The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige, has rejected an online report calling for the submission of Curriculum Vitae (CV) by unemployed youths to the ministry.
A controversial online publication has reportedly requested young Nigerians to submit application forms for employment at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment Headquarters and its Zonal offices around the country.
Shortly after the report’s appearence it was claimed to be false and misleading. However, Dr Chris Ngige has assured Nigerians of the ministry’s readiness and well thought out plans to tackle the menace of unemployment in the country.
A statement signed by the Deputy Director of Press in the Ministry, Samuel Olowookere, quotes Dr Ngige:
“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 present administration is committed to the creation of decent employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed Nigerians. 

It has perfected plans for massive job creation through well thought out programmes such as Graduate Teachers Conversion Programme and Graduate Internship Scheme (GIS), among others. The general public would be informed in due course when any of these programmes/scheme would be rolled out.”
