Concerned by the spate of unemployment, corruption and insecurity in the country, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) raised a conversion with young Nigerians about the country, on strategic ways on how to improve the lives and betterment of Nigerians, with key emphasis on the youths.

The discussion with Deputy Secretary General of United Nation Amina Mohammed, Nigerian Minister of Youths Sunday Dare, the Nigerian Minister of Women Affairs Dame Pauline Tallen, Youth Leaders across Nigeria and in the diaspora lend their voices on how to improve, among other things.

According to one of the discussants and popular youth leaders, Kingsley Obiukwu, he speaks on how Nigeria could harness the power of its youthfulness and also ensure that the very important population are not left behind or sidelined as they #BuildForwardBetter.

He frowned at the high rate of unemployment and insecurity in Nigeria, adding that before these could be addressed, Nigeria must have a working system. A working system that would make people and the leaders understand that there would be real repercussions to every action that take.
Especially, when corruption is involved!”

He further went down to talk about risk the high rate of unemployment poses to the nation and why it must be combatted immediately.

“I gave an example of the movie produced by Charles of a play called Rattle Snake. In the movie; how one factor (unemployment) linked all the criminals up. Most importantly, how a particular character called “Egbe” was recruited into being a criminal.”

He also emphasized on how the movie horror could be the reality of today’s Nigeria, if the high rate of unemployment isn’t tackled with sincerity and for the love of the Nigerian people and the youths in particular.
