Akwa Ibom Job Seeker’s Killing: FG Set To Establish Unemployment Register

Following the recent killing of Akwa Ibom Job Seeker, Iniubong Umoren, Nigerian government  will establish unemployment register.

Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has described the killing of a job seeker, Iniobong Umoren, in Akwa Ibom State, as saddening, adding that it was time the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), established a youth-based national unemployment register.

Dare tweeted on Monday, “I am saddened to hear of how @HinyHumoren met her untimely death in the hands of such evil perpetrators. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I must also commend @UmohUduak1 for everything she did in trying to find her friend alive. May her soul rest in peace.

“I commend many of our youth and other Nigerians who did massive and coordinated retweets that tracked her attacker. This is the time for government to establish a youth based national unemployment register which will lead to unemployment benefits. I intend to lead in this direction. This data can be part of the National Social Register already in place.”
