out for competence and capacity of individuals.
He further advised that youths should reclaim their country; otherwise the old generation of leaders will keep them in boundary. He emphasized that they must come to a level where they are prepared to die to attain the dream country they want.
The elder statesman recalled how he along with his colleagues, fought the colonial masters to a standstill based on justice and equity for all Nigerians.
Earlier, leader of the group, Prince Okenwa Okpala, raised concerns that the country is presently in a bad shape and earnestly needs leadership with a sense of direction.

He blamed the two major political parties in the country, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC), of disregarding the rule of equity and fairness in selecting their presidential flag bearers against all expectations.
Okpala, however, noticed that the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, is enjoying an unprecedented support from all Nigerians, especially the youths, because of the belief that he has the capacity to turn things around in the nation.
He said the visit was to solicit for advice from the foremost nationalist on how the youths can rightfully take over governance of the country.
He promised that their meeting would afford them the opportunity to learn, from the elder statesman, how fairness and equity can be attained in the governance structure of Nigeria.
