No Reliable Data Yet On Unemployed Youths – Minister

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi, SAN yesterday said that there is no reliable statistics on unemployed youths in the country.

He spoke on the federal government’s plans to employ non-trained teacher graduates as teachers, for which President Muhammadu Buhari spoke on during his budget presentation at the National Assembly.

The APC government had during the electioneering campaigns promised to pay N5, 000 stipend per month to indigent Nigerians and to create employment.

According to Ocholi, the Teacher Conversion Programme is meant to mop up graduates who do not have employment but possess degrees in relevant areas that can be used to teach secondary school students.

The minister who decried lack of data of unemployed youths said, “Before we got to where we are, there was no data anywhere.

There is no data of the unemployed. In fact there is no data of the employed. It is a bad situation”.
