The Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) has appealed to the Federal Government to create more cottage industries in the country to help stem the growing unemployment menace.
The political party also urged President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently declare a state of emergency on youth unemployment in the country.
A statement signed by Tosin Adeyanju, National Publicity Secretary, APDA, it said in the light of thousands of our youths trapped in the slave market in Libya, it has become paramount that the government create cottage industries for youths in the country to get engaged in productive ventures.
Adeyanju also lauded the federal government efforts in repatriating stranded Nigerians in Libya back home.
The statement reads: ‘’We appreciate the response of the federal government in airlifting stranded Nigerians and victims back home, however there is urgent need for the government to come up with a strategic plan that will discourage this young Nigerians from going through this route in the near future.
‘’The only way out is for the government to restore hope back to them by creating the enabling environment for them to explore there God–given talents.’’
