Muhammadu Buhari Has Done Well In Creating Job For Nigerians – Festus Keyamo



State Minister for Labor, Festus Keyamo on Sunday May 31, said in the last five years that the Buhari-led administration has done well in job creation.

Keyamo said this while appearing on the “Sunday Politics” program on Channels Television. He said the government’s effort has gone unnoticed because Nigeria’s population is growing faster than job creation levels.

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 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.”
