 Assistant director press, ministry of labour and employment Rhoda Ilya, said the call was made when the permanent secretary, William Alo, received a delegation from the US Department of labour on behalf of the minister,  Dr Chris Ngige.

The government highlighted the need for Nigeria to increase its intervention in reducing unemployment saying that repositioning of the skills acquisition centers in the country will create more employment opportunities for the unemployed youths and others.
