Read Buhari Inspiring Message To Nigerian Youths

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, August 12, commended Nigerian youths for their contributions towards the growth and development of the nation.

Speaking at the state House in Abuja, during the celebration of the International Youth Day 2015, Buhari noted that the youths are architects of change.

 

 

He said: “As part of the commemoration of Int’l Youth Day, I’d like to throw this challenge to Nigerians at home and abroad.

“I can assure you, my young compatriots that you have written your names in history and you will be remembered as true heroes of our democracy and as architects of change.

“This year’s theme – ‘Youth Civic Engagement’ – couldn’t be more apt, considering the vital roles young Nigerians played in the 2015 elections.”

The engagement and participation of youths is essential to achieve sustainable human development. However, the opportunities for youth to engage politically, economically and socially are low or non-existent.

The International Youth Day was however set aside to celebrate the youths.
