The Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige says the Federal Government placed an embargo on employment because the economy was not in good shape.
Ngige, who is a member of both the Federal Cabinet Committee for Economic Recovery and Economic Sustainability Committee, amongst others, also stated that the government has created small jobs and empowerment programmes to fortify social safety nets and establish social protection system.
The former Anambra State governor who spoke at his Abuja residence while receiving the Traditional Ruler of Nnewi town, Igwe Kenneth Orizu (III) who paid him a courtesy visit in a statement on Media office titled, ‘Why FG placed embargo on employment- Ngige’ disclosed that there have been pleas for him to help secure jobs for young graduates from his town.
The minister however pledged that all Nigerians including Nnewi people would have jobs when the Federal Government lifts the embargo on employment.
