”Nigerians will not lose their jobs like they did in 2017” Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige says

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has asured Nigerians that the number of job losses recorded in 2017 will not be recorded in 2018. Statistics released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) in December last year, showed that 4.4 million Nigerians lost their jobs in 2017. In a statement he released to welcome Nigerians into the New Year, Ngige said the Federal government has put in measures to forestall the massive job losses recorded in 2017

“I wish to assure Nigerians that 2018 will not be as bleak as 2017 in terms of job losses as the Federal Government has put enough checks to forestall a repeat of what was encountered in 2017. As a matter of fact, the figure released by the NBC must be placed alongside statistics by the Central Bank of Nigeria which shows that over seven Million jobs have been created in the Agricultural Sector. This is the only way to arrive at a balanced job situation in the country,” Chris Ngige said.
