Bishop urges govt to create jobs for Nigerian youths

The Bishop, Diocese of Oru, The Right Reverend Geoffrey Chukwunenye (PhD), has described as unfortunate, the Immigration aptitude test tragedy which claimed the lives of some candidates in some recruitment centres in parts of the state.

The Right Reverend Chukwunenye who was preaching at the closing service of the workers’ wives retreat at the Camp of Faith, Okigwe blamed the organizers for failure to adopt appropriate crowd control strategies to forestall the incidents at the various venues.

Dr Chukwunenye recalled that a similar ugly situation had happened in the past and insisted that the experience should have guided the organizers of this test to improve on their logistics.

He said the situation had exposed the enormity of unemployment and its attendant problems in the country and called on governments at all levels to create job opportunities for the teeming school leavers who he said were now frustrated and desperately looking for employment.

Preaching on the topic, “God’s love for us makes His judgment sure” taken from Amos 3:1-2 the prelate called on Nigerians to appreciate God’s mercy and grace which have sustained this country in spite of its numerous challenges.
