The Youths are Trying than The Elders……President Jonathan Reveals
President Goodluck Jonathan, has commended the works of the younger generations especially those doing well in the entertainment sector and other spheres that has been bringing glory to the land.
The President gave made this assertion recently while speaking at the launch of the Youth Employment in Agriculture Programme at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, young people in the movie industry and sports, have brought glory to Nigeria but the older generations are the problem of the country thereby insulting themselves in politics.
He stated that instead of the older people in politics to help create an enabling environment for the younger ones, they are busy fighting each other.
In his words, "For the Nigerian young men and women, those who we have seen today and the ones outside there, we appreciate and commend you because anything that you are involved, you bring glory to this country. Anything that the old people like us are involved in, it is always problems. Young people are involved in sports, soccer, athletics and so on, and within the period that I have been here as Vice President and President, they have always been bringing glory to us."
"Young people are involved in the movie, popularly called Nollywood, and this continues to bring glory to us. Young people are involved in music, like D-Banj, and they always continue to bring glory to us. But see politics that old people like us are involved in, we continue to quarrel and abuse ourselves everyday and create problems for innocent Nigerians. So, we believe that the future of this country is in the hands of young people. The young Nigerians will surely take us to where we want to be. One day, you will take us to the moon. I believe in the young, creative and talented people. Surely, we will create enabling environment for you because you stand for the future of this country and you will make this country great.” the president added.
