Stop The Blame Game – Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Blasts The Entire APC Over Massive Youths Unemployment


Stop The Blame Game – Senate President, Bukola Saraki, Blasts The Entire APC Over Massive Youths Unemployment

Senate President, Bukola Saraki, has attacked his party, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC to focus on seeking solution to youth unemployment rather than blaming previous adminisration.

He said it would do the country no good to continue to cast blame on any individual or administration on the account of the unemployment rate in Nigeria.
Speaking at a one-day public hearing on youth development and empowerment at the National Assembly on Monday, Saraki said, “Nigerian youth deserve our immediate interest, best thinking and above all, our best efforts to create workable solutions to include their concerns in our national investment framework”.
“It is futile to point fingers or cast blame on anyone else administration and/or government programme. Stop the blame game”, he said.
Saraki highlighted the factors responsible for youth unemployment to include, population growth outspacing economic growth the inability of school curricula to adequately equip students with skills for employment and inadequate industries to absorb competent graduates.
The Senate President therefore pledged the support of the National Assembly to any policy of the government or programme of the private sector or civil society organisations aimed at finding solutions to youth unemployment and developmental crisis.
The Senate public hearing which is trending on the hashtag #SenateOnJobCreation, is a continuation of the Youth Development Roundtable discussion sponsored by the Nigerian Senate on 9th October 2017.
Participants at the ongoing public hearing include, the Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Investment Program, Dr. Mrs Mariam Uwais; Director at the Ministry of Trade and Investment, Prof. Ochapa Onazi, President, High Tech Centre for Women and Youths, Dr. Omowunmi Hassan, government agencies in job creations, empowerment and youth development, as well as civil society groups.
