CHRIS Ngige, minister of Labour and Employment, on Monday, January 4, in Abuja denied an online publication (not Realnews) calling for the submission of curriculum vitae, CV, by unemployed youths to the ministry.
A statement signed by Samuel Olowookere, deputy director of Press in the ministry, said there was no truth in the online publication requesting unemployed Nigerian youths to submit application for employment in the ministry.
The statement said in part: “The general public is hereby advised to disregard this false directive as it did not emanate from the federal government through the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.
“In view of the apprehension the above false information has generated, it is pertinent to point out that the present administration is committed to the creation of decent employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed Nigerians.
“It has perfected plans for massive job creation through well thought out programmes such as Graduate Teachers Conversion Programme and Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), among others.”
The ministry said that the general public would be informed in due course when any of these programmes/scheme would be rolled out.
