An entrepreneur and real estate developer, Chief Toyin Amuzu, has called on governments at all levels to engage the nation's youth population constantly through dialogue to curb the spate of agitations, internet fraud and other vices among them. 

Amuzu said that governments must devise means to harness the creative energies of the youths through mentoring, leadership training  and skill development schemes lest the youths direct their potentials to ventures that would  be detrimental to themselves,  the society and country. 

The entrepreneur stated this at the sidelines of his installation as the Asiwaju Leragun of Egbaland on Saturday by the Alake and Paramount Ruler of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Aremu Gbadebo, even as he appealed to wealthy Nigerians to lend a helping hand to positively to engage the youths. 

He said governments must not stand aloof and allow youths in the country to continue involving themselves in criminal activities as means of survival, emphasising youths as the future leaders must be provided with conducive atmosphere to blossom.

Amuzu argued that the EndSARS protest which threw the country into chaos October last year gained traction because of involvement of the youth, insisting Nigerian government should evolve various programmes and schemes to gainfully engage the teeming young Nigerians.

He, however, said he had set up his Toyin Amuzu Foundation to create platform of empowerment for the youths, not only in Ogun state but in the country.

He added that a football competition organised by the foundation aimed at discovering soccer talents in Ogun just kicked off.
