"Under the National Economic Sustainability Plan (NESP), Ministry of Labour and Employment adopted a proactive approach, by engaging the nation's youths in some important sectors of the economy. This strategy is intended to facilitate the creation of productive and inclusive societies in our nation. It is also aimed at shielding the most vulnerable from the ravaging effects of COVID-19 pandemic which includes, pervasive hunger, poverty, environmental degradation and joblessness", he said.

Represented by his Deputy, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, Gov Abiodun noted that his administration had put in place various provisions for job creation in its public works sector, by partnering with individuals and organisations such as the Industrial Training fund (ITF) to train youths in the State to be gainfully employed.

He added that the State Government would continue to augment all efforts of government at the central, at ensuring improved standard of living for the citizenry as envisioned in its ISEYA mantra.
