DSC_6000“If the predictions are true that, in 2050 80% of the working population will be in Asia and Africa, African leadership need to work overtime to make sure that the continent’s ‘of working age’ population have work and play a positive contribution towards world progress. They need to realise that an actively working population is the only way to achieve innovative and prosperous economies. Its ripple effect- lower crime rate, industry growth and tons more. There should come a time when an African country’s wealth is less reliant on natural resources and more reliant on its ability to produce i.e. agriculture, power (make use of it numerous rivers) and more. My personal opinion- this is where engineers work with economists and entrepreneurs and literarily bombard politicians with proposals and more proposals till something happens.” – Yewander Akinola on engineering & the developing world
