Lagos Opens Centres To Fight Unemployment

Government on Tuesday said it had set up job registration/labour exchange centres to create jobs for the unemployed and underemployed residents.

The newly deployed Commissioner for the Ministry of Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yussuf, who said this during a tour of some of the centres, added that the initiative would be used to train job seekers in vocational skills.

She said, “The labour exchange centres were established in all the local government areas to register unemployed graduates for skill acquisition in their areas of interest and also to provide accurate data and statistics of unemployed youths for placement in the private and public sectors. However, the wealth creation ministry will focus more on skill acquisition.

“Interested youths will be trained in the centres across the state. The beneficiary will also be empowered with start-up capital through the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund.”

The Chairman of the Ikorodu Local Government Area, Wasiu Adesina, in his welcome address, said the council was ready to collaborate with the ministry to find jobs for the trained youths in his local government area to reduce the unemployment.

The commissioner also visited the centre’s offices in the Eti-Osa and Epe councils.
