FORMER Defence Minister, General Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma has lamented the high rate of unemployment, which he said is responsible for the worrisome security situation.

Danjuma spoke in Abeokuta Wednesday at the 2nd graduation ceremony of the “Youth Centre for Industrial Training”, Abeokuta, a multi-million naira centre set up by the retired Primate of the Anglican Church, Most Rev. Peter Akinola, under the “Peter Akinola Foundation (PAF)” to train unemployed youths to acquire skills in various vocations.

In his support for the centre, Danjuma donated N500 million, pledging to donate N100 million yearly.

Primate Akinola, founder of Peter Akinola Foundation said he set up the Centre as his contribution towards solving the unemployment problem in the country, adding that the management of the centre was exploring the possibility of affiliating it with the London Institute of City and Guild.
