The governor said the challenges of unemployment and insecurity would soon be overcome.
He said that if youths failed to engage in productive ventures by utilising the various opportunities put in place by the state government in agriculture and entrepreneurship training, they would be lured into crime and other vices.
He said “I must advise youths of this nation, you are a powerful instrument of change and you must not let the challenges we are facing as a nation to discourage you. Do not allow these challenges to push you towards mortgaging your glorious future. Try and confront the challenges with a strong determination to succeed in life. You must not submit to challenges but try as much as possible to confront them.”
