Building here means not masonry constructed, means the development of nation, the future of the country and Youth the vision of any country lies in the hands of it’s youths. They are filled with tremendous and towering ambitions.
It will be a great wastage of human resources if these youths are not given an opportunity to exercise their talent. All countries needs youths in order for their soil to become a brighter one. The primary role of young people is to get a good education in order to become better citizens of tomorrow. They need to learn skills to do the job that their country’s economy needs.
They also need to know how to read, write, think, understand, analyze, and discuss the issues their country faces. the entire success of the nation depends on the youths. However, in order for continuous success to take place.
It is the Government’s responsibility to provide the youth with proper facilities for getting equipped with the knowledge of the modern era. Youth are the spring of life. It is the age of discovery and dreams. They have the power to transform the nation into a better place. They also have the ability to lead their fellow citizens into the right direction. Youths are fighters they fight for an identity in society, equality, bullying, and other problems, which the world faces today.
All of them hope for a world full of opportunities, so great minds can conquer them and become better individuals. They need good morals and values to handle conflicts in a positive way. we have aspiring doctors, entrepreneurs, scientists, and who knows? Maybe the next president.
Illiteracy is a major around the world. About ninety percent of the people who reside in villages are illiterate. The reason is their utter ignorance and lack of initiative to lead them in the right direction. Someone has to pull them up. Here also, the young people can be of immense help.
The role of the youth is the most important in today’s time. Youth are strong forces in social movements. Youths are problem solvers. We need them to resolve most of our problems. The any nation that’s facing a lot of problems I believe that the youths are capable of solving them. Our youth they just need to be given a chance to prove themselves. Youths have the power to unite individuals in the 250 ethnic groups in Nigeria. Racism is an ongoing issue around the world Individuals is fighting against each other because of the complexion of their skin and the texture of their hair.
Religion is another issue the youths can convince their fellow man to live in peace and love. All of us are one and we should not allow these little differences to push us away from each other. Youth will make a huge difference in society and the entire world. The youth are our life and nation. They will make our country proud. the youth just need the support from their fellow citizens and they will perform their duties
The role of the youth in the nation building is crucial. Youth are the problem solvers. Youth have a positive influence on other young people and the nation, and are extremely ambitious. Youth have the ability to create an identity for themselves and move the nation forward.
However, they will not be able to do this without the support of their Government and fellow youths. So the youths can make their beautiful land flourish and shine in success.
Peace Ambassador for the Commonwealth Youth Council.
