The Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has said Nigerian youths have excelled in every sphere of the economy they have been involved.

He stated this when he received a delegation of Not-Too-Young-To-Run Movement which visited him in Abuja on Thursday barely 24 hrs after President Muhammadu Buhari said that most Nigerian youths want everything free without doing anything. Osinbajo, however, challenged youths in the country to strive to acquire experience before seeking to occupy political offices in the years ahead.

The Vice President said that issues of governance needed to be planned deliberately as making women to participate in politics and issues of girl-child needed to be taken seriously and addressed. According to him, this is because half of the women that should be participating in politics did not have the know-how.

He said: “Just like you have to train before you can become a pilot, so it is for politics.i think that whatever age a person chooses to run should not matter; what should matter is the preparedness of the person because elective positions require some skills. The vice president said that people stole the nation’s money with impunity and short-changed citizens.
