Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has appealed to Nigerian youths to take more interest in governance in the country rather than relocating abroad especially to Canada at the slightest opportunity.
He made his views known at ‘The Platform’ which was organized by the Covenant Christian Centre on May 1, 2021.
He said that Canada had a glass ceiling unlike Nigeria.
He said: “Don’t succumb to despondency, there is a lot to hail in this country. There is a lot to frustrate you, a lot to want to make you give up and pick that visa and go to Canada,” the governor told the youths.
“I know it (Canada) is a popular destination but you know what? There is also a glass ceiling in Canada. When you get to the top of it, you will now discover there is a glass ceiling there. This is the place where there is no glass ceiling, let us work towards making it a better place.”
He went further to say: Even if your search is a regime change in a democracy, there is only one what for regime change in a democracy, you work towards it.
“Another election is going to come if you do not like what APC is doing. Organise, stop agonising, organise against the party. Link up with others who are organising and then kick the APC out of office and put people that you think we do better not creating a situation of anarchy.”
The governor urged young Nigerians to also hold those in their wards and communities accountable, instead of engaging in what he termed as “Twitter revolution.”
