Former Abia State governor and current chief whip in the Senate, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu, has pleaded with Nigerians not to blame President Buhari and the National Assembly for the high unemployment rate in the country.
He claimed that many graduates are not given the proper support, and he underlined that many lecturers in higher education don’t know what they’re teaching, which has greatly aided the country in producing unproductive graduates.
This was said by Kalu on Monday, September 12 at a Graduate Skills Training (GST) session in Abuja.
“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
