The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has said that the objective of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty by 2030 may be accomplished if all parties concerned effectively carry out their respective roles.
The claim was made to reporters on Sunday in Abuja by Kachollum Daju, the ministry of labor and employment’s permanent secretary.
Daju asserts that significant players in the corporate world, particularly development partners, remain crucial, and that the government won’t relent until the goal is achieved.
She claimed that the Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) of the government were working extremely hard to carry out the directive and achieve the objective.
According to the permanent secretary, the ministry has started a data bank called the Labour Market Information System (LMIS) to assist those who are already employed and those looking for job.
According to Ms. Daju, the Ministry of Labor has set up about 16 work centers. She stated that the goal was to have a center in each of the nation’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
To better serve all 774 local government areas, she said there were plans to increase the number of job centers around the country.
She continued by saying that the government had a dilemma because the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) was originally established to make sure the needs of the unorganized sector were met.
