STOP BLAMING JONATHAN, CREATE JOBS FOR YOUTHS NOW. - SARAKI TELLS FG

Senate President Bukola Saraki has called on the federal government, the National Assembly, the private sector and the civil society, to as a matter of urgency, focus attention on youth unemployment and development crisis facing the county.
He said, it would do the country no good to continue to cast blame on any individual or administration on the account of unemployment rate in Nigeria.
Speaking at a one-day public hearing on youth development and empowerment at the National Assembly on Monday, December 11, 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 any one else administration and/or government programme”, he said.
Saraki highlighted the factors responsible for youth unemployment to include, population growth outspacing economic growth; 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.
