One of the youthful figures jostling for the job of President Muhammadu Buhari has promised to destroy the old values which have caused the country setbaks.
Ahmed Buhari, the initiator of Ahmed Buhari Youth Movement, has said that he will kill ‘cabalism’ if he wins the 2019 presidential elections.
Buhari, who was speaking with journalists on Sunday in Ilorin, also explained that his interest in vying for the office of the president of Nigeria was informed by the need to have a generational change in the leadership of the country.
The geologist by training, noted that the youth had lost hope in the current system of governance which had created a wide gulf between the young and old generation.
“Most importantly, our involvement is going to be an enlightenment to young people that it is true that we can do something.
“To let them know that the reason we are doing this is because we understand that if we do not allow responsibility to be transferred from one generation to next generation at the right time, a vacuum will be created.
“If this vacuum is created, a lot can go into that vacuum. It could be herdsmen; it could be Boko Haram; it could be kidnapping; it could be baby factory; it could be armed robbery, it could be a lot of things.
“It is because these young people do not feel any need for them to be looking up for something that hope is lost and so we are trying to revamp young people to understand that they have to participate in politics.
“While they participate in politics, they shouldn’t make money politics a front burner for them. They should be more concerned about how they will even support aspirants so that when they get to the office, those aspirants will be answerable to them.
“This will kill totally the whole idea of cabalism and see how we can have aspirants who will emerge and become answerable to those people who elected them because if you do support an aspirant, he is going to come back to you and support you, not by giving you the money you gave him, but by giving you the best of democracy.
“What we mean is that we want to have a country that would be formed on a united ground.
“United ground in the sense that no matter where you come from, regardless of your ethnicity; regardless of your religion; regardless of your social status; regardless of your political party; ideological affiliations; regardless of gender; regardless of your age; you will want to be part of a new Nigeria.
“The new Nigeria that we are looking for is new Nigeria that every one of us would claim without mentioning where we are from.
“We want a new Nigeria where there won’t be a discussion on state of origin, quota system and all of those things that always tend to divide us will be eradicated,” he said.
