The commissioner said to arrest this growing monster, the state government through his ministry has set up these centres to register youths and miscreants who are willing to learn trade.

Ajomale said the state government believed that to solve the problems of unemployment, it required the concerted effort of corporate bodies, non-governmental organisations and individuals. He called on stakeholders to set up youth empowerment centres to help empower youths in different fields such as painting production, tailoring, wielding, bricklaying and joinery.

He said the prevalence of unrest, touting and insecurity in the nation can be traced to non-availability of gainful employment and skill acquisition centres to train the teaming youths in the nation and to make them self reliance. He said no nation could develop in an atmosphere of youth restiveness and anarchy.

The commissioner revealed that in its determination to teach appropriate and marketable skills that will enable the unemployed young men and women to be self-reliant, and capable of improving the quality of life for themselves and their families, the government, through the Job Creation Department in the Ministry of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Relations established various vocational training programmes.
