Buhari also said there is a need to raise generations of youths devoid of religious extremism and bigotry, urging the group to continue to target the young people who are the promise of the future.
- According to Garba Shehu’s statement, Buhari said, “Your work is very important in helping, especially the youth, to understand one another and at the same time, to be proud of their heritage. This great initiative by you will help future generations to plan well and live together in peace. On our part, we will continue to solve our problems, especially as they relate to the youth. We are big in size and population, facing many challenges, but in many areas, we are trying. In seven-and-a-half years, I have done my best,’’
Shehu stated that the Foundation Secretary General said they had come to inform the President, and to invite him to attend the conferment upon him, the Abu Dhabi Foundation’s award in recognition of his outstanding achievements in promoting peace and security.

For the records
The declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari in faraway Washington will contrast with the views of most Nigerians who feel that his administration had not done enough to tackle the various challenges confronting Nigeria, which include insecurity, poverty, job creation, and so on.
