> “It is only entrepreneurs that will truly drive the economy therefore, it will be shame if we all don’t work together to ensure that our youths, not only proud of themselves but very gainfully employed.
>
> “I’m not talking about government employment. Government cannot employ more than three or four million of us across all states and federal government. It cannot do it best to the maximum of the capacity it can take but the reality is that the rest of us to drive the economy will be private sector and that is where real wealth is created. All the big names like Dangote doesn’t work for government so we want to encourage these youths to be self reliant. ”
