President Muhammadu Buhari had an interactive session with young Nigerians to mark the globally celebrated as International Youth Day at the Presidential Villa in Aso Rock, Abuja.
In his address at the event, the president praised the involvement of youths in the 2015 general elections, describing young Nigerians as “the architects of change”.
President Buhari also challenged Nigerian youths to cooperate with his administration in seeking innovative ways to address Nigeria’s unemployment challenge which mostly affects constituents of the youth demography. This, he said, would help Nigeria take a “quantum leap in developing our infrastructure.”
Excerpts of the president’s speech were shared on his official account, @NGRPresident, on social media site, Twitter.
