"The youth of Nigeria are the country's secret weapon" - CNN's Richard Quest

Popular CNN presenter, Richard Quest of Quest Means Business has been in Lagos, Nigeria on a media tour for the past few days. In some tweets shared via his page, he described Nigerian Youths in glowing terms and how people are succeeding despite the government's shortcomings. According to him;



"There's no shortage of entrepreneurs in Nigeria. No shortage of drive or ambition. People are succeeding inspite of the government not because of it. The youth of Nigeria are the country's secret weapon. I've been impressed with the young people I've met here. Nigeria will have the largest, most intelligent work force in the world, but needs to get its act together."

You're saying this because you come from a society where proper planning is the norm. But here just as the ruiners totally wasted Nigeria's oil wealth, they are already compromising the huge potential of the youths.

They youths r not United. If we can stand up with one voice, putting all sentiments aside I swear our leaders can't treat us the way they do right now!

The youth are being sidelined by old men like Buhari and Liar Mohammed who can't even hear questions properly and who do not have their finger on the pulse of the youth to know the jollof rice debate even exists

This a true talk by Richard. This revelation is a coded advise to the Nigerian leadership. A very valuable hint of the country's strength which when properly harnessed Will bring a lot of value to our National development. If our leaders fail to harness this virtue pointed out by Richard, the energy and the talents of our youths may be misdirected to something negative and destructive. Most successful leaders world over recognise tap exploit this potential for National building. It is wise to harness in-house human resources to build the nation. This latent National strength has been re-echoed over and over again by people like Richard and former US ambassador to Nigeria.

Same thing I've been hearing since 1984. The youths are the leaders of tomorrow yet we are nominating a great great grandpa for ambassador to somewhere...
