A former member of the Rivers State House of Assembly Victoria Nyeche has called on youths in the state to come up with creative ideas that will bring them out of unemployment and improve their lives.
Victoria Nyeche said this at a stakeholders roundtable workshop organized by the Ken Saro-Wiwa Innovation Hub and sponsored by a non governmental organization, Stakeholder Democracy Network in Port Harcourt.
