The youth in Nigeria were also urged to make efforts to hold leaders and public officer holders accountable.

His words:

“To the young people, do not fear. This is your country. This is your future. Take hold of it. Work for it. Build it. Don’t let anyone tell you to run away because you have a degree.
"They say ‘Go to England, go to America. This is your country. You are coming back here. Let’s work to build one for you and you also help us build this country for you.”

Holding Nigerian leaders accountable

The Punch reports that Sanusi said he has been warned and even accused severally of criticising the government publicly.

Noting that the country is currently facing difficult times, Sanusi warned that Nigeria would not move forward unless the youths take ownership of their country.

He added:

“They think they have earned the right to tell you when to speak and when not to speak. They think they have earned the right to control your view and they cannot be criticised.
The truth is that they don’t have that right.”
