Days after visiting Nigeria, the world's second richest man, Bill Gates, has spoken exclusively with the Cable News Network (CNN) lamenting that the federal government's investment in the younger people was not good enough.

Gates, who owns a foundation with his wife, Melinda, specifically mentioned areas where the Nigerian government has not measured up to include health and education.

"As a partner in Nigeria, I am saying the current plan is inadequate. Nigeria has all these young people and the current quality and quantity of investment in these young generations; in health and education just isn't good enough. So, I was very direct.

"If they can get health and education right, they will be an engine of growth not just for themselves but for all of Africa," he told the CNN.

"The current quality and quantity of investment in this young generation in health and education just isn't good enough. So I was very direct," Gates reportedly added saying he wanted to spark action and debate and had really done that.
