The American envoy drew Otedola’s attention to Nigeria’s growing population, noting that the private sector has a critical role to play in creating opportunities for youths to be gainfully employed and in nation-building.This, Symington added, would help to address poverty in the country and rising insecurity due to the high rate of unemployment.
