A former ambassador to Switzerland, Uche Odogwu, has advised the youth to shun land racketeering, other forms of crime and embrace skills acquisition.
Odogwu, son of late philanthropist, late Chief Sonny Odogwu stated this at graduation of 40 Asaba youths in skill acquisitions organised by a non-governmental organisation, Asaba Home-Diaspora Development Initiative.
Odogwu said such training would empower the youth to become employable and employers of labour.
He described labour as the greatest asset of all factors of production.
“The crime rate and land racketeering in Asaba are on the increase because most youths are jobless and not employable.
“A skilled mind is a developed nation; this skill acquisition should be all-inclusive. I urge all Asaba indigenes to support the programme to enable the state salvage our youths and make them wealth creators,” he said.
‘‘At the end of the training, successful business and employment opportunities will be opened to the less-privileged youths, young adults and those who cannot afford such training.”
