Garba Shehu Says FG Has Created Nine Million Jobs
Garba Shehu, media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has said the federal government has provided over nine million new jobs in the past three years of ruling.
Shehu also defended that the government has done well in fulfilling its campaign promises it made to Nigerians.
According to him, six million new jobs have been created in the Agriculture sector alone as well as the government’s N-Power scheme.
Also, he said when private sector jobs are considered, Nigerians will see that the administration has indeed created well over nine million jobs in the space of three years.
“If you follow what the Rice Growers Association of Nigeria are saying, in Agriculture alone, six million new jobs have been created, that’s enormous. Government is creating thousands of jobs.
“We have done 200,000 on N-power; 300,000 are waiting for the budget to roll out for execution and though we are not putting together but I’m sure at some point, somebody will be doing this – the jobs that are being created by the private sector as it expands, as more factories will open, as construction companies go back to work after laying off for so many years, I assure you that we have exceeded nine million in three years,” Shehu said this on Channels television.
