Politicians have been urged to stop using youths as thugs during party’s activities, noting that they are the future leaders of the country.
Oriade Local Government Chairmanship aspirant, Akinwale Lawanson gave the charge during a ward meeting in Erè-Ìjèsà.
He said politicians who engage other people’s children for violence often keep their own children away in safe havens.
“Enough of using other people’s children as political thugs and keeping ours in safe havens.
“We know what is right for young people without their input or the courtesy of asking for their opinions,” he stated.
He urged young people to continue to engage political leaders in order to ensure development in their areas.
“The young people must remember that the future is influenced by the present and the past. The present is a legacy of the past, handed over by other generations.
“This legacy is a product of hard work, successes, failures and experience. It must be preserved.
“The youth must understand that today’s leaders are tomorrow’s seniors and the record of their leadership will also become a legacy to another generation
Lawanson assured that he is ready to bring political leadership back to the people and also engage in infrastructural development and hit the ground running as soon as possible if given the opportunity to be the next chairman.
