FG Worried Over Growing Unemployment

The presidency says it is worried over the rise in unemployment in the country

It says that over 13 million Nigerians are searching for white-collar jobs

Labour and employment minister, senator Chris Ngige, speaking to newsmen in Enugu, says the unemployment is emerging as a vicious disease

The symptom of the disease, according to the minister, are the Boko haram insurgency, armed banditry, indigenous people of Biafra, kidnapping, militancy and other crimes in the country

Ngige explains that the whole country would be consumed with social unrests if the presidency had not introduced job creation programmes such as n-power, and agricultural schemes

The minister, however, expresses concern that the job creation intervention schemes are still inadequate to cope with the level of unemployment.
