Isaac OguntoyeComrade Rahman Adewale is one of the activists cum politician who is advocating for youth to take over the mantle of power come 2019 general election. He is the Chairman of the Liberation Movement Party (LM), Lagos state chapter. According to the Chartered Accountant and tax expert, the stage is over crowded, which means some of the old bloc needs to step aside for the younger ones to take over the centre stage. In his words, he said “What we are saying to the old bloc is that the stage is now over crowded. They need to begin to step down for the youth to take over. The same way those they took power from stepped down for them some 30 years ago, they too should step down now. They need to leave when the ovation is the loudest because if they leave now, we would salute them But when they refuse to leave, then we cannot stop advocating for revolution.” “This is the high time to tell those old politicians to get off the stage for the new blood to take over because majority of them were like our age when they took over power and some of them have been there for over 30 years, It is time for them to leave the stage” The chairman emphasized. When asked about the party presidential candidate, he said “The first thing that set Dr. Chris David apart is that, he is a futurist. There is no course for futurist in Nigeria But he did the course in America. And he had a doctorate degree in it. What does that mean? It means an ability for foresight. An ability to look deep down into the future to identify the way to go. And in doing that, our party and the presidential candidate, did a long stretch of research about ten countries of the world who are successful. We did a research in what is making them to be a successful and prosperous nations and we identify values that shape them. And those values is what we have imbibed to shape the future of Nigeria, so that we can have equality. When we have equality then prosperity will be our lots as a nation. Of course we have our value of meritocracy, excellent, integrity, rule of law and others.”
Meanwhile, Comrade Rahman condemned the lingering anomalies in the society in the coming polls while he admonish the older politicians to Step aside for the younger ones to take over as they are the true liberation army.
