A former bus driver with seven years of experience, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım got behind the wheel and opened up about his life, experiences and gave advice to the Turkish youth in a travel show aired Wednesday on TRT Haber (News) channel.
During the show "Gönül Dağı," a domestic travel program hosted by Dutch photographer Wilco van Herpen, Yıldırım told the Turkish youth that they were capable of doing anything they set their minds to as long as they worked hard for it.
"Gönül Dağı," which roughly translates to "Heart Mountain," is named after a ballad of late Turkish folk singer Neşet Ertaş.
"I am from the Kayı village of Erzincan's Refahiye," Yıldırım said.
"Turkey is a democratic country, a state of law; so anyone can have any profession they want," he added.
"I have studied, struggled, so Allah ordained me to take office. This is why we advise our youths to work, keep on trying. They will surely take responsibilities for the growth, development and prosperity of this country [in the future]."
