Estimated Reading Time: 1

Senate President Ahmed Lawan on Monday says Nigeria might face another #EndSARS protest if government fails to effectively address the issue of youth unemployment.

Lawan said government should make provision in its national budget to meaningfully engage the youths noting that there was the need to be more practical with budgetary allocations for the Ministry of Agriculture to create jobs for youths.

Senator Lawan gave the warning at the National Assembly during the budget defence session of the Ministry of Agriculture.

Lawan said Federal Government must take the Agriculture Sector more seriously in its efforts to diversify the economy from oil, stressing that the sector is able to finance the national budget.

Lawan, recounting the events of #EndSARS protests said the youths genuinely expressed their anger and successfully gained the government’s attention.
