How can more opportunities be created in Nigeria’s saturated job market?
The issue of unemployment in Nigeria cannot be over flogged. Jobseekers have outnumbered existing jobs in the country and the current situation requires more jobs and opportunities.
Yea we know some of these jobseekers are not employable and they lack skills and competence. But, how about the ones who have the skills and experience? Why are they not getting employed? What provisions are being made to provide opportunities for the unskilled graduates to acquire working knowledge?
How can we increase more opportunities in the already saturated job market?
Here are few suggestions raised:
Diversification and finding alternative sources of growth and reviving neglected industries, thereby creating more jobs
Develop capacity for entrepreneurship, especially amongst the youth (empower them with start up funds)
Improve business climate in Nigeria to allow investors and more companies spring up
Build a tax system that can efficiently redistribute income to those at the bottom
Instead of relying only on white collar jobs, the youths should embrace entrepreneurship, agriculture etc.
Do you agree?
