Nigerian youths lazy, unemployable, Tinubu laments



Men in Nat’l Assembly not good sportsmen, they are brutal, selfish –Tinubu

The Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, Mrs Oluremi Tinubu, has lamented, that Nigerian youths are not ready to work, even when they secure jobs.

The wife of the national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) also lamented that many of such youths are unemployable, because they lack the skills required for available jobs in the country.

She spoke on Saturday, in Lagos at a workshop organised by her senatorial office for 260 interns.

According to her, many youths only want the security that goes with a fixed income, but are unwilling to make impact, while some have no idea of how to adjust to working in a corporate environment, which she explained was the reason she decides to place emphasis on skills development and increasing knowledge base for the youths.

“This Work Experience Programme (WEP) is borne out of the need to inculcate in our unemployed graduates, the skills, work place etiquette, and hands-on experience required to make them more attractive to potential employers, and successful in the labour market”, she stated.

She said the interns drawn from the Senatorial District, would be assigned to corporate organisations to acquire skills and work experience.

“Thus, we have put together this workshop as a precursor to your resumption at your various places of assignment. The theme of this workshop, ‘Building Youth Capacity for Effective Engagement’, sums up why we are here. It is to ensure that you are off to a good start, on a sound footing and with the right ideas,” she said.
