Chris Ngige, Nigeria’s Minister of Labour and Employment, has asked Nigerian youths to seek other means of employment as the government cannot provide everyone with jobs.

A statement released by the Deputy Director/Head of Press of the ministry, Charles Akpan, said the minister stated this during a Townhall Meeting on Popularisation of blue/green collar jobs among graduates of tertiary institutions in Nigeria, which was held in Edo State..

The Minister who was represented at the event by the Director, Special Duties and Projects Department in the ministry, Martina Nwordu, said told the young graduates that the wealthiest youths in the world at present were not government employees.

Quote
”The minister also urged Nigerian youths to invest their talent in other job sectors, as the richest youth of the world, aged between 21 and 31 years, are not employees of government but smart entrepreneurs who distinguished themselves in creative skills in various areas.

The minister disclosed that the purpose of the meeting, which held concurrently in four other geo-political zones of the federation, was to sensitise representatives of key stakeholders in graduate employment on the benefits of blue/green-collar jobs as an alternative response to the challenges of graduate unemployment.”

Good intention but with a bad presentation .And what Ngige failed to earmark is the government responsibility to create enabling equal opportunity for youths and a robust investment platform to actualize such initiatives.It is government responsibility to ensure every citizen is employed in our sector of the economy but at same time we can understand the need to support government effort by going entrepreneurs.Therefore , for actualization of such initiatives the government should make available the mechanism for industrialization and support fund for project finance.U don’t expect a youth with a theoretical ideology putting his or her theory into practice with no credit support .
