Written by Kayode Sanni on June 22, 2022
The Federal Government has instructed that a portal be opened to document unemployed citizens.
The resolution was reached on Wednesday at the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, shortly before he proceeded to Rwanda to attend the 2022 CHOGM.
The job portal is expected to take Nigerians living in the Diaspora into cognizance.
The Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige also noted that Council approved the digitization of the operations of the Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund, NSITF.
According to Ngige, “The ministry presented two memos to Council today. The first memo was presented on behalf of our parastatal, the Nigeria social insurance Trust Fund (NSITF).
“As you’re aware, a lot has happened in the NSITF in terms of revenue losses and pillage of funds that have been given to that organization.
“The NSITF implements the Employee Compensation Act ECA 2010 and by that Act, Employers in both public and private sectors are supposed to pay one percent of the emoluments of their staff into a social fund in NSITF.
