The Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC today urged the Federal Government to fulfil its promise on job creation and youth employment in the country.
The NLC General Secretary, Peter Ozo-Eson, made the call in a statement he issued in commemoration of the 2016 International Youth Day.
Mr. Ozo-Eson said as the NLC felicitates with Nigerian youths and the world on the commemoration of the 2016 International Youth Day, it was imperative for the Federal Government to fulfil its promise to them.
â€œThe congress is committed to the issues of youth empowerment because only then can we guarantee the future of our nation and the sustainability of the labour movement.
â€œThis is also in line with the United Nations 2016 theme which is â€˜The Road to 2030: Eradicating Poverty and Achieving Sustainable Consumption and Productionâ€™.
â€œIt is in realisation of the role of the youths in the trade unions and indeed the society at large that the congress has adopted a Youth Policy as part of the activities to mark this yearâ€™s International Youth Day,â€™â€™ he said.
