Towards creating employment opportunities for youths

ONE of the biggest problems facing this country today is the lack of employment opportunities for youths. It is so unfortunate that youths will graduate and find themselves unemployed. This is the reason crime is on the rise. An unemployed psychology graduate for instance will be good in fraud. If we don’t utilise the brains they have, then they will use them negatively against the society. If we look well, educated people will also be behind the numerous baby factories in the South East, and the kidnapping business in the South South. Do we ever wonder that unemployed Chemistry graduates are behind the illegal refineries that dot the South South? It is, therefore, important that government of President Muhammadu Buhari should focus on getting unemployed youths off the streets, and put them into jobs.
