The economic marginalization and mass unemployment of youths, despite its critical threats to the country's economic productivity, political stability, human and national security, it is still very obvious that the government of Nigeria at all levels is not doing enough to tackle the challenge. This is evident in the lack of sincere efforts by government to tackle unemployment among young people. Most of the government-driven job creation programmes and employment initiatives have been counter-productive due to insincerity of purpose and the high level of corruption in the public sector. The funds usually earmarked for government-initiated youth employment creation projects have always been diverted by corrupt public officials to private use with absolute impunity. Ironically, these stolen funds also include foreign monetary aid from international development organizations and donor agencies.
With millions of youths living in chronic economic hardship, extremepoverty and in a state of apparent neglect by the government, it becomes a worrisome reality and a critical warning indicating strongly that Nigeria sits on a keg of gunpowder waiting to explode with damaging consequences. Living in a state of economic frustration, millions of youths have not only lost hope in Nigeria but also in themselves and in their future. This ugly reality places Nigeria on a delicate balance that poses serious political, economic and security risks.
I have learnt what is called "M cube": Money, Materials and Men. Through this initiative I believe Nigeria can gain back her glory as a Nation.
I have been taught how to manage my business and gained entrepreneur skills. I can now become a real boss of my own.
