Paul Okoye, a well-known Nigerian musician has declared that Nigeria’s leaders of the future are the country’s elders, not its youth.

The musician, better known by his stage name Rudeboy, posted the comment on his Instagram account as he was thinking about the situation of African leadership, particularly in Nigeria.

He expressed regret for what young Nigerians in the West African country would have to face in the future, as the proverb “Youth are the leaders of tomorrow” is being replaced by elderly as the nation’s leaders.

In Africa, particularly Nigeria, wrote Paul Okoye. Future leaders will be the elders. Acquire that with you.
