Buhari's administration to use recovered funds for jobs creation

Buhari's administration to use
recovered funds for jobs
creation


President Muhammadu Buhari has said the
stolen funds recovered from former public
officers would be used for creating jobs for
the youths.
The country leader made a claim on Friday,
April 29, at the NYSC Permanent Orientation
Camp, Gbakuta, Iseyin, Oyo State, PM News
reports.
Represented by Mrs Ololade Agboola of the
Ministry of Youths, Buhari noted:
“One of the disturbing problems inherited by
this administration is increasing
unemployment amongst young people. In fact,
the unemployment situation has taken a great
toll on the Nigeria youths at their prime
productive ages.




“That is why this administration is anxious to
recover illicit wealth to channel them into
productive economic ventures to absorb
thousands into employment.”
Regarding the challenges within the NYSC
system, including rejection of corps
members, infrastructure problems, lack of
resources, Buhari said:
“I have been informed that these problems
have persisted due to monumental growth in
graduate population and inadequate
corresponding resource provisions. These
seemingly intimidating obstacles should not
dampen your zeal to make the desired
sacrifice to serve your fatherland as
government is prepared to address these
problems.”
