Written by: YAHOO!News Nigeria’s Buhari tells youth to ‘behave’ if they want jobs-Written by: YAHOO!NewsBy Libby George LAGOS (Reuters) -President Muhammadu Buhari told young Nigerians on Thursday that they must “behave” in order to attract jobs and investment. Buhari, speaking on Arise TV, said security was essential in order for investment in the country, where unemployment rose to 33.3% in the fourth quarter. “Nobody is going to invest in an insecure environment. So I told them, I said they should tell the youth that if they want jobs, they will behave themselves,” Buhari said. “Make sure that the area is secure. So that people can come in and invest.” Nigeria has struggled with high unemployment and rapid population growth for decades, but the joblessness worsened since the coronavirus pandemic struck last year when the country had not yet fully recovered from a 2016 recession. Buhari has faced criticism over rising violence in nearly every region of the nation. Armed gunmen have kidnapped more than 700 students in the northwest since December, Islamist attacks in the northeast have worsened and there have been nationwide attacks that have burned down police stations and killed officers. Parliament in April called on the presidency, armed forces and police to address the security crisis and some urged Buhari to declare a state of emergency. Buhari said the government would take a tougher approach toward insecurity, particularly against bandits in the northwest and separatists in the southeast. “We have given the police and the military the power to be ruthless,” he said. “And you watch it, in a few weeks time, there will be a difference.” Attacks, particularly in the north, have targeted farmers, worsening food inflation, which stood at 22.72% in April. Buhari said if farmers could not operate safely, hunger would spread and the government could lose control.

A Russian court banned any groups linked to Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny after declaring them “extremist,” on Wednesday.The move bans his allies from elections and comes just days before U.S President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin are due to hold talks in Geneva.Washington has called for Navalny to be freed, and has condemned the recent court decision. But the Kremlin says it is a domestic matter and for the U.S to not interfere.After a hearing that lasted more than 12 hours behind closed doors, Moscow’s prosecutors accused Navalny and his allies of trying to foment a revolution by seeking to destabilize the socio-political situation inside Russia.A spokesperson for the prosecutors, Alexei Zhafyarov spoke about Navalny’s network outside the court:“This organisation has regularly organised unauthorised mass public events, which frequently have ended with mass unrest.”Navalny and his allies denied the allegations, and said they were an attempt to try to crush any opposition to the ruling party ahead of parliamentary elections in September.The authorities now have the power to jail activists and freeze their bank accounts if they continue their activities.The ruling also targets Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation which has produced high-profile investigations into alleged official corruption.Over the years Navalny has built up a vast political network that sought to challenge Putin’s grip on power.In a post on Navalny’s Instagram account apparently drafted in anticipation of what was a widely expected ruling, Navalny urged his supporters to not be disheartened.The message read: “We’re not going anywhere.” A group of lawyers presented a dossier of evidence Thursday to prosecutors at the International Criminal Court that they say establishes jurisdiction for the global tribunal to investigate allegations Chinese authorities are involved in grave crimes targeting Uyghurs, a largely Muslim ethnic group.

The project has been a point of contention among environmental activists and community groups for years.
