President Muhammadu Buhari has urged Nigerian youths to believe in the potentials that abound in Africa.

He made the remark at the opening ceremony of the African Wrestling Championships on Wednesday at the Alfred Diete Spiff Civic Centre in Port Harcourt.

The President, who was represented by the Minister of Youth and Sports Barrister Solomon Dalung said that sports is the only tool that can unite and promote peace and coexistence among Africans.

“Africa remains the bride of the next civilization. Therefore, we must exploit the potentials of sports to create jobs, to entertain our people, to promote peaceful coexistence, to improve on tourism and promote the health well being of our nation. Investing in sports is the next step Africa must look into.”

President Buhari charged the athletes to be good ambassadors of Africa and compete fairly.

“This is an opportunity to showcase the very rich talents you possess. This championship will afford you the opportunity to excel because athletes who will be competing at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games will be produced here, therefore, I urge you to compete fairly and honestly and ensure that the benefits accruing from this competition remain the ultimate goal for all.”
