“Mind What You Say Because It Has Impacts On People’s Lives” - Amina Mohammed Tells Nigerian Youths

Amina Mohammed, the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General, has urged Nigerian youths to be patriotic and stop condemning Nigeria.

Amina who is also the United Nations Sustainable Development Group chairwoman, said this during a public lecture that was held in Abuja on Thursday. The lecture was organized by the law faculty of Baze University, and the topic of the lecture was “The use of ceasefire agreements in avoiding escalation of armed conflicts.”

According to Amina, Nigerian youths must always speak positively about the country.

She said Nigerian youths must go back and find out what is happening in villages and find out where the country was in 1960 and where Nigeria is today.

Furthermore, Amina said she agreed that the potentials in Nigeria have not been met and that the government has been doing better. But she said that what she disagrees with is people saying that their country has no hope.

In her words, she said, “What I disagree with is people going about saying there is no hope and condemning everything about the country.”

She went ahead to advise Nigerian youths to be mindful of what they say because it has impacts on people's lives.

She said, “Mind what you say because it has impacts on people’s lives. Some people take it seriously, whether what you say is true or not.”

Amina urged Nigerian youths to consider the implications of what they say about the country.
