The Governor of Osun State, Rauf Aregbesola, has challenged the federal and state governments to map out strategies for tackling  youth unemployment in the country.

Shortly after participating in an endurance trek with 20,000 Osun Youth Empowerment Scheme (OYES) cadets, trekking 5 kilometers in Osogbo, the state capital, Governor Aregbesola pointed out that service to the society which is the cardinal principle of life is dignifying and not humiliating.

He encouraged the cadets to make the best of the two-year scheme which is planned to help improve their lives as well as the economy of the state.

The members of the second batch of the OYES cadets recruited from all the local government areas in the state are expected to serve in various fields ranging from traffic marshals to sanitation coordinators, Green Gang Paramedics and teaching service between year 2013 and 2015.
