Actor and entrepreneur, John Dumelo talks about the youth of Africa. According to him, the youth of Africa are awake and ready to take charge to make Africa a great continent.
Moreover, the actor detailed all of Africa’s natural resources and how they are being underused. He spoke about this on Instagram.
Mr. Dumelo wrote,
“Nigeria has oil, Ghana has oil, Congo has abundant deposits of copper, uranium etc. Kenya has gypsum, zinc etc. Guinea has bauxite. I can go on and on about what each African country has to offer. Let me give you an example, Africa has over 420m mobile phone users. The number is expected to hit a billion mobile phone users in the next few years. Yet we don’t produce our own mobile phones. We rather provide the raw materials to produce these phones and they are imported for us to use. Africa has 60 percent of the worlds uncultivated land. Yet we import billions of dollars of food.”
Also, he added that despite these challenges, the youth are charged and willing to change the status quo.
” Let me just stop here before I write a long sermon. The youth are awake and we are ready to change the status quo. Nemo iudex In causa sua….We have the interest of Africa at heart and we will defy the principles of natural justice to be our own judge 30 years to come! #Africa#youth#Itstime#letsmakeafricagreat
