Innovative solutions by African Youths

As the world celebrates the International Youth Day, we stop to think: African Youths wants to leave the shores of this continent because they are meant to believe that there are greener pastures outside Africa. The truth is, Africa is the ‘greeenest’ continent in the world, there are ever green vegetation, green ‘fresh’ untapped opportunities, the Land is very green. The green pasture are in Africa not in Europe, middle east or America. The greener pastures lies in all African Youths, we are the greener pastures, lets maximize our potentials, collaborate and indeed change Africa for the better!

We have suitable land necessary for green vegetation as well as good soil for its cultivation. we have a high youthful population, about 70% of youths in most African countries are youth. We have the best manpower available yet we are the highest importer of food products and exporter of Manpower: Our hard working youths!

Its so sad a thing, that with these wonderful resources our God has bestowed us with: Available water, Available cultivable Land and most importantly, available Manpower. Most African countries are yet to be food secured, still dependent on Aid from various countries and International organisations when actually we are the solutions to our own problems.

The government has rejected us, so All Africans youths should not reject themselves, This is a time for thinking, research,innovation, restratigizing and collaboration. This is a time for replication and innovation not migration and exportation of our manpower out of the shores of this green and beautiful continent.
