Charly Boy asked Obasanjo to suggest possible solutions to the current hardship meted on the youths.
The singer confessed that the youths including himself are already frustrated, using the ever-increasing unemployment, as a case study.
Speaking, Obasanjo blamed the economic woe on Nigerian leaders, saying it is not the fault of God but those in authority.
According to him, the only possible way out to enforce change is to establish better government through good leaders.
