Nigerian minister of labour and employment denies directing graduates to submit their CVs to the ministry

Contrary to the recent broadcast on the social media about the massive employment of graduates by the ministry of labour and employment, the minister for the ministry Chris Ngige has denied such news through the press deputy director for the ministry



The attention of the Honourable Minister of Labour and Employment, Sen. (Dr) Chris Ngige (OON) has been drawn to the online publication requesting unemployed Nigerian youths to submit application for employment at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment Headquarter and Zonal offices nationwide.

The general public is hereby advised to disregard this false directive as it did not emanate from the Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment.

In view of the apprehension the above false information has generated it is pertinent to point out that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR, is committed to the creation of decent employment opportunities for teeming unemployed Nigerians and has perfected plans for massive job creation through well thought out programmes such as Graduate Teachers Conversion Programme, Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), Vocational Skills Acquisition and Upgrading, Conditional Cash Transfers (CCT) for the vulnerable persons including market women.

The general Public will be informed in due course when any of these programmes/scheme is being rolled out.

 The public is hereby warned to disregard the said online publication as any person who does otherwise does so at his or her own risk especially when some of the websites have been requesting applicants to pay what they dubbed “application fees”.



Olowookere Samuel

Deputy Director (Press)
