The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Wednesday, said his government does not have jobs for unemployed youths, adding that enough hands are already at work.
In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, Buhari said this when he paid a Sallah homage to the Emir of Daura, Faruk Faruk.
The statement is titled ‘Train, educate your children on right values, the world is changing, President Buhari tells Nigerians.’
“We should ensure the children get proper education. The knowledge they acquire should not be towards getting government jobs.
“We don’t have jobs in government anymore. With technology, governments are becoming smaller, nimble and efficient.
“Emphasis should now be on skills acquisition and competence in creation and deployment of technology. During the COVID-19, we asked all level 12 downwards to stay at home, and surprisingly, the systems worked effectively,” the President said.
