Governance Is Not About Age But Heart- Oshiomhole
Erstwhile National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has warned against relating political participation to age and gender. Information Guide Nigeria
Oshiomhole frowned at this at a public presentation of a book entitled: ‘Politics that works’, written by Babafemi Ojudu and Alex James. As reported by Daily Trust, in Oshiomhole words: “It is very dangerous to reduce governance and issues of government in Nigeria to age, and even the question of gender. When we are talking about gender issues, what drives a woman is not the skirt or blouse that she wears, it is our heart. “I want us to move our heart away from what we hear that when the people are young, things will be fine. The Vice President and I served at a committee before I was brought to where I am.
“Did we really find any correlation between the values, the ideal, competence and performance of people who occupied executive position and those who occupied legislative houses?
“The views they parroted, the decisions they took, and their idea of society; was it in correlation with their age and those views? I haven’t found any.
“I have found elderly people who care and believe Nigeria can do better and they have idea of how it can be managed. I also have young people who believe life is a super highway. jamb results
