“Youths should ask for energy supply, virtually everything in a room for instance has been manufactured through electro-mechanical process, also you need credit from banks, I mean cheap credit rates in line with the level of returns to start your own business. He said.
“Until you emphasis on these two agenda youths cannot easily embark on skills acquisition and entrepreneurship. You need to critically look at your future and correct the society” he added.
Prof. Aluko promised to partner with the Youth Council in any possible way.
