An international businessman and political heavy weight, Princewill Utchay, has posited that youth development and employment is key to sustainable development in every country. He made this assertion while speaking to newsmen in Abuja, Nigeria. The businessman who specializes in seafood processing and packaging believes that the youth can be trained on how to harness the sea and other agricultural potentials in order to keep them gainfully employed, and off the street.

On the forthcoming election in the country, Utchay said that his involvement during last election was because he was convinced that Mr. President was capable of bringing freshness to the polity; hence he became the national coordinator of one of the groups that campaigned for the president’s election. He is appealing to well-meaning Nigerians to join in the bid to re-elect President Goodluck Jonathan because of transformation achievement in transportation, power, road construction, aviation, etc.

Princewill Utchay was annoyed with the way and manner the opposition is playing politics; attacking the persons of the ruling party officials instead of discussing issues. He challenged them to come up with laudable programs if they have the interest of the masses at heart.

As the country is going through hard times because of unrest in parts of North-East Nigeria, Utchay urges Nigerians to help in finding lasting solution to insurgency and other forms of youth agitation in the country. He suggested that more money is needed to maintain security in the country. He sees insecurity as the biggest irony as Nigeria is rated highly at peace keeping supports but the country is seriously boiling. He attributed this to the handwork unpatriotic elements who in one or the other lend support to insurgents.
