Entrepreneurship remains solution to youth unemployment, expert says
Founder, Africa Canada Trade and Investment Venture, Kenneth Oguzie, has called on Nigeria youths to focus on entrepreneurship, which he sees as the solution to unemployment.
In a virtual gala/award event, he called on the government to do everything within its power to assist youth entrepreneurs face the challenging times.
The Canada-based Nigerian entrepreneur lamented the condition of many Nigerian youths who, because of unemployment, took to menial jobs, including commercial motorcycle business, to make a living.
He challenged the government to come up with programmes that would help youths to become great entrepreneurs.
“As the chief executive officer of an international business organisation focused on trade, investment, project financing and business facilitation between Canada and Africa, I believe it would go a long way in inculcating in the youth the quality of having a global perspective in business.”
Oguzie, who is always boosting the morale of young entrepreneurs, was given an award for his contribution and active support towards immigrants.
Challenging the elderly to give entrepreneurship a trial because “it is the solution to the global harsh economy,” he charged the youth to remain focused and undaunted in the face of every challenge.
