The need for leaders at all levels to change the narrative of youths unemployment, restiveness and kidnapping to meaningful ventures has again been brought to the fore.
Governor Darius Ishaku who spoke to Forum of Former Chairmen of Local Government Areas in the State at the Government House Jalingo frowned at the alarming rate of unemployment that has made youths idle thereby making them a threat to the society.
