Obi made the call in Lokoja at the weekend on the sidelines of the International Youth Day event organised in conjunction with the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN).
The country director, who was represented by the director of programme, Mrs. Tasallah Chibok, decried the high rate of unemployment in the state, which had been fingered for some of the recent violent clashes in parts of the state.
His words: “For many years, youths and women in conflict-prone areas have suffered several psychological and physical losses. Like most states in Nigeria, Kogi is not left out.”
