Atiku Speaks On Plans To Create More Jobs

Published

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says he is very much interested in job creation, as it is what he does best.

The 71-year-old former vice-president said this ahead of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) release of labour statistics, expected Thursday, October 18 and Monday, November 6, 2018.

“The most effective way to fight crime is to provide opportunity to create wealth, because poverty is conducive to crime,” Atiku said on Thursday.

“If you elect me as your President, I will equip the security forces to fight terrorism and crime. Additionally, I will do what I do best – job creation.”

“Nigeria’s job creation report for Q1 and Q2 2018 was initially billed to be released on October 10, while labour force statistics for Q4 2017 and Q1 2018 is expected on October 18, according to the NBS data release calendar.

Both reports have not been made publicly available, although the data office is set to release the unemployment and underemployment report for the last quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018 by Monday, November 6.

Reports have shown that about eight million Nigerians have become unemployed since President Muhammadu Buhari resumed office in 2015.
