“This is because the youths are leading in the world now, both in ideas and innovations and that is why we have the Facebook developer, Mark Zuckerberg, who is in his 30s.
“One of the things that you need to do as youths is to start to take responsibilities and rise up with commitment to God.”
The Vice President, who was represented by the Chaplain of the Villa Chapel, Sheyi Malomo, recalled that Nigeria as a nation was built and shaped by the youths who were determined to build a formidable and united country.
