In a message which Goodluck Ebele Jonathan shared on his official Facebook page, the former president commemorated with all youths in Nigeria to mark the World Youth Day yesterday August 11.
I salute the resilience and creativity of our youths on a day dedicated to them. From Adichie to Jelani Aliyu, our youths continue to be our pride. When Nigeria’s economy became the largest economy on the African continent, it was and is because of our youths. When we perform exploits at the Olympics and other sporting events, it is because of the great Nigerian youths. Nigeria and indeed the world has no greater asset than our youth and you will continue to be my personal inspiration. My message to youths is to urge you to continue to develop yourself through positive endeavors. The future is yours. God bless our youths. GEJ.
