If an African youth asks you for advise on how the continent would keep progressing in its development, what would you share?

Africa has many resources and these resources need to be continuously utilized to the benefit of the people on the continent and the world at large. African leaders are continuously making efforts to accelerate the level of development on the continent. Whiles the various leaders are running the affairs of their countries on the continent, advise the future leaders on development as a multifacet concept- economic, political, social, and human development. This is to discontinue the numerous literatures which have to be written about the continent's underdevelopment.
