Popular singer, Terry G, has advised Nigerian youths who depend on the government for jobs to empower themselves.
In a chat with Showtime, he advised that come 2019, Nigerian youths should no longer wait for the government to provide jobs for them but empower themselves by learning a trade or acquiring a vocational skill.
“My advice to the youth is that it’s all in their hands, if they have handwork it’s better for them. If they don’t, they should look for one to learn; they can’t keep relying on the government because the government also needs the support of the youths. If they are diligent at whatever they do, they will reap the benefits, instead of waiting on the government”, he said.
Speaking further, he stressed the importance for everyone to get their permanent voters card to enable them vote in credible candidates during the 2019 general elections.
“Getting your PVC has to do with our future. Trust me, apart from we creating awareness about everybody getting their PVCs, it is in our hands, so, you won’t have anything to say if you don’t have your PVC. Even I talking to you I’ve not gotten my PVC, so I’m one of the guilty ones who haven’t gotten their PVC. I wish us the best”, he concluded.
