Unemployment Major Problem In Nigeria – OBASANJO
Nigeria’s former President Olusegun Obasanjo has pointed at unemployment as a major problem facing the country at the moment and cautioned that if care is not taking it will consume the country.
He said this on Saturday in Abeokuta at a lecture put together by members of the Youth Fellowship of the Owu Baptist Church, as part of the Church’s programmes to mark Nigeria’s 56th Independence anniversary.
The theme of the programme was, ‘Nigeria Development for Nigerians by Nigerians’.
The former president also hinted at the event that he foresaw that recession was imminent two years ago, when he noticed how carelessly the former administration was spending the country’s resources and cautioned against it but that his advice was not harkened to.
He then called on President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government and Nigerians to stop lamenting and confront the challenges presently facing the country. He added that the country has failed to attend its required position 56 years after independence, but that there was hope it will overcome.
