The Federal Government is planning to create 6000 new jobs in commemoration of the International Youth Day 2016.

This was disclosed by the Senior Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Youth and Student Affairs, Nasir Sa’idu Adhama on Thursday, August 11, 2016, in Abuja.

According to Daily Trust, Adhama also said that the government was working to create textile clusters within the six geo-political zones where 1000 unemployed youths from each zone would be trained and provided facilities like sewing machines, fabrics and other equipment.

“What we are looking at is after the training, state governments will provide the beneficiaries with opportunities to sew school uniforms for primary and secondary school students in the states. This will take away negative thoughts and idleness from them,” he said.
