The Department of State Security (DSS) has proffered possible solutions to the Nigeria’s security challenges, saying, engaging youths meaningfully and address the issues of discrimination against women would bring lasting peace to the nation deserves.
The Director-General of DSS, Yusuf Bichi, made this call while speaking in Abuja at the grand finale of the 2021 Ugwumba Enterprise Challenge,
Bichi, who was represented by the DSS spokesman, Peter Afunanya, appealed to the government to partner with various individuals and organisations who will take many youths away from the streets and engage them.
According to him, what the Ugwumba Leadership Centre is doing to ensure many youths are financially independent, is one of the ways individuals can assist the government to tackle security challenges.
His words, “If you resolve the problems of the youths for instance, or if you resolve the issues of discrimination against women, you would have resolved the issues of insecurity.
“Today, we are aware that our country is facing security challenges and it is not peculiar to Nigeria, world over, many countries are facing different dimensions of challenges. It is not just combating the security challenges, empowering the youths through Small Scale Enterprises, is the way to go”.
