The General Overseer of the Citadel Global Community Church, CGCC, Pastor Tunde Bakare has tagged Nigerian youths as the problem of the country.
This arose lately after he poured his feelings out with the utterances he gave at the maiden edition of The Conversation Africa Series organized by the Legacy Youth Fellowship in Lagos.
According to his belief, he outlined that some youths who are once trusted in powers ruined the beauty of the country.

He also added that the Nigerian elder leaders in no way have contributed to the awful nature of the Nigerian government.
In his words, he said:
“Young Nigerians are asking why a country so rich wears the inglorious badge of the poverty capital of the world. Consequently, we have seen determined young Nigerians fired up and ready to take their country back from the so-called gerontocrats”
“Our current youths need to be reminded that on May 24, 1966, a 31-year-old Head of State destroyed the foundation of federalism and made Nigeria a unitary system and also in mid-1970’s some young and zealous army generals in their 30’s overthrew the government in their bid to sanitize the system but ended up destroying it among other incident”
“Young Nigerian patriots, you can see from this brief recourse to history that Nigeria was brought to its current state, not necessarily by hero tocrats, but by mostly young Nigerians, some of whom had been actively involved in governance from their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s, and some of whom are relevant even now. It is why I say that youth, in a sense, brought us here.”
Aggrieved Nigerian youths are currently trolling him on social media platforms as it trends.
