Some times, it is unemployment that makes people to misbehave.
When people try all they could and no result, they become frustrated. It is now get rich or die trying.
If it is sure that when you do the right thing, success is certain, people will not go into crime.
In the olden days, once you are a graduate, ladies will marry you because they know your future is guaranteed.
But this days, the government will compare with some exceptional people who had the favour of God and establish and employ people. Every body can not be exceptional.
Sometimes you need experience and earmarked capital before you can establish your own business.
The government should stop pushing her responsibilities to the citizens. They should create enabling enabling environment for multinationals and individuals who have the resources to establish businesses.
By so doing, the youths will be employed and some of them will have the confidence to go into entrepreneurship.
The economy is hard for businesses to thrive and you are telling the youths who has no capital to go into entrepreneurship.
