Creation of new universities increases unemployment – NDE DG




The Director General of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), Mallam Abubakar Mohammed, has stated that the creation of more universities is increasing the unemployment situation in the country.
According to the DG, instead of establishing new universities, the government should focus their attention on small scale businesses that could provide employment for the majority of the populace.
Mohammed, who made this dislosure at the conclusion of the training of 400 youths in Ogun State, added that failure to solve the unemployment challenge could result in frustration and give rise to youth restiveness, prostitution and robbery, among others.
The training, which was tagged, ‘NDE Enterprises and Finance Counseling Clinic,’ was developed to equip unemployed graduates of tertiary institutions with business skills.
The DG was represented by the NDE Co-ordinator in Ogun State, Femi Oyenakan, at the event.
