Prof. Eddy Erhagbe, Dean, Faculty of Arts, University of Benin (UNIBEN), has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to address social ills and end youth restiveness and banditry.
He spoke yesterday at a stakeholders’ meeting organized by the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC) in collaboration with the Edo State Directorate of National Orientation Agency (NOA) in Benin City.
Erhagbe decried the mismanagement and misappropriation of the country’s resources at all levels of governance, adding that such ignoble acts negatively contributed to the impoverishment of the citizens, leading to youth restiveness among other social ills.
He also called on the government at all levels to address the social problems, which bedevil the country, most importantly unemployment.
The University Don doubted the sincerity of the prosecutors of the war against corruption, which according to him, seems to be skewed against political opponents.
