Career News: Minister of Youth Development Outlines Strategies for NYSC Youth Employment & Development
Minister of Youth Development, Bolaji Abdullahi, has laid out five strategies that his administration would engage to create jobs and ensure general development of youths in the country, saying confidently, that the youths should hold him accountable in one year.
The minister, during the conference held with youths on twitter Thursday, said that Nigerian youths would be engaged for employment through five strategies in Information and Communication Technology, agriculture, tourism, entertainment and construction sectors.
Abdullahi, who spent two hours responding to conversations from youths added that the focus of his ministry would be on job placement, skill acquisition and access to credit.
He said that an aggregate study of Nigerian youths would be conducted to analyse their demography and know the suitable interventions to employ.
This study, according to him, would advise the operation of the Youth Development Fund, which is underway. The fund, he assured, would not be limited to educated youths alone.
“This first tweet-meet will help us take an inventory of the needs and ideas of Nigerian youths and the issues raised will be considered in the order of priority for implementation,” he said.
Abdullahi also assured that the NYSC reform would be very soon and would go beyond an NYSC of national integration to an NYSC of national transformation. “At the end of one year, we want corps members who can write excellent business plans rather than those who can write an excellent resume,” he said.
As for security, the minister said the total review of NYSC will go beyond security to adding value. For the 26 million Nigerian youths, who are yet unemployed, the minister pledged to collaborate with different sectors to help them.
He noted that after the first meeting, subsequent tweet-meets would be topic specific. The recent meet was monitored by the media from the ministry.
