Nigeria: Government has Created Almost 9 Million Jobs - Garba Shehu

 

Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to the Muhammadu Buhari, Mr Garba Shehu has once again given the Buhari led administration very high marks for performance. According to him, this administration has performed well with regards to fulfilling its campaign promises to Nigeria.

He made this known while speaking on Channel Television program “Sunday Politics”.

Garba specifically mentioned Buhari’s promise to create 3 million jobs yearly, saying “We have done as much as that if not more”.

He claimed that the Agriculture sector and the N-Power scheme alone created about 6 million jobs. According to him, adding private sector jobs raises this number significantly.

He said “If you follow what the Rice Growers Association of Nigeria are saying, in Agriculture alone, six million new jobs have been created, that’s enormous. Government is creating thousands of jobs.

“We have done 200,000 on N-power; 300,000 are waiting for the budget to roll out for execution and though we are not putting together but I’m sure at some point, somebody will be doing this – the jobs that are being created by the private sector as it expands, as more factories will open, as construction companies go back to work after laying off for so many years, I assure you that we have exceeded nine million in three years”.

On the submission by some that this administration over promised and is now overwhelmed, he said “Did we overestimate of over-hype our promise? not at all.

“The president had a clear understanding of the problems that the country faced and set out clearly to achieve those objectives”.
