Despite the economic crisis, Nigeria is still alive and when there is life, there is hope.

As we all know, some certain things have to be put in place to help the growth of the economy. These things are long term investment that has possibility of making a great impact on the nation's growth in the coming year.

According to Trade Economic, Youth Unemployment Rate in Nigeria increased to 53.40 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020 from 40.80 percent in the second quarter of 2020. This shows that over 50% of the youths in the country are unemployed.

To reduce the rate of youths unemployment in the country, there are two things the Federal Government need to do, which are;

1. Creation of jobs

Most organizations employing the youths are private owned organization. And in private owned organizations, the chances of them employing an illiterate likely a graduate with zero experience is slim.

This is where the government need to take action. They should create facilities and labor for at least 20,000 youths in each state. This should help reduce the rate of unemployment and increase the standard of Living.

2. Empowerment scheme for youths

Empowerment is a good way to mobilize the youths of the country. There are thousands of youths with skills but no finance to ignite their dreams.

The N-power created by the government has helped thousands of people, but I believe the government can do more.

Youths acquisition and empowerment should be a scheme the government should establish for the youths.

When youths indulge in skills like barbing, tailoring, gadgets repair, carpentry, mechanics etc. It would help keep youths busy and bring in steady income.

With these two things in place, I strongly believe the future of our youths will be bright. Corruption, fraud, violence etc. will become history.
