by Business News Report

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Alhaji Kabiru Turaki, yesterday disclosed that, in a bid to fast track job creation in the country, the Federal Government recently inaugurated national job board under the chairmanship of the vice president to create three million jobs for unemployed Nigerians in the next 12 months.
Speaking at the ongoing Lagos International Trade Fair, Turaki, assured Nigerians that in spite of the daunting insecurity challenges and harsh business terrain confronting Nigeria, the country will continue to rank as the number one investment destination in Africa.
” This nation is highly blessed with limitless opportunities for investments with a high rate of turn over, which is attractive to any interested investor. The federal government will continue to harness all the economic potentials of this country to ensure that Nigerians derive maximum benefits from them” he said.
He said other measures put in place towards achieving economic goals in the transformation agenda include: rebasing of the National GDP, which has no doubt secured the country’s rightful place as the largest economy in Africa and the 26th largest economy in the world, initiating the community works programme, leading to the creation of 370,000 jobs in 3 years in the 36 states, hosting the World Economic Forum on Africa in Abuja for the first time in this year which helped to showcase Nigeria’s impressive economic growth to the global audience and attracting foreign investments, making Nigeria the preferred destination for foreign direct investment in Africa, which no doubt will lead to unprecedented economic growth and job creation.
