The Director, International Cultural Relations, Ministry of Information and Culture, Mrs Memunat Idu-Lah, gave the advice when she spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Sunday.

Our youths should look inward and be creative, everybody has one creativity or the other being born, everybody has something is born to do in this world.

“I think we should discourage the youths from going out, if they need support, there are some government’s agencies saddled with the responsibility of providing many empowerment programmes.

“These agencies that can support youths to learn something and be productive rather than looking at running out,” she  said.

 “We should not think of going out, we should try to look inward and believe in government’s programmes.

“The Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency (SMEDAN) is there and so many programmes that the government has put in place to help the youth to encourage them.” she added

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, the director described human trafficking as illegal and modern day slavery and urged youths to stay in the country to support in boosting the nation’s economy.

NAN reports that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) has declared every Aug. 23 as World Slavery and its Abolition Day and Nigeria is preparing towards joining UNESCO member countries to commemorate the day in 2021.
