Insecurity, Social Menace Will Drop Drastically If Tinubu Pays Attention To Youths -- Comrade Agberen

By Daniel Dafe

A rights activist in Delta State, Comr.(Amb.) Derrick Oritsematosan Agberen, National Coordinator, “No Justice, No Peace Initiative”, has called on the presidency to pay attention to issues of unemployment and genuine skills/development programs to engage the Nigerian youths, saying if these are done, issues of insecurity and other social menace will drop drastically.

In a statement, Agberen added: “It is a sacred obligation for the Nigeria Governments to take proper care of the citizens it governs otherwise, they’ll device dubious means for survival, which threatens the very existence of the society.”

According to him, since the inception of democratic governance
in 1999, the Federal Government of Nigeria has done little or nothing to improve human rights protections and the welfare of the Nigerian citizens.

Adding: “It’s so sad that we’ve had good numbers of graduates in time past and even till date, Nigeria universities are populated with undergraduates but with no future plans after many years of study’s, therefore defeating one from the key purposes of going to school.”

He continued: “It is no news, that most of the empowerment schemes initiated by both the Federal and State Governments in time past, were not really meant to develop the youths, as it has had no sustainable values but created avenues for persons in office to loot public funds, just like the recent NPOWER scheme, that was recently cancelled by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”

In his words, “unemployment has become a major problem bedeviling the lives of Nigerian youths, causing increased militancy, violent crimes, kidnappings, restiveness and socially delinquent behaviour.”
