The Federal Government has announced plans to create industrial hubs aimed at boosting job opportunities and addressing the escalating unemployment rates in the nation.
President Bola Tinubu conveyed this initiative during the 55th International Conference of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management (CIPM) held in Abuja on Tuesday.
Represented by Nkiru Onyejeocha, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Tinubu emphasized the administration’s commitment to guiding Nigeria towards self-sufficiency and decreasing reliance on external sources amidst worldwide challenges.
“We envision an unprecedented level of industrial activity, marked by the establishment of unique industrial hubs tailored to the strengths of each region in our great nation,” he said.
“We recognise that sustainable development can only be achieved by fostering an environment where job opportunities abound, ensuring food security and eradicating poverty.
“In the pursuit of our vision, inclusivity is paramount, we will prominently feature women and youth in all our endeavours, recognising them as integral contributors to our nation’s success,” the president said.
He emphasized that HR practitioners hold a pivotal role in shaping and skillfully overseeing individuals, turning them into catalysts for economic revitalization in an ever more competitive and dynamic global landscape.
