The statement titled, ‘Teaching young people integrity, innovation and hard work is the foundation of a good society,’ stressed on how best the government can make use of the country's human capital to generate wealth.

“When people are nurtured in the notion that rent seeking or the prebendal capture of wealth or benefit by access to power is the path to success, then the society will not prosper," he said.

“A few will capture all the resources, everyone else will be poor or on their way there."
