THERE is hope that an end may be in quick sight for Nigerian youths that are jobless in the country. Nigeria President, Muhammadu Buhari has offered a re-assurance on plans to effectively engaged the nation’s youths so that good paying jobs would be made available for 100 million people.

 

President Buhari has said that his administration’s plan to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty did not come by accident or something they just “bumped into,” but is a deliberate one that will be pursued with remarkable grit and determination. Speaking on Tuesday February 23 at a meeting with the Presidential Economic Advisory Council (PEAC), President Buhari agreed with the Council that the country required a poverty reduction strategy that will usher in a “rapid, sustained, sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

In a statement released by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, President Buhari wondered why a holistic agenda on poverty reduction was never contemplated by pasts administrations when the Nation’s revenue was at an all-time high.

I was shocked, hearing from you that, of the vast agricultural land resources available to the nation, only two percent of it is under irrigation, promising that “we will make the best use of the land. Thank you for shaking us up. We are now awake, we will not doze off again. We didn’t just bump into this, we believe it is something we can deliver on,” President Buhari was quoted as saying.
