Prophet T.B Joshua of the Synagogue Church of All Nations has accused African leaders of neglecting her youths.
In a recent broadcast, the popular cleric said unless African leaders pay attention to youth empowerment, the continent's future will be hopeless, gloomy and unilluminated.
"Africa has neglected her youths," the cleric said.
He goes on further: "Africa has abandoned the youths to themselves. Africa has failed to make provision for the youths, whereas tomorrow’s Africa is the youths.
"When I think about the future of Africa, I have sleepless nights. Everything looks gloomy, frustrating, hopeless, dark, darksome, shadowy, shaded, dull, sunless and unilluminated.
"We all take the responsibility for this state of affairs. What then is the way forward? The Lord has instructed me to make myself available and I know God, in His infinity, must have touched other Africans, so that we can come together to remedy this challenge.
"No African country can succeed alone. Africans need each other to develop. For example: West Africa needs Southern Africa and Southern Africa needs West Africa to develop. North Africa needs East Africa and East Africa needs North Africa to develop. Indeed, we are indispensable to each other; we cannot do without each other. No one is self-sufficient.
"Everyone has a contribution to make. Whether you are poor, rich, immigrant or refugee – you have a contribution to make.
