In order to drastically reduce unemployment in the Federal Capital Territory, the FCT Administration has said that all secondary schools in the Territory will henceforth give special attention to the teaching of entrepreneurial skills to students.
The FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello made this revelation on Wednesday, when he visited Government Girls’ Secondary School, Abaji.
The minister who was represented at the occasion by FCT Permanent Secretary, Dr. Babatope Ajakaiye restated that inculcating entrepreneurial skills among students would not only make them independent job creators, but employers of labour which will not make them wait for scarce white collar jobs.
Malam Bello reiterated that this would in the long time improve the economic status of the residents as well as stimulates economic growth in general.
He said, “We are moving away from an era where people rely solely on white collar jobs to a point where people will set up their businesses and employ others.”
The minister explained that lack of diversification, is one of the major reasons for economic challenges the country is currently facing and therefore “we must be proactive as we bequeath a very sound system to the next generation”.
