Every day is a journey to a destination

How do I tell the world about my Inner consideration for the youths in africa? I can’t tell how to go about it only if the youths could see it from a far that they are the one the world is interested in to run its success. It is such an underestimated realization in our world today. What a pain of heart it is that leaders of today are nowhere to be found; instead, corruption and fraudulence are what we got in control of many nations today and to look at the insight, youths of africa tends to be viruses dealing with Fathers.

For how long!

When will the eyes of youths be open!

What is affecting these blindness!

Why will youths have to give up!

Hungry for a change!

Make Your Voice to the Nations.
