The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) has urged the Federal Government to fulfill its promise on job creation and youths employment in the country. The NLC General Secretary, Dr Peter Ozo-Eson, made the appeal today in a statement he issued in commemoration of the 2016 International Youth Day.
August twelfth of each year was set aside by the United Nation (UN) to recognize the efforts of the world’s youths in enhancing global society.
Ozo-Eson said the 2016 International Youth Day is particularly significant because the 2016 celebration is focused on the leading role of young people and ensuring poverty eradication and achieving sustainable development.
The NLC scribe said the celebration will also promote ways to engage youths in becoming more actively involved in making positive contributions to their communities.
He said that a Youth Conference will be celebrated on the fourteenth and fifteenth of August in Abuja with the theme: “Promoting Youth Participation in the Trade Unions’’.
