24 September 2016 Uncategorized
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has said if Nigeria must get out of the present economic recession, it has to engage millions of youths in a fruitful manner to increase the nation’s productive capacity.
He said this while delivering the keynote address at the 2016 King’s College Founders’ Day Lecture organized by old students of the prestigious post-primary institution in Lagos.
According to him, the country urgently needs to unleash the energy and creative capacity of the youth adding that creation of jobs for the majority of the nation’s youthful population remains a challenge.
Saraki said that such foundation would enable the youths not only to find gainful employment but find a conducive legal, economic and socio-political environment to engage in entrepreneurial ventures through which they would generate jobs opportunities for their peers.
