”Good Leadership Is Not Determined By Age” – Adams Oshiomole Tells Nigerian Youths
APC National chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, has told Nigerian youths not to be under the illusion that good leadership comes with age. In a chat with Channels TV, Oshiomole advised them not to harbour the mentality that their age alone qualifies them for leadership.
He has this to say:
“I don’t want our young people to wonder under this illusion that age is a quality, just because you are young therefore or you assume you will do better. What will count is exposure and ability to lead.
We need to look at our income distribution and see whether there is a correlation between age and wealth. You are not supposed to start learning leadership with human lives, you are supposed to start learning how to manage, how to superintend a system.
Not just too young to run for political office; but also not too young to run a business; not too young to run an enterprise. Look at what is happening around the world, the founders of Apple and Facebook, these were very young people; they were not too young to become billionaires.
“If you look at the world richest people today they are not the oldest people. There are a lot of young men under 40, under 30 who are multi-billionaires who have overtaken Bill Gates on account of their intelligence and resourcefulness that is one explanation.”
In another development, Oshiomhole alledged that the former president, Goodluck Jonathan, introduced vote buying in Nigeria
In a chat with Channels Television, ‘Roadmap,’ this is what he said:
“President Jonathan started this massive vote buying in Nigeria and the Media must playback and do the proper interview and proper investigation to discover the origin of vote buying,” he said.
