Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has announced the launch of a new initiative aimed at addressing the challenge of youth unemployment in Ogun State.

Speaking yesterday on the theme of this years’ International Youth Day, “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production,” the Ogun State Governor said youth unemployment is now widely acknowledged as a crisis, “not just in Nigeria but across the continent of Africa.”

Governor Amosun added: “It is with this shared understanding that I hereby announce the Ogun Platform for Youth Entrepreneurship.”

This initiative, the governor explained, will coordinate public and private sector efforts to support young people to build the state’s economy.

In order to achieve this focus, Governor Amosun said the initiative would reach out to not less than 10,000 young people across the nooks and crannies of Ogun State within the next 12 months and place them on the path of sustainable development through entrepreneurship.

With Ogun Platform for Youth Entrepreneurship, Governor Amosun said, “we are boldly declaring that our future depends on our youth. Through this programme we make manifest our commitment to invest in this future so that their tomorrow will be much brighter than our today.”
