Learn To Live Together, Buhari To Young Nigerians

Nigerian youth have been urged by President Muhammadu Buhari to see above differences in culture, ethnicity, and religion when interacting with one another.

In order to understand the rich diversity of the nation, he also urged people to travel more, mix with others, practice tolerance, and engage in talks.

The president provided the advice on Saturday while hosting members of the National Youth Service Corps at his country residence in Daura, Katsina State.

Mr. Buhari asserts that regular communication and a wider perspective of Nigeria as a whole will enhance connections, particularly among young people.

The president’s media aide, Garba Shehu, in a statement in Abuja, quoted Mr Buhari as saying: ”Thank you so much for coming to see me. I have been away from home since Sallah celebration a year ago. And my attention has been on Nigeria, which is bigger than my town.

“Every time I meet former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, I always thank him for the NYSC, which helps people to move all over Nigeria.

“Before the NYSC there were people who had never moved out of their locality.”

The president claimed that over time, the program broadened people’s perspectives and helped to ease tensions and misunderstandings amongst strangers.

“When I joined the army, I was posted to Abeokuta and then Lagos. And I have travelled all over Nigeria,” he added.

Mr. Buhari advised the members of the youth corps to keep broadening their perspectives on opportunities and life in order to overcome cultural, racial, and religious barriers. He also advised them to use technology to network even across national boundaries in order to promote personal growth and a more competitive way of life.

“We are reaching a time where you don’t have to get education and start looking for government jobs.

”What happens when a government job is not there? You get educated and equip yourself for bigger opportunities, mostly provided by technology,” he said.

The youth and all Nigerians, according to the president, must learn to coexist.

Douglas Damina, the Corps Liaison Officer (CLO), praised the president for supporting the continuation of the NYSC and encouraged youth inclusion and empowerment in his remarks.

“Mr President, we pray that the Almighty God will accept your prayers and remember your sacrifices for the nation,” he said.

Mr. Damina told the president that the corps members had improved three motor boreholes, taught 350 young people various skills, and promoted good cleanliness, particularly among women.

The president gave the corps members two bulls, ten rams, and N1 million for the celebration.
