The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) on Friday in Abuja urged the Federal Government to fulfil its promise on job creation and youths employment in the country.

The NLC General Secretary, Dr Peter Ozo-Eson, made the appeal in a statement he issued in commemoration of the 2016 International Youth Day.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Aug. 12 of each year was set aside by the United Nation (UN) to recognise the efforts of the world’s youths in enhancing global society.
Ozo-Eson said as the NLC felicitates with Nigeria youths and the world on the commemoration of the 2016 International Youth Day, it was imperative for the Federal Government to fulfil its promise to them.
He said it had become particularly significant because the 2016 celebration was focused on the leading role of young people and ensuring poverty eradication and achieving sustainable development.
The NLC scribe said the celebration would also promote ways to engage youths in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.
“The congress is committed to the issues of youth empowerment because only then can we guarantee the future of our nation and the sustainability of the labour movement.
“This is also in line with the United Nations 2016 theme which is “The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Production”.
“It is in realisation of the role of the youths in the trade unions and indeed the society at large that the congress has adopted a Youth Policy as part of the activities to mark this year’s International Youth Day,” he said.
Ozo-Eson said that a Youth Conference would be celebrated on Aug. 14 and Aug. 15 in Abuja with the theme: “Promoting Youth Participation in the Trade Unions”.
He said as the youths celebrate the International Day, it was important for the country to support them in decision making.
Ozo-Eson said that this was the only way that democracy would be strengthened and would also enhance participatory development for the progress of all.
“Once more happy International Youth Day celebration to all the young workers and people and do remember we are with you in your struggles,” he further added. (NAN)
