The Chairman, Anambra State Security Trust Fund, Chief Godwin Okeke has identified sit-tightism by old men as cause of underdevelopment, among other myriads of problem facing the country, especially the Southeast part.

Okeke, who disclosed this when some members of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), Zone B, paid him a courtesy visit in Onitsha, lamented that some people have ceased the stage of power refusing to bow out.

He therefore called on old political leaders, professionals and business owners to hand over leadership affairs to youths in the country rather than struggling till they dropped dead.

According to him, none formal transmission of power to younger generation while alive often make Igbo children to fight or kill themselves over simple family affairs by all means, as well as the reason the zone were yet to enjoy the dividend of democracy at federal level.

“In handing over to our children, we must get them prepared for their tomorrow but not when we continue to see them at the age of 25 to 30 as kids,” Okeke said, even as he advised students to shun cultism, armed robbery, kidnapping and other social vices.

Earlier, the Director of Special Duties, NANS Zone B, Mr Tochukwu Ekuma, said they visited the business mogul to commend him for his support that assisted members to Gombe for NANS national election.
