Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said the government at all levels has not been fair to Nigerian youths, stressing there was no concrete plan for the survival of youths.
Akeredolu said this, yesterday, at the summit on youth unemployment, titled: “#EndSARS and Aftermath: The way Forward,” held in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
He lamented that successive governments in the past did not plan for the youths, thereby culminating in an alarming rate of unemployment nationwide.
“Our youths, we have not done enough for you; we need your co-operation. We have to come together,” he said.
He, therefore, appealed for the establishment of technical schools and trade centres to produce youths who are self-reliance and employers of labour.
Akeredolu, who noted that the country must chart a new cause to address the issue of youths’ unemployment, stressed that no government could employ all the unemployed youths in the country.
He, however, advocated a population law, saying it is one of the ways of addressing the growing rate of unemployment across the country.
