Despite the high rate of unemployment in Nigeria, the country’s minister of labour, Festus Keyamo said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, in the last five years has done well in job creation.
The Minister of state for labour (state), Festus Keyamo on Sunday May 31, said the Buhari-led administration has done well in job creation in the last five years.
Keyamo said this while appearing on Channels Television “Sunday Politics” programme. He stated that the effort of the government has gone unnoticed because Nigeria’s population grows faster than the rate of job creation.
The Minister Said;
“The Buhari administration has performed well in its job creation promise. The basic thrust of this government in job creation is to ‘skill up’ people so they can be self-employed and create jobs.”
“What makes the efforts of the government unnoticed is because Nigeria’s population grows faster than the rate of jobs.
“The population grows faster than the rate of job creation. On job creation, we have done creditably well.”
On efforts made to cushion the effect of Coronavirus on workers, Keyamo added;
“The FG has made a special fund available to cushion the effect of COVID-19. People at the grassroots; the unskilled labourers are a big part of the economy.”
