A former head of state, General Ibrahim Babangida, has canvassed for a power shift from older generation of leaders for new ones.
According to Babangida, the older generation of leaders in Nigeria have become analogue in a digital age.
The former military president spoke on the issue while receiving leaders of a new political party, The New Nigeria, at his hilltop mansion in Minna.
He recalled moves by him and some other like minded people while he was in power in 1989, to consider the possibility of handing over the leadership to younger generation, but said the proposal was frustrated by older generation of leaders.
With the situation in Nigeria, Babangida said there is the urgent need to support the younger generation to use their digital knowledge to move Nigeria forward.
“The older generation must give way for the new one. We have become analogue but this is a digital age; so the young people should be supported to use their digital knowledge to move the country forward,” he stated.Please subscribe to our newsletter
