FG not obligated to provide jobs for Nigerians – Presidency | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Industry, Trade and Investment, Olajumoke Omoniyi Oduwole, has said it is not the federal government’s obligation to provide jobs for Nigerians.

Oduwole made this known in Abuja while addressing newsmen yesterday.

According to her, the role of the government was to create an enabling business environment for everybody to thrive.

Rationalising why entrepreneurship studies was made compulsory in tertiary institutions, Oduwole said the government wanted to groom a generation of private sector participants because it is not the major driver of the economy.

Her words; “Entrepreneurship is actually global best practice. In the US, we have so many entrepreneurs and that is how it is everywhere around the world.

“The government only employs a small amount of people. The private sector is the driver of any economy, it is not the government.

“What the government is obliged to do is to make sure there are regulations, laws, amongst other things to make business thrive in the country.”

And even at that, I believe you were not deaf at that time when promises were coming left, right, front and back. If they knew they were not obliged to provide jobs, why making the promises? Madam, I think you should stay silent and let LIE Mohammed and what is her name again, ehm....Onochie to continue with theirs pks.
