GOOD NEWS: Osinbajo Declares 1 Million Jobs Up For Grabs In 2016

The vice president, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, has said that the federal government will create at least one million direct jobs in 2016.
This was contained in a statement issued by Laolu Akande, his senior special assistant on media and publicity, and obtained by Vanguard.

According to Osinbajo, one million poor Nigerians would benefit from the first phase of the Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme.
Speaking during an interactive chat with a cross section of the Nigerian community in Burkina Faso, the vice president who was Burkina Faso to represent President Muhammadu Buhari at the
inauguration of the newly-elected president of that country, Roch Marc Christian Kabore, said that President Muhammadu Buhari has announced job opportunities for 500,000 graduate-youths to be engaged as teachers.
He added that an estimated 500,000 non-graduate unemployed people would be trained as artisans.
Osinbajo explained that the Conditional Cash Transfer Scheme was intended to utilise the caution system to grant loans to market women to enable them improve their businesses and earn decent living.
According to him, homegrown school feeding programme would not only provide adequate nutrition to school children, but would also boost agriculture, create jobs and wealth locally.
Speaking further, the vice president assured the Nigerians that the fight against corruption was a continuous one, adding that anti-corruption war of the Buhari administration is aimed at not only prosecuting those involved but also recover all the loot that had been traced.
He said: “We will go after Nigeria’s fund wherever it is found and we will recover it and our country is bound for greatness.’’
Osinbajo added that President Buhari was a man to be trusted; a man of integrity.
“I am proud of our leadership and this is a great opportunity for the country to be great,’’ he added.

Charles ebere  recalls that Buhari presented a N6.08 trillion budget last Tuesday for the fiscal year 2016.
The House of Representatives said that budget would require “thorough overhauling” by the National Assembly to bring it in tune with current economic realities.
