Chemical engineers seek actions to tackle urban unemployment
Chemical engineers under the auspices of Nigeria Society of Chemical Engineers (NSCHE) have charged the Federal Government to development roadmaps aimed at tackling the rising urban unemployment.
The Engineers said though the rising unemployment rate in the country requires urgent solution, it held that the unemployment in urban areas has the capacity to push the unemployed into anti-social vices.
Speaking at the 24th fellows’ conference, National President, NSCHE, Professor Emenike Wami said urban unemployment still remains a major concern for the Government of the day stating that a quick intervention by the latter would restore the economy.
Wami said: “That our country is in recession as a result of sharp decline in oil revenue, which is our major source of income, is no longer news.”However, he said for every problem, there is a solution, and for every disappointment, there is a blessing, adding, “it is said that great opportunities for success are always disguised as insurmountable problems. Given a positive mind coupled with the right attitude, it is possible to surmount our present problems and achieve great success.
“It is on this positive note that I posit that what is happening to our oil revenue now has benefits if we are willing to seize the opportunity and take the corrective action required.”
