CBN Governor Charges Graduates, Be Job Creators Rather Than Job-Seekers

The Governor, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, has charged graduating students of the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) to create occupations to defeat the current economic difficulties.CBN Governor Charges Graduates, Be Job Creator Rather Than Job-Seekers

According to Mr Isaac Okoroafor, the Acting Director, CBN Corporate Communications, Emefiele gave the charge while conveying the organization's 47th Convocation Lecture entitled: "A mindset for Succeeding in Today's Nigeria".

 He said that the rising rate of unemployment was the greatest challenge confronting the nation, cautioning that inability to empower the youth could boomerang against the Nigerian society.

He focused more on the need for young Nigerian graduates to change their mindset about the labour market, stressing that despite the difficulties, Nigeria remained a place where there is boundless opportunities.

Emefiele, a former student of the university, charged the graduating student to strive to be job creators and business visionaries instead of being mere job-seekers.

 He said the CBN, as part of its effort to address joblessness and promote entrepreneurship, the bank had outlined and created policies and projects to help coordinate genuine sector intervention.

The CBN chief urged the graduating students and youths with not over five years post-service experience to take advantage of the CBN Youth Entrepreneurship Development Program (YEDP).

As indicated by him, the programme is running in conjuction with different banks and the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).

He tasked the graduating students to take cognisance of the opportunities in their respective environments to motivate themselves by creating innovative ideas as well as turn the ideas into profitable ventures.

Earlier in is his address, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof. Benjamin Ozumba, said the convocation lecture was one of the prestigious public lectures hosted by the university.

He said the privilege of delivering the lecture was usually reserved for men and women, whose achievements would motivate and inspire graduating students and the entire university community for greater achievements.

Ozumba used the occasion to call for adequate funding of some ongoing projects embarked upon by the institution.

He said that the projects would not only boost entrepreneurship and innovation, but also help to curb youth restiveness in the country.

NCAT Rector Speaks on Job Creation for Pilots

The improvement of general aviation will create employments for some of the over 300 jobless pilots, Rector, Nigerian College of Aviation Technology (NCAT), Captain Abdulsalami Mohammed has said.NCAT Rector Speaks on Job Creation for Pilots

General aviation is the operation of private and business flies by people and associations not engaged in scheduled flights.

Mohammed, who spoke in Abuja, asked young pilots to start their career with light planes until the point that they obtain understanding, urging them to begin with general aviation as it is the ideal training ground.

As per administrative requirement, pilots for general aviation require around 250 flight hours to operate such aircraft.

The NCAT rector said pilots expected to keep traveling to accumulate enough experience to empower them wind up plainly employable by commercial airlines..

He, in any case, noted that training pilots is a tremendous weight on airlines, particularly the same number of them leave for greener pastures later.

His words: "This is the issue the ministry and carrier administrators are talking about; it is getting government's consideration, yet NCAT can't get involved in seeking jobs for its graduates. We are a training institution. We can train people, we can give references when you complete, yet we cannot get involved in getting jobs for our graduates.

“Some of them go into general aviation and fly light and medium aircraft to gain experience before they eventually qualify to go for Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL), before they can join commercial airlines. This is the practice in the United States and elsewhere,” he said.

He continued:“Unfortunately for us, every pilot that comes out wants to fly big jets; it is more glamorous to fly passenger jets, but the airlines cannot absorb everybody. If you recall, when Virgin Nigeria was set up in 2005, virtually every pilot in Nigeria applied to Virgin Nigeria. I was one of them and Virgin Nigeria was able to pick whoever they wanted and retrained them completely regardless of the background.”

He said a few years after Virgin Nigeria, Arik came on board and employed some pilots that couldn’t secure jobs in Virgin Nigeria.

Mohammed said more airlines came on board and that was when the industry started recovering including the rapid development of Arik with over 30 aircraft at a time, mopping up experienced pilots that had been in the industry.

The situation, he said, forced other airlines to look elsewhere and that was when they started employing the young inexperienced pilots and began training them.

