Scholars lament social marginalisation of Nigerian youths


Nigerian Youths<br />

Some scholars have expressed worry over the social marginalisation of Nigerian youths, noting that Nigeria’s biggest challenge was not unemployment, but social marginalisation of young people.

They spoke at a press briefing on the upcoming 3rd Trade Fair and International Student Conference on Social Science slated for March 21 and 22 at Nile University, Abuja.

Speaking on the theme, Emerging Trends and Development in Africa, Chairman of the conference, Muhammed Yusuf stated that the age of prime ministers and presidents around the world ranges from 30 to 40, while in Africa the pathetic reality is that the age of the leaders ranges from 60 to 90yrs.

Yusuf attributed this to lack of mentorship, as young people are not being groomed for leadership.

The Chairman, Entrepreneurship Trade Fair 2018, Gylych Leliov explained that the 3rd in the series trade fair and conference brings together the gown and town together, so as to mentor the students to grow their own businesses.
