Minister denies calls for submission of CVs to labour ministry

Senator Chris Ngige at the Ministerial screening

The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, on Monday in Abuja denied an online publication calling for the submission of Curriculum Vitae (CV) by unemployed youths to the ministry.

A statement signed by the Deputy Director of Press in the Ministry, Samuel Olowookere, said that the attention of the minister had been drawn to the online publication requesting unemployed Nigerian youths to submit application for employment in the ministry.

It noted the online publication requested unemployed Nigerian youths to submit the CVs at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment Headquarters and its 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 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 statement said that the general public would be informed in due course when any of these programmes/scheme would be rolled out.

It, therefore, warned members of the public to disregard the publication, stressing that “any person who does otherwise does so at his or her own risk”. (NAN)

    Denials, rumours, back tracking and propaganda has been the hallmark of this (mal)Administration.

      Literacy is beyond reading and writing, it also is knowing what to read and what to write.. Did you read the footnote tagged to that photo at all??? Smh

      • B. Messi

        Does his being at the ministerial screening or even toilet for that matter tell you whether he is smiling or crying?

    I hope Ngige was not initially planning an employment scam like the one Mr. Boro did under Jona. He shouldnt let Buhari use him as an example in the fight against corruption.

    I wish the online publication was true! I, a sociology graduate would have applied for the position of a medical doctor in the Federal Ministry of (mis)Employment. After all, the round peg in the round hole of the Ministry is a certified medical practitioner in (a) Labour room!
