The Permanent Secretary of Osun State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Alhaji Fatai Kolawole, says the level of social consciousness of youths was low.
Kolawole made the observation during interview with News Agency of Nigeria (nan), in Osogbo on Friday.
He, therefore, called for social reorientation of the youths, saying such would make youths more responsible and productive.
He explained that the call had become imperative considering the enormous responsibility of nation-building before them.
The scribe added that many of the youths were not ready to take up responsibility, but preferred easy route to success and wealth.
According to him, hard work and perseverance make a person very successful without adverse consequence.
Kolawole, however, called for patience on the part of the citizens in the face of present economic crunch, saying that the situation required spirit of collectivism to succeed
