20 employed instantly as Gov. Abiodun launches job portal

There was jubilation at the venue when the state government offered employment to 20 unemployed graduates into the public service of the state.

The successful applicants were selected following their performance on the aptitude test conducted for Candidates at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto – Abeokuta; the venue of the launch.

 

In his remarks, Abiodun expressed his readiness to mentor and nurture youths in the state with potentials to become business moguls like Aliko Dangote and Mike Adenuga.

Abiodun noted that as leaders of tomorrow, his administration would not allow Ogun youths “to be used as malleable tools in the hands of unscrupulous politicians.”

The governor said as a ‘businessman–in–politics’ who had gone through the stages of conceptualizing, operationalizing and managing businesses successfully, “business start-ups are not alien to me.”

According to him, the job portal will continuously register employed and unemployed youths in the state with a view to providing them jobs and training opportunities suitable for their trade and academic qualifications.

“We need to engage their creative energies positively to unleash appropriate skill acquisition that would bring about sustainable development for the economy by making them net-employers of labour.

I have no doubt that our Gateway State will take maximum advantage of this portal,” Abiodun said.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who witnessed the launch, lauded Governor Dapo Abiodun for the initiative.

He pledged the federal government would support his administration for the jobs creation project.

Osinbajo urged the youths to strive towards self – development, saying they should avail themselves of the opportunities existing in agriculture, manufacturing and technology sectors as funds have been made available by the FG through Bank of Industry and Enterprise Bank.

The Vice President also advised other states to emulate Ogun in its resolve to create employment opportunities for their teeming graduates and unskilled youths.

 

Abiodun, a successful entrepreneur, real estate operator and oil magnate, pledged to mentor and nurture youths in the state with potentials to become business moguls like Alhaji Aliko Dangote and Mike Adenuga.

He assured his administration would not allow Ogun youths “to be used as malleable tools in the hands of unscrupulous politicians.”

The governor said as a ‘businessman–in–politics’ who had gone through the stages of conceptualising, operationalising and managing businesses successfully, “business start-ups are not alien to me.”

“I come from a private sector background. Without being immodest, I consider them successful.

“I am therefore more of businessman–in–politics than in politic–for–business.

“We need to engage their creative energies positively to unleash appropriate skill acquisition that would bring about sustainable development for the economy by making them net-employers of labour. I have no doubt that our Gateway State will take maximum advantage of this portal,” Abiodun said.
