The young shall grow...

General Ibrahim Babaginda declares that the younger generation of Nigerians is unfit to rule the country (thanks Omo Oba for the link).

In response to the question as to why he and his err...age grade...does not step aside for the youth, he replies, "Because we have seen signs that they are not capable of leading this country...May be they are not given the proper education that is why."

But of course, IBB has totally forgotten that our elders are inherently wiser than us. And like they say, what the young man sees by climbing a tree, the elder has seen while sitting down**...well, unless, there's a fence in his way...and IBB has been living behind his for far too long...
