The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawal has called for greater attention to be paid to out-of-school-children and unemployed youths in the country.

Lawal, who made the call in Kaduna during Governor Nasir El-Rufai’s birthday and book launch, referred to the situation of school dropouts and unemployment as a time bomb.

He said the phenomenon is unfortunate and needed to be addressed so that it does not worsen insecurity in the country.

According to the Senate President, building infrastructures or injecting a few youths into governance will not necessarily address the menace of insecurity.

He also called on State Governors to also consider those youths who are jobless, by way of motivating them so as to have a better Nigeria.
