Creative sector, panacea for youth unemployment, says Minister

The Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Chief Uche Ogah, has urged Nigerian youths to leverage the ample opportunities in the creative industry to overcome unemployment. Ogah said this at the closing of a two-day photography empowerment/training workshop in Umuahia.

The event was facilitated by Mr Fawole Oluwadamilare, the Special Adviser on Documentation to the Minister for Mines and Steel, Mr Olamilekan Adegbite.

Ogah, represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr Kelechi Ekugo, said: “Youths should leverage the creative sector because youth unemployment has become a big challenge in our country.

“However, new avenues should be explored to solve the problem.” He commended Oluwadamilare and his team for the initiative and hoped that the training had helped to equip and strenghten the participants.
