When you reconsider the slogan that Youths are leaders of tomorrow, then you will imagine why should somebody that has ruled a country like Nigerian before is ruling again and thinking of coming again.

'Age' a problem with African political leaders

It is not a news that most of the presents African leaders especially the of Presidents is always in their late 80s plus.
When you reconsider the slogan that Youths are leaders of tomorrow, then you will imagine why should somebody that has ruled a country like Nigerian before is ruling again and thinking of coming again. This will discourage as a youth in African. When you check many countries in African then statistically, you will agree with me that these certain kind of people in for-front of African politics should think of giving some young once chance.

African politics



When I was young, I was told that old people always think as kids, so if this is true how can these old African Presidents will bring out a reasonable something when they already think like children. Is not time we start considering voting for younger once. 
 
The major problem is that when you as a country has an ageing and  old president, just like your grandma/grandpa at home, he will be thinking more of his state of health than the problem of his country. 

What are the consequences?

Just like what happened in DRC where according to aljeezira news:
Etienne Tshisekedi, the main opposition leader of the Democratic Republic of Congo, has died in Brussels aged 84, according to diplomatic sources.

Tshisekedi was set to take the top post in a transitional council agreed in December under a deal that would pave the way for President Joseph Kabila to leave power in 2017 and refrain from running for a third term.

His death deprives the opposition of its principal figurehead as talks over implementation of the December accord falter.

His son, Felix, is tipped to be named prime minister in a forthcoming power-sharing government.

The Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS) party said he went to Brussels last week for a medical check-up.

Tshisekedi stood up to Mobutu Sese Seko, who ruled the country then known as Zaire, for decades before being overthrown by Rwanda, Uganda and other forces.

A pivotal figure

He was also the most prominent civilian opponent of Laurent Kabila, who took power in 1997, and his son, President Joseph Kabila, who has ruled since 2001.

As such, he was a pivotal figure in DRC, a country whose history has been marked by foreign intervention, civil war, coups and authoritarian rule.

Tshisekedi served as a minister under Mobutu before helping to found the Union for Democracy and Social Progress party (UDPS), the first organised opposition platform in Zaire, in 1982.

He was named prime minister four times in the 1990s as Mobutu contended with pro-democratic currents in the country, but Tshisekedi never lasted more than a few months as he repeatedly clashed with the autocrat.

He finished runner-up to Kabila in the 2011 presidential election. International observers said the vote was marred by fraud and Tshisekedi's supporters have referred to him ever since as the "elected president".
