Adressing the Sir Kashim Ibrahim Fellows at Sir Kashim House in Kaduna on Tuesday, the minister said youth as the leaders of tomorrow should pay more attention to the digital world, as it’s now the global trend and still dominating every sector of development.
He caution the fellows on the importance of reading beneficial books, mentorship, as well as challenges of digital inclusion in Nigeria.
