FG Restates Commitment to Jobs Creation
Commitment to Jobs Creation for the youths in the country.
The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu, said this on Friday in Essien Udim, Akwa Ibom, where he commissioned the NDE/MDGs Skills Acquisition Training Centre.
Wogu said the government would use job Creation to confront the challenge of insecurity in the country.
``The commissioning of this skills acquisition centre is another giant stride of the avowed Commitment of President Goodluck Jonathan's transformation agenda, to aggressively fight against unemployment, insecurity and poverty across the federation.
``The social cost of youth unemployment to any economy is extremely high and largely unbearable.
``Government response to this high social cost, obvious skills gaps and emergence of various regional militia groups is through the establishment of skills training centres across the nation,'' the News Agency of Nigeria quoted Wogu as saying during the commissioning of the centre.
The minister added that government was making policies to reduce and eliminate poverty, particularly the target of reducing extreme poverty by 2015.
He further stated that the Subsidy Re-investment and Empowerment Scheme Programme (SURE-P) was targeted at creating Jobs for 370,000 youths, as part of the administration's effort at reducing poverty.
