1.8 m youths en­ter job mar­ket yearly – Min­is­ter

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

If an in­dus­tri­alised na­tion like Amer­ica can only post a lit­tle above 100,000 jobs cre­ated monthly, I can­not see how Nigeria can cre­ate 1.8m jobs in a year. It will be very good if in­dices used in such anal­y­sis are shown for lay men like me to un­der­stand how such fig­ures were achieved. Of course there is a govern­ment in place and work­ing in Nigeria but a lot needs to be done to achieve the fig­ures it is claim­ing. Let there be enough power gen­er­a­tion then there will be more job open­ings. We are in­ter­ested in our chil­dren work­ing not sit­ting at home af­ter a hard-earned di­ploma or de­gree.
