Rotimi Akeredolu, the Ondo State Governor has advocated for the enactment of population law, in a bid to end the menace of youth unemployment across the country.
Akeredolu made this known while speaking during the ‘Summit On Youth Unemployment, #ENDSARS and Aftermath: The way Forward’ held at the International Culture and Event Center (DOME) Akure, the State Capital on Wednesday, November 25.
According to him, the country’s population is on a daily increase, pointing out that a nation that has no population law is not prepared for growth.
“We must be able to control our population through population law. We are almost the size of China population. But in China today, there is a law that you can’t have more than one child. We must be deliberate about this population law.” he said.
The governor went on to call for the establishment school of technology and trade centres in order to produce self-reliant youths who would be employers of Labour.
