The Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, has asked the Nigerian youths to rise in defence of the country to save it from total collapse.
According to the governor, it is high time Nigerian youths joined politics and be part of the decision making across all political space in the land.
Matawalle stated this in Kaduna on Monday, shortly after receiving an award of ‘Icon of Youth and Student Development’ from the leadership of Northern Youths and Students Forum.
The governor was represented at the occasion by a House of Representatives member representing Gusau/Tsafe Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, Kabir Amadu Mai Palace.
He said, “I am a youth like you and it’s high time we participate more in politics. We have no reason to hid. This country is about to collapse and the only way forward is for us the youths to rescue this country.
“There is a need for our youth to involve themselves more in politics. If we look at the population of this country, the youths are the majority. So, it is high time for more youths to come out and participate in governance so they can move the country forward.
In Nigerian politics, once you call on youth to participate, the first question he will ask you is where will I get the money.
But, they should put it in mind that they need to join a political party and be active from where they move to occupy offices
