As part of efforts to support youths financial liberation, the Ugwumba Leadership Center for Africa in partnership with the Hungary Embassy is to empower youths through a entrepreneurship financing programme.

This is contained in a statement signed by the President of Ugwumba Leadership Center for Africa, Uche Nwosu during a courtesy visit with his team on the acting Hungary Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Gabor Krauss, in Abuja.

The statement explains that the collaboration will provide employment opportunities for both youths and women in the country.

According to the statement, the partnership intends to create a flexible platform for youths and women to access business financing for their entrepreneurial ventures, especially those who have business interest in the sectors of agriculture, technology and entertainment.

It states that the aim was prompted by the existing urgency to address the worrisome factors of high youth unemployment and extreme household economic poverty in Nigeria.

“With extreme poverty deepening on a daily basis and the gap of youth unemployment widening on a daily basis, Nigeria is fast drifting towards a political collapse, if these factors are not addressed, as a matter of critical social and economic emergency” Nwosu emphasizes.

According to the statement, the partnership will also help in providing job opportunities to many unemployed Nigerian youths who are to roaming the streets.

“This morning in Abuja, I paid a courtesy call on Dr. Gabor Krauss, the Acting Ambassador, Embassy of Hungary in Nigeria in the company of my Director General, Remy Chukwunyere, our Advisor, Victoria Odimba and my personal Assistant, Josephat Okafor, One of the main agenda of the meeting was to seek collaboration with the Embassy in order to increase the scope of our job creation programs for youths and women in Nigeria” he adds.

“The embassy officials: Dr. Gabor Krauss, Judit Beres and Chris Eruba were excited about the impact we are making and promised to partner with us in creating more opportunities for our youths”.

“The meeting was very successful and we look forward to a fruitful relationship with the embassy in the future”.

Earlier, the acting Hungary Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr. Gabor Krauss, expressed willingness to partner the Centre in reducing the plight of youths and women in the country.
