How to end youth unemployment – Saraki
Senate President Bukola Saraki, yesterday said youth unemployment can be curtailed through collaborative policy and legislative thrust that would improve access to finance and develop basic infrastructure.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the Senate president noted that the inability to access finance, inadequate power supply and the nation’s current underdeveloped transport systems, hinder millions of unemployed and under-employed youth from starting small businesses.
“Right now, it clear that no arm is of government can go at this alone. On our end in the 8th Senate, we are working to create new forms of capital, through the passage of Bills like the Secured Transactions in Movable Assets Bill that will allow young people to use their portable assets; like cars and laptops as collateral for loans to start small businesses,” Saraki said.
