Soile said that they were out to make their voices heard in the best way.

Mr Kehinde Teniola, a protester also said that many of the youths had at least first degree but are not employed.

Teniola said that: “it is only in Nigeria that you will see a 40year old man that still lives with his parent.

“Why can’t Nigeria youths do well in their various endeavours like they do when they relocate abroad? because there is no enabling environment for them to strive well”.

Also, Semit Dechamelon, an observer expressed concerns at the rate of unemployed youths in the country.

He said that the dwindling state of the economy has made livelihood difficult for many households.

“Many parents find it difficult to take care of their children including their young graduates who are still living with them.’
