Plateau Guber: Nigerian youths react as PDP fields 75-year-old Jeremiah Useni


ACF chairman, Jerry Useni

Many Nigerian youths have lambasted older politicians for their inability to know when it’s time to hand the leadership mantle to the youths.

This comes after news that 75-year-old Jeremiah Useni, has emerged as the governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) for Plateau state.

Jeremiah Useni, who was a military governor of Bendel state, 34years ago reportedly polled 1,018 votes to defeat 12 other candidates at the party’s primary.

Many of the youth commenting on the issue, have argued that it was ‘hypocritical ‘ for PDP to field a man as old as Useni, after complaining bitterly about president Muhammadu Buhari’s age.
