Nigerian youths have called on the Federal Government to revive the nation’s economy.
This was made known by Ayomide Oke from Tolu Community, in Ajegunle, Ajeromi Ifelodun Local Government Area, Lagos during a two-day visit by officials of the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF) to communities and adolescent health programme centres in Lagos.
He said that the harsh economy has made many parents depressed, as they cannot adequately provide for their children.
He maintained that the poor economy of the nation has led to poor feeding thereby leading to ulcers among children.
He added that youths are battling with mental health with no idea of whom to relate with, according to Leadership.
“Some children are living with stomach ulcers, as they don’t eat well. Government needs to revive the economy so that our parents’ businesses can thrive, in turn, they will be able to take care of us.
“Also, a lot of youths are battling with mental health issues. They don’t know who to talk to. Some of us may need knowledge on reproductive health, but we don’t even know who we can trust or share these issues with. There should be a safe place in school where youths can share their problems. Our parents should also create time for us, as well,” Oke appealed.
