Globally, youths are not only seen as essential part of an emerging society and are regarded as its strength and greatest asset in the quest for development. They are also an integral and instrumental workforce that must be carried along in the scheme of nation building. In fact, it comes to reason that no country can survive politically, economically and technologically without vibrant youths, given their pride of place as the productive working class. There are 200million people in Africa between 15 and 24 years of age (Awosusi, 2012). This represents about 20% of the population. According to the Population Research Bureau, Africa has the fastest growing and most youthful population in the world. Over 40 percent of its population is under 15 (African Economic Research Consortium, 201 3). Africa's high fertility rate is responsible for this. This demographic finding portends challenges and opportunities. The challenges are economic and social; both are highly connected. As the population expands, jobs must be created. If these jobs are not enough, there will be many young people who are unemployed. According to the International Labor Organization, 3 out of 5 unemployed people in Africa are young people.
