Youth in Nigeria refers to that segment of people that are within the age bracket of 18-35 years. They account for about 60% of the Country’s population. They constitute the strength, bedrock and the future of the Country’s growing economy. However, there is mass unemployed youth in the Country.
It is therefore very imperative that the Country mobilize, empower and develop them to realize their potentialities and take advantage of the numerous opportunities (especially agriculture, technology, education etc) available to make positive contribution to the wellbeing of their communities and enhance the growth and development of the Country as a whole.
