The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Industry, Trade and Investment, Olajumoke Omoniyi Oduwole, has said it is not the federal government’s obligation to provide jobs for Nigerians.

Oduwole made this known in Abuja while addressing newsmen yesterday.

According to her, the role of the government was to create an enabling business environment for everybody to thrive.

Rationalising why entrepreneurship studies was made compulsory in tertiary institutions, Oduwole said the government wanted to groom a generation of private sector participants because it is not the major driver of the economy.

Her words;
Quote
“Entrepreneurship is actually global best practice. In the US, we have so many entrepreneurs and that is how it is everywhere around the world.

“The government only employs a small amount of people. The private sector is the driver of any economy, it is not the government.

“What the government is obliged to do is to make sure there are regulations, laws, amongst other things to make business thrive in the country.”

Entrepreneurship is very important to the economy of a country,  however the government owe it's citizens responsibility to provide jobs,  moreover creating jobs was one of the main campaign promises of this government

Exactly to the point, the government is confused, doesn't know how to solve problems, they keep blaming others and then say some irrational things, I can't believe that with so many resources, the government lacks the intelligence, coordination, organisation, and efficiency needed to turn around the situation fast, and I mean fast.
That being said the government at least should provide the conducive environment, they hardly take electrical power in South Africa, and in Ghana and more African countries are rising to the challenge, so why can't we, with all the trillions and billions and stupid many meetings, and all the Senate hearings and blah blah blah. However I see young Nigerians rising to the challenge, I hope they have all they need to change the land.

because the media and Nigerians don't question or challenge them when they are making election promises
