The, who stated this at the Inter-Ministerial Training Workshop on Boosting Job Creation, held at the United Nations House in Abuja, said that the Federal, State, and Local governments, as well as high net-worth individuals and corporate organisations have been giving serious attention to job creation and as such had taken necessary actions needed to create decent jobs for the Nigerian workforce.

He stressed that the high rate of unemployment in the country could not be ignored as it was a major contributing factor to the increased insurgencies, agitations and other criminal activities manifesting in different parts of the country.

The Minister, who was represented by Director of Labour, in the Employment and Wages Department of the Ministry, Mrs Gloria Ogifo, noted that the state of the economy would not stop governments’ programmes for job creation and the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment in collaboration with its social partners and relevant stakeholders had taken immediate and more proactive approaches to creating jobs, empowering the youths, and increasing productivity.
