Sowore knocks Nigerian youths, says they only want to be PAs to politicians

According to a report by DAILY POST, Omoyele Sowore, the former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 election, has stirred controversy with his recent remarks regarding the political aspirations of Nigerian youths.

In a candid interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Sowore expressed disappointment, suggesting that many young Nigerians are content with seeking roles as Personal Assistants (PAs) to political leaders rather than aspiring to leadership positions themselves.

The discussion arose in the wake of the swearing-in ceremony of 44-year-old Bassirou Diomaye Faye as the President of Senegal, an event attended by numerous African dignitaries in Dakar.

Reflecting on this development, Sowore highlighted what he perceives as a lack of ambition among Nigerian youth in the political arena.

According to Sowore, Nigerian youths appear more inclined towards what he terms “tag-along” roles, such as seeking appointments as special assistants to governors or senators, rather than actively pursuing leadership roles.

He lamented the absence of a clear aspiration among young Nigerians to assume leadership positions and called for a shift in mindset.

Asserting the need for Nigerian youths to be more daring and proactive in politics, Sowore emphasized the importance of replicating the new dispensation witnessed in Senegal.

He urged young Nigerians to challenge the status quo and seize opportunities for meaningful political engagement.
