Senator Liyel Imoke the Governor of Cross River State has said that Nigerian youths have the capacity to impact on the country and cause it to develop without succumbing to the evil of corruption which has stagnated its growth for a long time.

Imoke who was speaking to youths at the Cultural Cente complex in Calabar over weekend said as future leaders, youths should always imbibe the virtues of integrity and transparency if they must change Nigeria.

He said, “you don’t need to be corrupt to succeed, you don’t need to cheat to succeed, with integrity you can succeed”

“All you need to do is to take opportunity of anything that comes your way. Don’t ever give up on your aspirations no matter the amount of discouragement from people. Those that discourage or try to bring you down are only limited”, he said.

He said Nigeria will only be what today’s youth make of it and challenged them to think positively.

“I challenge today’s youths not to limit themselves. The future of Nigeria, indeed of Cross River lies heavily on the youths. I challenge Nigerian youths to be visionary so as to be better than our generation and change our country.”

Also speaking, Africa’s richest man, Alhaji Aliko Dangote stressed the need for Federal and State governments as well as other well meaning Nigerians to invest more resources to develop Nigerian youths.

“Nigerian youths should be trained and empowered. Government, companies and wealthy people should think about how a better Nigeria should look like tomorrow.

He said he is personally committed to the course of building a better future for Nigerian and African youths through the establishment of many ventures especially the Dangote academy which trains future business leaders.

    I should start by thanking the Governor for having the youths & the future of our nation at heart, but I believe that before this great nation of ours can grow, we all as individuals need to change first our mindsets, because thats where the real change has to take place. With discipline & determination, we should have a positive mindset & take a personal decision to shun corruption. With that, we would really make a change.
