President Obama gave a speech before the African Union on Tuesday where he argued that the continent must begin creating jobs for its people if they wish to stave off political instability.
“Africa will need to generate millions more jobs than it is doing now. And time is of the essence.
The choices made today will shape the trajectory of Africa — and therefore the world — for decades to come. We need only look to the Middle East and North Africa to see that large numbers of young people with no jobs and stifled voices can fuel instability and disorder.”
