“Dear young Nigerian, we adults will not hold the stage forever, you own the future. Keep moving to fulfil the dream of a Nigeria and Africa that empower all without discrimination, creating political, economic, and cultural development. Your efforts will not be in vain, ” he wrote.
Adeyemi also advised the older generation of leaders to set aside prejudices, and create an atmosphere where potentials can be allowed to flourish.
“Those of us in the older generation need to think ahead about our legacy,” he said. “Africans have suffered a lot through history. We have a duty to rise above prejudice and selfishness, to create an environment where potential can flourish, and where leadership is accountable and poised for service.”
