Former lawmaker, Dino Melaye, has urged Nigerian youths to grow up and stop selling their votes to politicians.
The senator who represented Kogi West District at the 8th National Assembly made the call in a post via his Instagram account while reacting to a video of Ghanaian youths rejecting bags of rice from a lawmaker.
The angry Youths of Damongo town were returning the bags of rice sent to them by NPP politician, Samuel Abu Jinapors, who represents their constituency in the country’s parliament.
In the video, they were also heard chanting “We need jobs and not bags of rice.”
Reacting, Melaye wondered if the same incident can ever be replicated in Nigeria.
He further noted that Nigerian youths needed to grow up and equally learn from Ghanaian youths.
“Ghanaian youths rejecting free bags of rice from politicians and demanding for job creation.
“Can this happen in Nigeria? To be honest, Nigerian youths needs to grow up,” he wrote.
