There is a saying that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. As for me, I stand to contest this notion.I never knew that tomorrow is endless during my primary school days when we did sang that we children were the leaders of tomorrow.I am presently in the 3rd decade of life in which I have never seen any of my age group in the position of taking the mantle of leadership of my dear country Nigeria. The set of people who ruled my country during the 1970s era are still the one in government.I continue to ask myself this question, how will a nation progress and succeed when there is no successional plan? Successional plan is so crucial for any nation that has a vision.The long term vision can only be realise when each generation train and groom the incoming ones so as to prevent a generational gap.
Recently, British Prime Minister has appointed a 39 year old Olukemi Olufunto Badenoch a Minister in his cabinet.If someone who has lived in the Uk for 23 years was able to be a minister, what is the excuse of my country? Nigeria who has a lot of brilliant youthful population that they can tap from their wealth of knowledge.
If I stand to be correct, the recent Ministerial list sent to the house of assembly doesn’t include those who are in their 3rd and 4th decade of life.
Am I the leader of tomorrow?as for me, If anybody tell me this, I do reply that I am the leader of today who is ready to shoulder the responsibility of doing my part to make the country a better one.
