Nasarawa State Government has concluded arrangements to employ 4,500 unemployed youths into the civil service in order to address youth restiveness within the first quarter of 2016.
Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura disclosed this yesterday while speaking with journalists in Lafia, shortly after receiving two members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who emerged victorious at the Court of Appeal sitting in Makurdi as legitimate legislators representing their various constituencies.
The governor explained that 1,500 youths would be employed as pivotal teachers who would be trained for one year to ensure professionalism, while another 1,500 would be employed in health institutions in the areas of health technology, nursing and midwifery to ensure that primary healthcare centres in the state are properly manned.
“We would reinforce health services by employing 1,500 people in the first quarter of next year.”
Al-Makura explained that a total of another 1,500 school leavers would be employed to play the role of infrastructure inspectors.
According to him, “ten youths would be employed in each of the wards in the state to go round and inspect infrastructure like schools, hospitals, bridges and all other government institutions that are either decayed or in a state of disrepair so that they can report to the centre for effective management.’’
The governor revealed that in line with the policy of the federal
government in the coming year to ensure job creation and also reduce youth restiveness, the state had evolved a template that will be replicated once it starts at the national level and called on the people to continue to support his administration and that of President Muhammadu Buhari for the overall development of the state and country in general.
