In an interaction with some radio journalists and producers at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday, Osinbajo said that “we expect that before the end of the month, we will engage 200,000,” out of the 500,000 unemployed graduates the Buhari administration plans to hire in the N-Power jobs programme.
According to him, the direct government jobs is meant “to keep this young people occupied, pay them some amount of money and also give them a device, which will also help them to learn several skills that they can develop as time goes on.”
Osinbajo explained that “we expect that before the end of this month, we should have engaged 200,000 of them and we are hoping that before the end of the year we should have engaged more.”
Similarly, the Home-Grown School Feeding Programme is set to kick-off in several states this month.
“Definitely, before the end of this month, we expect that several states would have come on stream with their Home-Grown School Feeding Programmes,” the Vice President said.
