In advanced and emerging economies, how productive jobs are created and how labour is absorbed are important issues to development planners. A recent survey in the UK showed that 91 out of every 100 graduates from Higher Education were in work or further study after 6 months of course completion.
In Nigeria, the issue of unemployment and underemployment has become a perennial problem. The consequential effect of this menace on the issue of insecurity reflects in the rate and number of criminal activities involving Nigerian youths.
In Ekiti, the greater majority of our youths are doing NOTHING. The lucky ones are in peasant farming, petty trading, okada riding, or private school teaching. Others are engaged in whatever is available – full-time politics, miscreancy, fraud or other forms of demeaning endeavours.
Being a privileged one of you, who shared the same pains with you growing up in Ekiti, who saw and tasted poverty like you, and who only secured his liberation from the terrible jaws of poverty through gainful employment immediately upon graduation, I will do everything possible to arrest this ugly trend by the grace of God. My team and I have taken it as a core task to finally bring a long-lasting solution to unemployment in the state. We will improve the educational system, advance labour market flexibility, and improve geographical mobility as being articulated in our agenda.
One thing is crystal clear, I can not achieve anything without your support. Your support will be greatly needed for my team to form the next government in Ekiti. Our plans are clear about job creation, which will be built around 5 Sectors + 1, namely: Agriculture, Education, Healthcare Services, Manufacturing/Processing, Entertainment/Recreation/Sports plus ICT.
We are ready but your support is very key to our success. Speak to someone today about Kayode Adaramodu.
