On Thursday Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari stated that the more than 60 percent of Nigerians that fall into the age category of youths deserve to inherit a stable and prosperous country that they can be proud of.
He also stated his government would work around the clock to stop the wanton waste and depletion of natural resources in the country by corrupt Nigerians.
According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, the President spoke while accepting a Letter of Credence from the Head of Delegation of the European Union to Nigeria, Ketil Karlsen, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Buhari clarified that the reason for his insistence on probes, transparency and accountability in the public and private sectors was to establish a secure and non-corrupt future for the country for all Nigerians, especially the youths.
He stated his government would continue to promote a culture of honesty and integrity in service, which will guarantee a better future for the youth.
“Our insistence on probity is to encourage people to be accountable, and accept honesty as a lifestyle so as to secure the future of our youths,’’ he said.
