Youths constitute the most vibrant group in every society. The prospect of national  economy and the standard of living of a people could be linked to the availability of gainful  employment for youths. With the recent fall in the price of crude oil in the international  market, and the resultant economic recession witnessed in Nigeria; the need for  entrenchment of Entrepreneurship education among youth became more urgent and  necessary.
