Traditional ruler seeks industries to boost employment
The traditional ruler of Aro community in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, Chief Joseph Osho, has called for the establishment of industries to tackle youth unemployment.
Osho told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) last Thursday in Aro that job creation should not be left to government alone.
“Let us all agree that no government can shoulder the responsibility of providing our teeming youths with jobs and this is the reason why able hands should develop the economy by establishing industries.
``When this is done, social vices such as armed robbery, stealing, kidnapping, 419 and yahoo-yahoo in the country would be drastically reduced,’’ he said.
The monarch also advised youths to engage in profitable work, rather than engage in criminal acts.
“You can begin a small business or learn a trade with a view to rendering services to other people and earning a living,’’ Osho said.
He commended the state government for executing laudable projects, particularly for choosing the council area for its ‘Abiye’ health pilot scheme.Share
