FOA!! So El-Rufai’s Daughters Are Unemployed
Former Federal Capital Territory minister, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, on Thursday bemoaned the spate of unemployment in the country, saying despite his connections, he had yet to secure jobs for his two daughters, who are both holders of Masters Degrees.
El-Rufai said this while delivering a lecture at the Sixth Annual Alao Aka-Bashorun Lecture, organised by the Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja Branch.
The former minister, whose lecture was entitled ‘Impunity, Injustice and Insecurity: What Role For The Law’, said Nigeria needed to create three million jobs yearly to tackle its employment problem.
He said, “Forty-two per cent of Nigerian youths are unemployed. I have two daughters with Masters Degrees and they are unemployed. They have been at home for more than a year and I cannot get a job for them”.
Now this is serious!!!
