" Between 2009 and 2011, about 13 million youths will be requiring productive employment. Administrative data shows that Nigeria generates 4.5 million new entrants into the labour market annually" ( Federal Ministry of Youth Employment)
"71 Percent of Nigerian graduates are like bad cheeries, won't be picked by any employer of labour because they are not fit for anything even if they were the only one that put themselves forward for an employment test". ( Charles Soludo, Central Bank of Nigeria governor, 2009)
With the scenario painted above, we at AGDC decided to chart a fresh course of action in addressing the issue of youth employability in Nigeria. For 3 years we have been igniting enterprise, promoting productivity and inspiring employability.
