One thought on “Africa must address youth unemployment to reduce poverty”
Poverty almost seems to be the bedrock to the motivation of African youth Unemployment.
“Africa cannot easily overcome poverty without investing heavily in agriculture,” according to the Hon. Tanzanian Prime Minister Peter Mpinda, projects a high level of solution. We as youth of Africa are in a weak position to continuously enjoy the highest dose of unemployment. Justice and equality are both demand of our request. African leaders must note that, ‘we do not need strong men but strong institutions!!’ Promote our education systems with high standards and engage our minds with necessary opportunities…to think right, to live right and to be right!!
