Urges Unemployed Youths To Access N25bn ETF
The Lagos state Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has given a hint about more of what to expect from his administration in the next one year. Speaking in an interview on Television Continental (TVC) in Lagos on the 1st of July 2016, the governor revealed one of the plans the Government has for unemployed graduates, who have taken to streets, hawking. He said that his administration has launched a N25billion Employment Trust Fund, urging them to access the fund.
Governor Ambode while answering questions on future plans of his administration assured that greater attention would be given to the health and education sectors, while empowerment for the youth and elderly would also get the needed attention.
“In the last eight years, while the immediate past Governor actually did a lot to improve on health, you will also see that what he provided is not even enough to cater for all the people coming into Lagos.
“Now, this second year, I can tell you freely that we are facing majorly the health sector, education sector, the issue of elderly people and then the youths. We believe that in the next twelve months which we are starting from now, you will see a major escalation of the quality of the facilities we are going to provide in our hospitals,” the Governor said.
