Ngige seeks EU support to lift 100m Nigerians out of poverty

Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, has solicited the support of the European Union for the presidential pronouncement to lift 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in the next ten years.

Ngige made this request while addressing the seventh EU-Nigeria Ministerial Dialogue, held virtually, yesterday.

The minister said Nigeria needed the assistance of the EU in terms of empowering her youths through support for technical education.

“Our technical colleges need help so that they can produce people with skills. We have diversified the curricular and we now have to give our youths the skills that will enable them to use their hands and be empowered to become entrepreneurs,” Ngige said.

“In this area, we need the EU to support us and once they do that, they would have been buying into the presidential pronouncement of lifting 100 million Nigerians out of poverty in ten years.

“We need your full and total support especially to develop what we already have as areas of collaboration with the EU through the International Organisation for Migration (IOM).”
