She noted that the unemployment rate is still high and there are few white collar jobs hence the move to catch them young and teach them how to become an entrepreneur using their talents.

“The white collar jobs are no longer there. So I inaugurated them and put some of them in place of position to mentor them, to make sure they can use their talents. And we put them in so many

connections with some Agencies like FIIRO, Nigeria Export Promotion Council, all of them,we put them together for capacity building, training, workshops which brought out their talents”she said.

Lawson said the youth Entrepreneur centre are currently in 17 states and training over 50 thousand youth Entrepreneurs, while more are still joining.
