Former President Obasanjo is worried about the anger and frustration of youths.
He said if the youth’s anger is not well-managed, it could lead to an “explosion”.
Obasanjo spoke yesterday at the Youth Governance Dialogue organised by the Youth Development Centre, an arm of the Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library (OOPL), Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital.
He lamented that youths were not getting the required help.
The former president noted that while his generation had “limitless opportunities but no facilities” in their time, the youth of today “have facilities but little or no opportunities”.
He cited the insurgency in the Northeast, the separatist agitators in the Southeast and militancy in the Niger Delta region as manifestations of anger and frustrations from disillusioned youths.
Obasanjo warned that should anger of youths erupt, there might be no limit to the extent it could spread.
