like Oliver twist, we are asking for more, we believe so much that with Covid-19 at this time, the economy is crashing, we are trying to revive the economy, if you now disengaged 500, 000 youth at this period, are you helping the economy or you are making the economy worse more and that is why we are soliciting the federal government and all state to absorbed whatever percentage they can and support others to be self-reliant and employers of labor” he said
