Herbert Wigwe has advised Nigerian government to return to the basics of capacity building in helping youths achieve their full potentials.

Wigwe made this known at the recently held HOW Foundation motivational session inside the Intercontinental Hotel, Lagos.

The Access bank boss, who also double as the founder of the HOW foundation said: "First and foremost, most of us adults have that responsibility, and it is not about the president or leaders of the country alone. Things have changed so fundamentally over time and we have to go down to the basics of capacity building.

"One of the things our foundation will do at a later stage, has to do with even supporting them in the universities and other tertiary institutions, creating strong educational background, because the young people are truly the people that hold the future of the country," he said.
