Ekiti to employ 20,000 job seekers in 4 years, says Fayemi
From GBENGA ADESUYI, Ibadan
Wednesday, February 16, 2011

The Ekiti State Government is to employ at least 20,000 people into various sectors of the state economy between now and 2014. The state Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, disclosed this on Monday at Isan-Ekiti during the disbursement of cheques to 50 graduates of the community-based skills acquisition programme of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE).

Each of the 50 beneficiaries received the sum of N40,000 as loans, which are expected to be paid back within three years with the governor charging them to make judicious use of the money. Fayemi revealed that his administration had concluded arrangements for the commencement of the recruitment exercise for the unemployed people into the state workforce.

He said the registration of the unemployed graduates and school leavers, which commenced in December throughout the 16 local government areas of the state was intended to give government a database that would smoothen the recruitment exercise.
Fayemi noted that employment of jobless Ekiti citizens was very important to his administration because it formed a major policy thrust of the regime’s eight-point agenda.

He regretted that the involvement of the youths in criminal activities could be traced to the high rate of unemployment, which the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN)-led government was ready to tackle headlong in a bid to boost the self-worth of the people.
“Employment and jobs, however you define them, are critical in the life of any state. It is our vision that we would be in a position, in not too distant future, to provide jobs in the variety of sectors to our teeming population.

“Our primary focus is that at least within the four years of our tenure, we will be able to provide not fewer than 20,000 jobs.” Fayemi explained.
The governor who commended the NDE for its efforts at reducing unemployment in the country promised that the state government would strengthen its partnership with the agency to help realise its goal of providing gainful employment to the people of the state.

Fayemi pointed out that the receipt of loans from the NDE marked the beginning of economic self-reliance for the nation’s future leaders.
In his remarks, the NDE Director General, Mallam Abubakar Mohammed, noted that the skills acquisition programme would produce entrepreneurs who would provide goods and services for economic growth and poverty reduction.

Mohammed lauded the state government for its support to the NDE in the areas of provision of land for the agency’s agricultural skills training centre, sponsorship of a weekly television programme and provision of loan facilities through the micro-credit scheme.


The NDE boss revealed that the directorate was establishing a Federal Skills Acquisition Centre at Oye-Ekiti on the strength of the support of the state government.

That is a good move by Ekiti state government, if all state government can try and do something like what Dr Fayemi of Ekiti state is trying to do just like what Fashola of Lagos State has been doing, there will be more jobs for the citizen of this country and we will leave a better life when we have money in our hand to cater for our need.  People of Ekiti State and Nigerian in general we need to pray for Fayemi so that this job creation dream will be fulfilled. 
Thank Prince for bringing this information to our notice.
