Dr Sunusi also challenged the youth as leaders of tomorrow to abide by good norms and values of the society adding that they should shun any acts that may portray them as irresponsible and unreliable in the society.

In his speech during the visit, the chairman of the foundation malam Ya’u Muhammad said, they were in the palace to request the emir to be the grand patron of the Foundation as they also sought his fatherly advice.

Yau explained that, the Foundation’s focus is on promoting good governance and public participation in the democratic system.

He told the emir that, the Foundation is also enlightening the youths on the menace of drug abuse, corruption and other social vices that are causing social unrest to the individual and the society.
