President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, promised that his administration would create more employment opportunities for young people and ultimately put a smile on the faces of Nigerians.
This, the President said in an address delivered on Wednesday, at the swearing-in ceremony of the 2016 Batch ‘A’ stream II at the National Youth Service Corps permanent orientation camp, Ede in Osun State.
The address, which was read by the state Deputy Governor, Titi Laoye-Tomori, noted that the collapse of industries has inadvertently increased unemployment rate in the country.
While lamenting the state of the economy his administration met in power, the President expressed his determination to recover the nation’s stolen wealth and used them to rebuild the economy.
“The collapse of industries and the eventual overbearing pressure to grab public jobs has put the nation in a sorry economic state of unemployment.”
“Thousands of graduates from the higher institutions of learning get frustrated daily, as they search for non-existing jobs.”
“That is why this administration is anxious to recover illicit wealth to channel them into enduring economic rehabilitation. Very soon, the gloomy situation would be reversed to put smiles on the faces of young people.”
