Hi Kingsley,

Welcome to AdWords community Smiley Happy

If you mentioned the campaigns type and campaigns targeting, we could give better answer.
However, If your ads are approved and not serving the ads, you can check your ads in ad preview tool, if campaign is opted into search network.
Do a mouse over on bubble button of keywords, here you will find the exact reasons. It might be the case of low ad rank.
If your campaign is opted into display network, then try to in increase the bid.
I would like to suggest for reading these help center article:-
