Tinubu speaks on handing over power to young Nigerians

APC chieftain, Bola Tinubu has advised Nigerian leaders to handover power to a vibrant younger generation.

The former governor of Lagos State disclosed this while receiving an honorary degree from Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida University, Lapai, Niger State.

He said: “Education is the light of a nation, the lamp that helps us see where we are, and the path we must take to realise our greatness. To educate a generation is to secure that path and that greatness.

“Indeed, all of us must continue to do all within our capacities, individually and collectively, so that we can direct the ship of state with a steady helm and hand over a vibrant and strengthened nation to these young leaders assembled before us.

“Our young people deserve the best of what we can give them. Founded in 2005, this university is dedicated to that excellent and correct purpose.

“We must all board the train of progress; otherwise, it will pass us by. Our universities must embrace innovation and new technology so as to equip our talented youth with the skills for progress in the 21st Century.

“This way, we break the fetters of underdevelopment and expand the boundaries of economic, intellectual and moral growth.

“And finally, to you young people, you have much to learn. Some of the learning will be in the classroom of this university. Some will be in the classroom of life. Never stop learning.

“Yet, you also have much to offer. Do not be afraid to dare to be great. You are the destiny and true greatness of this nation. Never forget it.”
