Make First class; Get employment. The labour of our youths shall not be in vain.
The Federal Government after the Federal Executive Council meeting yesterday, has resolved to give automatic employment to all First Class graduates in Nigeria. Speaking with reporters after the meeting the President’s spokesperson Reuben Abati stated that this was done to reward hard-working Nigerians and to encourage Nigerian students to study harder while in school. He stated
“The Minister Chief (Barr.) Ezenwo Nyesom Wike for education suggested all current and future graduate with First Class should be given automatic employment, and all members of FEC agreed with his stand. It is unfair after suffering to graduate with first class, they (graduates) still suffer to get job. We strongly believe this will change the fortune of our education sector, following the massive investment on infrastructural and human capacity development in the sector by this administration. They will make our youth study harder in school.”
This development comes barely 2 weeks after the out going governor of Anambra state Peter Obi doled out N160 million Naira to 160 first class graduates. Also governor Uduaghan had previously given N5 million each to first class graduates according to this report.
According to reports by Vanguard, following the recent Nigerian Immigration Service recruitment tragedy, the Federal government is trying to redeem its image among the youth, this may go a long way to booster the president’s chances ahead of the 2015 polls.
The Federal government is already partnering with various companies to create new jobs to help actualize this policy. In a report by Vanguard 2 days ago the Minister for finance and Coordinating minister for the economy Dr (Mrs.) Ngozi Okonjo Iweala the federal government is poised to create millions of jobs through diversification of the country’s economy by bolstering agriculture through NEDEP and manufacturing sector.
This is good news for First class graduates, some who when interviewed by Punch claimed they shunned campus romance in order to make it.
Do you think this is right? We this help our education sector?
