Adeleke stated that that governments at all levels must act with all urgency to implement programmes and policies to stem the tide of unemployment in the country.

While warning that policy documents must not be left to gather dust, he added that sustained implementation,at an expanded level,is required to create opportunities for job engagement for millions of unemployed youth.

“The unemployment rate is assuming a national security dimension which demands very urgent attention of all levels of government. A walk across streets in Nigeria will confirm the time bomb inherent in millions of young hands having no gainful employment.

“The chain reaction is the deteriorating security situation, the breakdown in family bond and the expanding law and order challenges. There is indeed a correlation between joblessness and high crime rate”,the State helmsman enunciated.
