Buhari government insists that it is possible to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty
The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has pledged that it will be possible to pull 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by 2030.
On Sunday in Abuja, Kachollum Daju, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Labour and Employment, spoke with media.
The important figures in the corporate sector, including the development partners, she claimed, remained dedicated to attaining the objective.
Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) are also working hard to carry out the mandate, according to Daju.
She declared that her ministry had launched the Labour Market Information System, a database (LMIS).
This data bank serves as a resource for people looking for work as well as those who have found employment.
She was reported by NAN as adding, “The private sector is obliged to play a big role since we cannot all be dependent on government.”
“For the Ministry of Labour, there are various departments and agencies that deal with employment skills.
“We are also planning to enhance job matching through the National Electronic Labour Exchange (NELEX), which works in conjunction with the LMIS.”
According to Daju, the Ministry has established roughly 16 job centers across Nigeria and plans to open one in each of the country’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory.
According to the permanent secretary, expanding the number of centers is one of the steps being taken to ensure that all 774 local government areas are serviced.
