“Therefore,we are no longer comfortable with youth being leaders of tomorrow,our time is now and we must take it through legal and constitutional means.
“If we the youths are determined,we can do it. We can takeover government and do great wonders. We have the population of voters that can make it happen. This does not mean that we will jettisons the wise counsel of the old.
