Go and Learn Carpentry, Plumbing – Buhari’s Minister Tells Unemployed Nigerians

Posted by on April 24, 2019>



Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, has advised Nigerians to carpentry, plumbing, and not focus only on white collar jobs.
Ngige believes Nigeria’s high unemployment rate can be greatly reduced if more Nigerians embrace blue collar jobs that are largely neglected.
He made this known during an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.

The Minister noted that the Federal Government has an established vocational skills policy, but that Nigerians think blue collar jobs are beneath their status. He said;
“It (unemployment) was an issue and that was why we did an advocacy and told people not to look at only the white collar jobs. There are blue collar jobs. Skills. You have to train your hands. You have to do plumbing, carpentry, tailoring.
“We had to do the vocational skills policy. The NDE (National Directorate of Employment), one of my parastatals, has at least three or four vocational skills programmes.
“We have our specialist skills centres in Lagos, Ibadan, Kaduna, Bauchi, Calabar, Warri, Enugu, and all over the federation.
“We now have many in collaboration with the state governments. We send them people to train them. And people come in there as apprentice and after we finish with them, we empower them.
“But the problem is that, how many people are ready to come there and train?
“They regard those jobs as jobs that don’t befit people’s status, but it’s not true. We’re counselling people that going to do these jobs doesn’t make you an inferior person.
“But here, everybody wants a (white) collar job. They want to stay in air-conditioned office. They want to work in the bank or oil companies and nothing less than that.”
