"Growth in population and economy in Africa is growing fast, which state that by 2030, there'll be an inflation of youth just like natural resources..... So there's a strong need to empower our youth today, so to become great leaders and strong entrepreneurs.... A unified Africa is strongly adviced, to be able to combat internal and external factors weighing us down such as corruption, terrorism, bad system of education, illiteracy, division.... The mentality of our youth must change, we must be able to accept and empower ourselves, by engaging in positive works, positive thinking, positive words about Africa, accept to invest in Africa, be ready to build and to build right ..... Our government must be ready to implement policies to enhance the growth and social empowerment of our youth.... #Build a man build a nation #I can do it and I can do it right #The future of Africa is in your hands"
