The Honorable Minister of state for labour, Festus Keyamo SAN on Sunday May 31, said the Buhari-led administration has done well in job creation in the last five years.
Festus Keyamo said this obviously hitting at critics while appearing on Channels Television “Sunday Politics” programme.
He also stated that the effort of the government has not been noticed because Nigeria’s population grows faster than the rate of job creation, hence hiding the progress made by Buhari on 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.”
While addressing the efforts made by the government to curtail covid19 in the country, he said
“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.”
