Learn tailoring, trading instead of waiting for FG’s job, Osinbajo’s aide mocks unemployed graduates

Despite promises made by President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to provide jobs for unemployed graduates and youths, the Technical assistant to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo on New Media, Philip Obin, has come out to mock graduates who are unemployed across the country.
This is coming barely two months after President Buhari launched the post National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) job scheme to absorb 20,000 graduates annually.
Recall that the President on August 31, 2021 launched NIgeria Jubilee Fellows Programme designed to create new opportunities for 20,000 fresh graduates annually. 
Obin who shared a post on his Facebook handle on Saturday night to mock the unemployed youths said graduates should stop deceiving themselves to wait for federal government’s jobs like the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), and go into learning tailoring and trading.
The post reads’ “Network marketing is hard,  you are shy to learn tailoring or trading because you are a graduate? Keep waiting for  FIRS or CBN job.
Reacting to the post in an interview, a fresh graduate, Anthony Uba said it is disheartening to see such a post from an aide to the Vice president whose duty is to oversee Nigeria’s economy.
”This is an indication that the government can’t provide jobs, but is playing lip service just to make us feel better. There is no hope for this administration.
“”If they knew that trading and tailoring are the only options, why didn’t they advise us early enough so we can learn and forget about schooling.
”They have failed to provide jobs, instead admitting that they have failed their campaign promise of providing jobs, they rather turn round to mock the same people whose interest they are supposed to protect”, Uba said.
Another graduate, Agatha Audu said for someone who is part of the government to openly mock unemployed graduates shows that the Buhari’s administration has no plans for youths as it has always promised.
”Every year, they keep reiterating their commitment to provide jobs or create an enabling environment for us to thrive, but we can’t even survive in doing small business due to the unfriendly economic policies”, she added.
