Pastor Tunde Bakare Laments Over Unemployment Under Buhari’s Administration



Bakare backs Amotekun

The Senior Pastor of Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare, has called for an overhaul of the education system in Nigeria, so as to produce the right quality of graduates.

The clergy stated this while speaking to NAN on the sideline of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s Annual Goalkeepers meetings in New York.

In his statement, he claimed that the current administration has implications on the economic development and life outcomes of young Nigerians

He further stated that the rate of unemployment and crime in Nigeria is alarming

According to Pastor Bakare, the education system should be the priority of every government in order to address such challenges and reverse the ugly trend.

“In the past, when you are coming out of the university, there are regular jobs, car loan and other facilities that will keep you in the country.”

“Right now, because of lack of jobs, job creation has become a major issue. Our young people are now taking to crime and are benefiting from proceeds of crime and kidnapping.”

“But with the right policy in place, we can inject new ideas that will create jobs for our people.”

“I trust God that the right leadership will come. I call them a new breed without greed that will consider others and begin to create opportunities for us within our countries.”

“About 50 per cent of our youth are not employed and 25 per cent of them are not employable. So, there is something fundamentally wrong with our education system that is producing semi-illiterates.”

He took the opportunity to urge the government to review the education curriculum among other things, noting that the country needs graduates better educated and able to cope and compete in the world.

Bakare also called on the current administration to introduce additional programmes that would address rising poverty and inequality in Nigeria.
