Thirty-eight thousand unemployed graduates are on the awaiting list after the Niger state government employed over 8,000 graduates of National Certificate of Education, NCE Higher National Diploma and University graduates, Governor Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu, has said.
Aliyu stated this yesterday while receiving in courtesy call the Director of Education Corps of the Nigeria Air force Air Commodore Sani Naiya at government house.
He decried the high unemployment rate of graduates adding that any opportunity provided by individuals and corporate organizations to reduce the figure will be welcomed by the government.
He pledged to cooperate with the force to achieve its objective and promised to assist NAF in the fencing of its school as well as construct access roads to the school.
In his remarks, the Director of Education, Air Commodore Sani Naiya, appreciated the state government for constructing and donating the school to the force assuring that the ration of recruitment of pupils and students into the school would be reviewed in favour of the state.
He said the Nigeria Air Force would employ teachers and non teaching staff from the locality, adding that the Nigeria Air force schools were noted for maintaining high educational standards which had resulted in students of the school winning many national and international laurels.