He, however, warned on the cost of training a fresher from the college on a jet, explaining that pilots are trained through trial by fire and that it would be a humongous mistake to train a young pilot with an aircraft having hundreds of passengers.

“But when you now have 100 sometimes 300 passengers sitting in the back and you have someone in training, you don’t want him to make mistakes; otherwise those passengers may never fly with that airline again. So, it is not the ideal training environment. So, you find that the training takes too long and it is expensive and at the end of the day the airline says ‘this man is not trainable’ and they stop training – that is why a lot of airlines are reluctant to start bringing people.”

Mohammed also said the planned establishment of a national carrier would also help create employment due to migration of the experienced pilots creating openings in their present positions for young pilots.

“The creation of a national carrier will also create employment opportunities for these young men. I am not saying that the national carrier will employ all of them immediately, but you find out that a lot of our experienced pilots – when the national carrier is coming, they will leave where they are and try to join the carrier, thereby leaving openings for these young people.”

Mr. Ahmed who got an Award of Icon of Crisis Management in Nigeria from the Center of Crisis Communication, expressed this at a workshop on Information Management for Command Officers and Public Relations Officers of the Nigerian Prisons Service holding in Kaduna.

"I am happy to reveal that the Nigerian Prisons Service (NPS) has promoted more than 11,000 Personnel to boost staff spirit and their efficiency. We have likewise gathered the list of qualified officers for the next promotion exercise which will be disclosed soon," he said.

He noticed that the national government has included in next year's budget plan to recruit 6,000 officers and men to boost the capacity of the service in accomplishing its statutory commands. On the off chance that the budget is endorsed, he stated, it would additionally upgrade a few expectations both on the part of inmates and the staff in general.

He said the goal of the Nigerian Prisons Service under his leadership is to have a system that provides conditions of imprisonment above the minimum standard prescribed by the United Nations, stating that recent developments attest to this drive.

He revealed that with the active support of the Minister of Interior, Abdurahman Dambazau, the federal government approved an upward review of budget allocation to address the myriads of challenges bedevilling the service.

According to him, this singular approach coupled with prudent management of resources has changed the face of the Nigerian Prisons Service to the admiration of all and sundry.

He commended the genuine effort of some Command Officers and their Public Relations Officers that have given copious press coverage of the progress being made to communicate the federal government’s practical effort to improve the conditions of prisons in Nigeria.

“It is relevant to state that within two years of my stewardship as the Controller-General of Prisons, we have taken active steps to provide operational vehicles in order to improve access to justice for those awaiting trial; significantly improved on the quality of prison cells by renovating old ones and constructing new ones where space allows; embarked on office and barrack renovations; procured large quantity of assorted drugs, the type the Service has not had in a long while, and distributed them to prison formations and also purchased sundry items to make life better for the inmates. The ailing farm centres are also being revived through procurement of machineries to improve inmates’ training and increase productivity”, he said.

Meanwhile, the Executive Secretary of the Centre for Crisis Communication, Yusuf Anas, who bestowed an award of Icon of Crisis Management in Nigeria to Ahmad Jaafaru has called for the speedy passage of a bill on prison reforms that is pending at the National Assembly. The passage will enable all the key stakeholders to pragmatically and comprehensively bring the NPS in line with international standards.

He said: “The bill would establish a Correction, Reformation and Integration Centre to provide supports to persons in the area of reformation and youthful offenders and other related matters. The law will improve the general welfare of prison inmates by providing for educational and vocational training to inmates to discourage them from relapsing into crime. It seeks to increase public participation in the administration of prison service by encouraging the public to bring complaints and recommendations on matters related to inmate welfare to the prison service.”

Mr. Yusuf commended the Comptroller General of Prison for organising an annual capacity building programme on Crisis Management for State Controllers of Prison and their public relations officers.

He said: “Apart from organising training programmes, the Prisons Boss has enhanced the image of the service through exemplary leadership qualities and delegations of responsibilities, especially in the areas of Crisis management.”
