VIDEO: Urgent for Africa to create job opportunities, says Obama

US President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the most urgent task facing Africa today is creating job opportunities for the next generation.

Obama urged the continent's leaders to prioritize creating jobs and opportunity for the next generation of young people or risk sacrificing future economic potential to further instability and disorder.

The speech marked the end of a five-day visit to Africa that included an earlier stop in Kenya, homeland of Obama's late father.
