News;- How Nigeria Government Is Tackling Unemployment Problem Osinbajo Discloses

Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday
informed Nigerians that the Federal Government would
address the nation’s unemployment problem.

Osinbajo disclosed this during a town hall meeting with
youth groups, traders, and other stakeholders in
business, agriculture and information and communication
technology, as part of his two-day visit to Benin, the Edo
State capital.
According to him, the government was committed to
supporting small businesses, through funding and expert
advice from its agencies, to micro, small and medium-
scale enterprises.
He emphasised that the social investment programme of
the Federal Government was important to President
Muhammadu Buhari, adding that 200,000 beneficiaries
had been recorded while the number would be increased
to 300,000 by the end of June.
Osinbajo explained, “The important thing for us, as a
government, is to make sure that we deal with the
unemployment problem. We will deal with it in two ways.
“One, by direct employment; that is what we are doing
through the N-Power programme. We will also deal with
it by giving credit to people who want to work, whether it
is the market women, the artisans, the N-Build, N-Teach
and all that.

“Apart from that, we will also give credit to the very
lowest traders, those who are hawking, those who are
selling little things all over the country because all of
these people are hard-working Nigerians.
“And we want to make sure that every Nigerian who is
prepared to work we will give them an opportunity to
work.”
On the new housing project in Benin, he said, “I want to
commend the governor of the state for the excellent work
that he is doing. I think that by the time I come back next
(time), we are going to see some major industries here
and there and some many changes.”
