The Nigerian government has employed 200, 000 graduates to work as teachers and agricultural extension workers across the country.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Vice President on Media, Mr Laolu Akande, made this disclosure at the second Presidential Economic Communication Workshop in Abuja.

Mr Akande explained that 200,000 graduates were selected out of 500,000.

According to him, while 150,000 of these graduates will work as teachers, 50,000 of them will work as extension workers.

The All Progressives Congress-led administration had promised during its campaign to provide three million jobs annually if voted into power.

However, over a year into its tenure, this dream has not been realised. (Channels TV)
