Still in search of the solution to the increasing rate of youth unemployment in Nigeria, the President of the Ugwumba Center for Leadership Development in Africa, Mr. Uche Nwosu yesterday advocated for a stand-alone Ministry of Youth Development at both Federal and State levels, to enable the #Government allocate more #resources and #time for youth development through #jobcreation.
According to him, sports development is another large department of Government that should not be combined with the onerous tasks associated with youth development.
The bereaved Uche Nwosu made this clarion call while speaking to newsmen in Abuja when HRM Othman Bilyaminu Usman, the Emir of Dass led his cabinet on a condolence visit on him.
He maintained that the development of our youths should be accorded top priority in the scheme of things in Government because, an idle hand, they say is the devil’s workshop.
According to him, “most Nigerian youths are unemployed, even though they have ideas on what to do to generate money. To solve this lingering problem, the Government should create an enabling environment for investors and companies to come in and engage the youths. When the teeming unemployed youths are gainfully employed, banditry and kidnapping will become things of the past.”
Also, speaking to newsmen, the Emir of Dass, HRM Othman Usman urged Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for the peace and unity of the country. According to him, “as a traditional ruler, my advice for Nigerians, no matter their tribes, religion or political affiliations is that we should emulate our forefathers, who laboured to keep Nigeria as one country.”
The Turakin of Dass, Alhaji Ismail Sani and other prominent members of the Emirate accompanied the revered traditional ruler on this important visit to Abuja.
TO GO BE ALL THE GLORY!
