Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, on Monday, in Monrovia, the Liberian capital, described social media as a blessing to the electorate and not politicians alone.

This was as he advised the youth to maximise the “real advantages” of social media, noting that they live in the most advanced moment in human history.

He also counselled young people to learn from history so as not to repeat past mistakes. According to him, learning from the country’s troubled past is much better than experiencing its new.

In a statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo spoke at the Emerging Young Leaders Forum, where he was the Special Guest of Honour.

The statement is titled ‘Osinbajo tells youths to learn from history as Liberian leaders, people pour encomiums on him.’

According to him, “I think that social media is a blessing for everyone, not just for politicians but the electorate and others.

“The platforms are so crucial in being able to communicate and it is also important to recognise that every generation has its own technology. It has its abuses and downsides, but you must make sure you maximise its real advantages.

While noting the epochal moment today’s youths occupy in history, Osinbajo said “In terms of advancement, this generation doesn’t compare to any before it.

“We, who are older than you, are enjoying your generation’s technology, and I hope and pray that you would take full advantage of it to expand your knowledge, and scope of activities, and for broadening enterprise and your communication with other people.”

The VP added that every sensible person learns from history rather than from experience.

“If you wait to learn from experience, you will suffer. What you are supposed to do with history and your past, is to learn from it and never let it repeat itself.

“One of the most important things for young people is that you must bear in mind all the time that your history is not your destiny, it is just part of your story.
