Education is the veritable doorway through which the boundless potentials of the youths can be positively harnessed for the benefit of society, and the country at large, said President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to a statement by his special adviser media, Femi Adesina, the President made the declaration yesterday at State House, Abuja, while receiving the outgoing Ambassador of Belarus, His Excellency Vyacheslav Beskosty, who has spent over six years in Nigeria as the pioneer Ambassador of his country.
“I am impressed by your successful tour of duty, particularly in the area of educational ties between our countries. Over 600 young Nigerians are in your country, trying to guarantee a better future for themselves through education,” President Buhari said.
He added that the relationship between Nigeria and Belarus was sure to grow stronger in the years ahead.
Ambassador Beskosty said Nigeria had “big potential for economic cooperation” with his country, adding that military and technical ties were equally proceeding satisfactorily.
Noting that agricultural development was on the priority list of the Buhari administration, he added that Belarus, as the world’s biggest producer of fertiliser, and a giant in production of tractors “has a great role to play in the bid to achieve food self-sufficiency” in Nigeria.
The outgoing Ambassador commended the Buhari administration for its service to the nation, noting that people were already seeing significant changes in the country.
