To help unemployed Nigerians get employed in different sectors of the economy, Minister of Trade and Investment, Olusegun Aganga, has revealed that Nigeria is working with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO)  on a national survey of unemployed Nigerians and their level of skills, which is expected to be ready by January.

 

Aganga who noted that there are many jobs in the country, emphasized that the level of unemployment remains high, which is why a board  known as the Presidential Jobs Board has been inaugurated with a mandate to help fill the gap between jobs and unemployment.

 

According to him, "For the first time in this country we have begun a national job surveys of skills gap. So that for each sector we will know what the gap is, know what is required to fill that gap.

 

"So, for the first time in this country we have embarked on that national survey with UNIDO and that survey will be ready in January."

 

"That survey will be used by training institutions like Industrial Training Fund (ITF) to ensure people are trained, but not just train but train to work immediately," he said.

 

The Ministry of Education, the Nigerian Universities Commission and other institutions in the private and public sectors are expected to use the survey, as done in the automobile sector to train more people. The  minister added.

 

The private sector will also be encouraged to set up skills training institutions, which is used by Brazil to train two million people, and this provides 90 per cent of jobs within three months.

 

The survey will not only provide job trainings but immediate employment opportunities.
