He made this known while speaking on Thursday in an interview with Channels Television.

Omo-Agege revealed that he is sponsoring a bill that will set aside 30 percent of positions in federal and state executive councils for persons aged between 25 and 30 years.

The deputy senate president also stated that he believes that there is a need for young persons to be exposed to the decision making processes.

“It is very feasible. If I may just correct you, it is not 30 to 35 years, it is 2 to 30 years. We want to capture the very essence of our youth,” he said.

“The reason we are doing that is we have this belief that arising from the #EndSARS protest, I have taken the position that I would rather have these youths sit down in the federal executive council and sit down in the state executive councils in various states than having them go protest at the Lekki tollgate.

“I do not see why we should keep these youths away from government, and these are people that constitute about 70 percent of our population today.

“They own this country. It is my belief that they are better off participating in decision making on matters affecting the well-being of the country. It is their country.

“The earlier we expose them to these positions, the better. They can make their mistakes; they are just 30 percent of the cabinet.”
