President Muhammadu Buhari has urged the international community and investors to take advantage of Nigeria’s diversity in human and natural resources to fast-track youth development in the country.
The president said this on Thursday when he received the Letters of Credence of the Ambassadors of Belgium, Mauritania, Austria and Norway at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Ambassadors who presented their Letters of Credence to the President are: Mr Daniel Bertrand, Ambassador of Belgium; Mr Amedi Camara, Ambassador of Mauritania; Mr Thomas Schlesinger, Ambassador of Austria and Mr Knut Eiliv Lein, Ambassador of Norway.
According to the president, youth development, integration and employment are priorities of his administration.
He said Nigeria remained committed and ready to pursue broader dialogue as well as enhance cooperation and collaboration on the basis of constructive mutual respect and a shared vision for the future.
The president, therefore, urged the ambassadors to enhance the existing cordial relations in the interest of citizens and countries.
In his remark, on behalf of others, the Ambassador of Belgium (Bertrand) thanked the President for making out time to receive the Letters of Credence in spite of the peculiar situation created by COVID-19.
He assured the president that the ambassadors would make the most of the opportunity to enhance economic, commerce and socio-cultural relations with Nigeria.
