President of Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide and Presidential aspirant in the 2019 general election of Federal Republic of Nigeria, Aremo Dotun Hassan, Esq. has described the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari to re-contest in 2019 as a clarion call for the youths in the to “rally themselves as first force to beat”.

Hassan stated this in Lagos while reacting to the declaration of the president, urging youths to be ready to upturn the status quo of the elite politics.

He said, “”It is no surprise to witness the much awaited Mummadu Buhari’s 2nd Term Declaration today 9th April, 2018, which is no breaking news to many, but a clarion call indication to the Nigerian youths to rally themselves as first force to beat.

“This drive inevitably remains a necessity to challenge the status quo and ensure a positive paradigm shift away from the past political unethical processes.

“It is most convincing that we(youths)can upturn the tide come 2019,beyond the measure of politics and negative antics of the present ruling class, who sees no value in our generation, but to many this is the only available opportunity to correct the long decayed wounds of corruption and ill governance ravaging the system from precolonial era till date, hence our quest for FREEDOM”.

Hassan also queried the decision of Buhari to re-contest saying that his(Buhari) records in the past three years have shown clearly that he does not deserve another term.

He said, “We need to query the decision of Mr President for 2nd term come 2019 by analytically looking into his records of governance for the past three years on, which to many has achieved far less than the people’s expectations.

“For the fact that it is vividly clear to the blind that the APC/Buhari-led administration has totally derailed and lost the goodwill he berthed on in 2015. Critically speaking this regime waisted over two and half years in search plans and political navigation raider without anything to show for it, ranging from the first six month of no NEC composition, while monies are been appropriated illicitly without legislative consideration, while still wobbling and fumbling around. We were stocked in a state of confusion on the ill-health saga of Mr President, the profuse fears of insecurity ravaged all nooks of the nation. The herdsmen and Boko Haram had unfettered access to kill, maim and destroy, not loosing sight on the worst economic downturn, where we lost the value rate of our Naira. The fuel price was deceitfully increased from N97 to N145 per litre,while still starving us, yet they wanted to hike it to N200 under the lies of fuel subsidy removal which we are still paying till date, if not for our collective cries and frontal agitations in the social media, on the street and other available platforms of ventilation of our plights, further agony and intimidating venom was slammed on Nigerians in the face of abject poverty and failure.

“Today we are made to beg for what they promised us abinitio, we saw how power was recklessly abused to its highest peak,today one cannot confidently say one substantial achievement of this government, hence we must not reinforce failure.

“Nigeria deserve a new breed of servant leaders and well grounded experienced president who understand the vital needs of the people across the regional lines and beyond rhytorics and politics”.

The YCYWW concluded by urging every Nigerians to work hard to ensure that the country’s electoral process is sanitized and transparency, credibility and fairness are injected into it.
