He revealed this while speaking with newsmen on the sideline of the meeting of governors, ministers, and traditional rulers of South-West states following the EndSARS protest mayhem.
According to him, the government does not intend to stop engaging the youths and addressing the problem of poverty alleviation in the country.
He added that the newly launched funds by the government was actually aimed at creating job opportunities and the current efforts will not stop.
His words, “It is not as if the government has not been addressing the issue of unemployment. The newly launched funds by the government was actually aimed at creating job opportunities.”
“What the government has done so far is to provide platforms where businesses can thrive.”
“It was a peaceful meeting and it was agreed that the state and the federal government response to the initial demand of the EndSARS protest was appropriate.”
“The governors have taken the right steps with this meeting. However, they have been far away from we monarchs. You should not wait till election days before you reach out to us. This type of meeting should come regularly.
“We know the good and the bad in our communities but we are under-utilised.”
