3 Reasons why Nigeria Needs a Less than 40 year Old President come 2019

The huzz and buzzes about the
forth coming 2019 presidential election in Nigeria has remained a hot topic on all
media platforms in Nigeria as regards to who should run for presidency and who shouldn’t
by party preferences and zoning ticket shuffles but, these funny ambitious Political
parties such as the APC and PDP have not cared well enough for Nigeria’s growth
irrespective of their fake development pledges which they keep making up and
down via diverse media platforms. Why do we here at Gistpark Media regard it as such?

We regard most political parties
in Nigeria as propagandas because all they do is manipulate a Country of over
200 Million people and eat deep into the soul of the Country. What has been
going on is nothing but a reshuffle of old grey-headed men who messed up the
nation during their military ruling days. Many of them have ruled Nigeria as military
leaders and as well as civilians and yet won’t give way for other generations
with greater foresight to take the Nation Nigeria to the promise land because
right now, Nigeria seems to be living barely on her past glory. The 2019
presidential election will speak volumes of the future of Nigeria for the next
20 to 30 years because whatsoever trend or pattern is employed in 2019
elections is what will continue to reign for a given period of time.
If Former President and head of
state Olusegun Obasanjo had
succeeded with his thirst for power way back in 2006-2007 with his propaganda
for a 3rd term tenure structure for the office of the President, by
now, Nigeria would have been in a more dangerous mess as successors of the
office would use their political influences to make office tenures range into 4th
term and more. This is why there is an urgent need for the Nigerian youths to
wake up and flush out the old system of politics as they are nothing but
archaic and no longer result returning as needed in this 21st
century. What our grandfathers used to do in the 80s’ is no longer effective in
the 2000s’.
The so called call for cattle
colonies currently in Nigeria is nothing but an archaic method of curtailing
the terrorist like Fulani herdsmen who have decided that Nigeria would not have
peace of mind in different geopolitical zones. The best method applied by so
many nations is Cattle ranches which in turns yields amazing economic
importance but the old men ruling Nigeria currently wouldn’t think outside the
box or should we say they are nothing but cat-like in stubbornness?
In this article, we have outlined
some key reasons why Nigeria’s Next President should be 40 years of age at maximum
as far as Nigeria’s 2019 Presidential election concerned.
1. Nigeria needs a Political/Leadership Revolution Like never Before:
Nigeria’s current status in terms
of economy, security, Education, statesmanship, politics shows how hungry and
starved the country is with regards to the need for a sincere massive
revolution in all the field aforementioned. But the question remains “can these old tired men with no foresight
anymore offer revolutions to what they messed up?”

You can’t bring out a revolution
for a mess you caused. Revolution always comes about on any matter of interest
when a certain group or category of persons in a given society spear-head the
leading into a new nation. Only the youths of Nigeria can bring about a
revolution that will lead Nigeria to her promise land but how ready the youths
are is key and a bed rock towards a revolution becoming a reality in Nigeria. 
2. Nigeria needs Technology to become Great :
When the founder of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg came to Nigeria
sometime in 2017, it was such an embarrassment that the minster who leads the ministry
in charge of technology and science affairs of the nation was an old man has no
background in anything called Technology. In fact, his first degree has nothing
to do with what he does for a living on an average note. So, how can such a man
deliver the needed ideas to move the country forward technologically? There are
several other ministers of diverse ministries in Nigeria who have no prior
knowledge or needed practical experiences needed by the ministries they lead.
These examples are reasons why
the younger generation that have come to know better how the 21st
century works need to actually take their places. In the 50s’ and 60s’ the
likes of Nnamdi Azikiwe , Herbert Macaulay gave way for the younger ones to
come up and that was when the likes of Gowon, Buhari, IBB, Murtala etc all came
to rule at less than 40 years of age in their time but after all those days, it
is clear that they’ve sworn never to leave power as almost all of them still
manipulates who will rule and who will not. Is this not madness?
3. Nigeria Needs to have new result-birthing Brains :
Naturally, when a human begins to
age, the level of ideas he/she births deteriorates as aging affects the
thinking faculty and this why we have cases such as aged citizens behaving like
little children and needing special care as from 80 and above. So, if this
research and reality exists, what is a 75+ year old doing in the office as a
president of a Nation? Zimbabwe had to show how tired they were by ejecting
Robert Mugabe out of Office by force via the military though they still messed up
by allowing the aged vice president stay back in office. When the aged rule,
there tends to be too much uncalled for loopholes as their manner of approach towards
pressing needs of the people tends to be too slow or ineffective as it is usually
or almost pointless when it finally comes.
In the Nigeria’s forthcoming
Presidential election, Nigerians seriously need to wake up and stop availing
themselves to be brainwashed and finally being led back to 18th
century for no just reason all in the name of considering public office
aspirants with regards to tribe, religion and more.
