Former governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, has taken to his Twitter handle and viciously attacked Nigerian youths, describing them as rude set who think shallowly.
Responding to the youths who were airing their views about him, yesterday, Nnamani issued his own venom through series of tweets.
The former governor was angered that there were but few who sided with view that he was a leader worth listening to.
Founder of Ebeano political family, Chimaroke is determined to have the biggest stake in deciding who becomes the next governor of Enugu in 2023.
It was against this backdrop that the youths attacked him, deriding him as the villainous godfather.
But Chimaroke did not just respond. He also stated that he has greater vigour and time big enough to combat youths’ “arrogance” on social media spaces.
“As I engage every day, tweet, retweet, like , comment and participate in spaces. I worry about the Nigerian GenZ our so called woke version. Intolerant, rude, condescending, intellectually averse and shallow. Quick to dismiss and curse.
“Self ‘disregulatory’ consumed by indissoluble anger and palpable hate. Denigratory and proselytizing. Intimidating, cyber bullying, destructive personal preachments. Ifechidere Ugwu BA(Nig)History advocated that none should listen to me anymore,” he tweeted.
The former governor also said that Nigerian youths could not even express themselves in good English grammar.
Once a revered personality, Chimaroke Nnamani has seen his diginity evaporating like mist ahead of 2023 gubernatorial race.
His choice of Barr. Peter Mbah as the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party has divided the party and sets several aggrieved factions against him.
