Noting that youths constitute a high percentage of victims of illegal migration and human trafficking, the NYPF expressed sadness that human trafficking and illegal migration are responsible for the reduction in the productive capacity of Nigerian youths, as an economic block, thereby resulting in the inability of the youth population to contribute adequately to national development.
The Chairman of NYPF, Moses Siloko Siasia in a statement on Friday said that as part of its interventionist drive, the NYPF will soon launch a special programme for youths who are unfortunate victims of human trafficking and forced migration, and for trafficked victims or voluntary returnees from different countries, especially those who intend to start small businesses or those wanting to go into paid employment.
Siasia said that the NYPF, through its partner agencies, will provide sustainable skill-based training and start-up incentives to help re-integrate victims of human trafficking into the larger society.
