Against the backdrop of shortage of white collar jobs in the country, a director with the Federal Capital Territory Administration, has called on youths in Nasarawa State to embrace entrepreneurship.
Mallam Bashir Muhammad, Director, Human Resources Management, at the FCTA, made the call on Wednesday, while hosting members of the Nasarawa Youth Initiative for Peace & Good Leadership (NYIPGL), in Abuja.
According to Mallam Muhammad, since it’s apparent that government alone cannot absorb everyone into the civil service, there is need for youths in Nasarawa State to embrace entrepreneurship as a means for self subsistence.
He emphasized that it has become expedient for the youth to ensure a sustainable economic plan that will improve economic development of the state, further urging them to embark on agriculture as a tool for sustainable growth.
The Director gave his assurance to partner with the initiative for the realisation of the aims and objectives of the NYIPGL.
Earlier, the delegation, led by its President, Barrister Faruk Mohammed Ofoku commended the FCTA director for his open door policy, youth empowerment initiatives and humanitarian services to the people of the state.
The NYIPGL urged him to continue with his good gesture aimed at ensuring the youths are carried along in the scheme of things.
