Nigerians have been urged to stop blaming President Buhari and the National Assembly for the high unemployment rate in the nation by Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, the Chief Whip of the Senate.
He asserted that many graduates are not adequately nurtured, and he emphasized that many lecturers in higher institutions do not know what they are teaching, which has significantly contributed to the nation creating graduates that are unproductive.
This was said by the former governor of Abia state on September 12 in Abuja during a Graduate Skills Training (GST) session.
“We should not blame President Muhammadu Buhari nor the national assembly over the high rate of unemployment in the country which is causing insecurity. I’ve been a governor so I know what I am talking about.
Most of our graduates are not properly trained for the jobs. That’s why there is insecurity. Everything is not on Buhari or the national assembly. It is because most people are not groomed properly for leadership.
Going to the university is not enough because most of these lecturers don’t even know what they are teaching you. I became an entrepreneur before I went into politics and I am still the chief adviser of my companies that employ over 13,000 people so I know what I am talking about.”he said
