The ex-wife of Obasanjo, Taiwo Obasanjo has asked the youths of Nigeria to join her in a quest to fight the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the country.
She stated her desire to engage all the youths in her voluntary organization, Youths for National & International Responsibility, and for them to be actively involved in the fight against the virus.
In a statement issued on the 9th of May, 2020, she said;
“Youths for National & International Responsibility, a.k.a. We care,We love, is an amalgamation of all ethnic youths in Nigeria, bringing them together and uniting in love – with no ethnic barrier, no hatred, no superiority, no arrogancy – with commitment and genuine purpose, devoting to render humanitarian services to continuously look for internal and African homemade, non-toxic, cheap and affordable solutions to the rampaging pandemic problem.
We all go into every nook and corner of our nation to get hidden and unknown, yet very effective cure for the virus that is affordable to all which we will publicize and bring to the knowledge of all on Radio, TV, Newspapers, Social Media etc in English and in all our local languages. Any effective discovery for the cure will be given out to the poor at very cheap rate or free where necessary.
This is a wake-up call for all our youths in Nigeria and a challenge for them to be impactful and to take charge for God and the people and be a genuine problem solver not by insulting, abusing, and judging any group or person or government.
She also added that;
“Our driven objective is… What can we do as youths of Nigeria to play our part, to bring solutions that are permanent to the current coronavirus plaque. Another very deadly plaque has been predicted will come after coronavirus, l want the youths to join hands together with me and other Mothers in the land to combat the current coronavirus. We should not leave the problem for the government alone to solve for us.
We invite youths from the North and South to volunteer their services”.
