Unemployment making Nigerian youths vulnerable to crime – Osinbajo
Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo Monday decried the level of unemployment in the country saying the situation makes Nigerian youths vulnerable to being recruited by kidnappers and anti-social agitators.
He cited lack of provision of basic needs to the largest number of people as the greatest source of tension in the polity.
Speaking during the 50th conference of the Nigerian Law Teachers Association held at the auditorium of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU), Awka, Osinbajo maintained that most of the security problems confronting the nation are self inflicted by corrupt practices, injustices, among others.
The Acting President blamed the increasing cases of agitation across the country on the failure of the state to deliver on the basic needs of the people, forcing them to seek for succour in their respective tribal groups as the way out.
