Following the recovery of 26 Nigerian women on the coast of Italy, the Center for Anti-Corruption and Open Leadership, CACOL, has slammed the Federal Government for not providing a conducive environment for development of youths in the country.
The group blamed the Federal Government, its agencies and the harsh economic situation in the country for the tragedy.
CACOL said the Federal and state governments must tackle the rising rate of unemployment in the country to curb the menace of human trafficking.
The group’s Director, Debo Adeniran, said, “The problems of illegal migration and trafficking are an accumulated issue. We have a high population of children and youths in this country and we are not planning for their future.
“Workplaces are actually winding up and no new jobs are springing up. This is why people want to leave and look for the proverbial ‘greener pastures.’
