FRENCH President Emmanuel Macron has told Nigerian youths to be actively involved in politics to change the country’s narrative.
Describing politics as important, the French president said only Nigerians could change their image and that of the country before the comity of nations.
Macron, who was accompanied by Lagos State Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, threw the challenge Tuesday night when he visited the Afrika Shrine in Ikeja at an event tagged: “Celebrate African Culture”.
The event was attended by former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi, former Ogun State Olusegun Osoba, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Senator Ben Murray-Bruce, Fela’s lawyer Femi Falana and others.
Macron noted that the future of Africa and the task of making it great rested with Africans, stressing that the youths have a crucial role to play.
