February 21, 2016 – Northern Youths Warn PMB to Create Jobs now or Risk Being Rejected in 2019- Oruma

We want to sincerely appreciate Mr. President for meticulously placing Nigeria on a right track in line with his anti-corruption crusade. The PDP led-government that destroyed our collective patrimony and instituted corruption with high level of impunity is no longer relevance in today scheme of things.

Yes the government of the day claimed to have recovered so much monies from the proceeds of the looted fund and Treasury Single Account (TSA) in the last few months yet with the blame game publicly orchestrated by the National Assembly in the name of figure- discrepancy or God knows what? continue with the hope of the Nigerian youth gradually being eroded or relegated to the back seat as each day passes-by to no avail. To him his hope is anchored on the passing of the budget for any meaningful engagement in the system but he or she is asked to wait for a little longer since N5,000.00. monthly stipends promised the vulnerable unemployed Nigerians during the election could not be attained at the moment.

It is time the Federal Government through the Office of Labour and Productivity in conjunction with National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) start compiling the list of unemployed eligible Nigerians both merited for formal and informal sectors. No minister must wait for PMB to do the thinking for him and if he or she has nothing to offer, we would practically help Mr. President to prepare his sack letter, as nine (9) months in the life of Nigeria where every Nigerian is a government to himself in terms of providing security, water, health, electricity and so on could not be regarded as no small time to be wasted for waiting for policy direction from the presidency where each body concerned ought to be up and doing.

The majority of the Nigerian youths have exhibited high level of moral decorum and patience in the face of hardship over the years but the politicians preaching Change and patience had never forfeited their allowance for once as sacrifice talk less of reducing it despite the crippling economy. We challenge anybody be it in APC or PDP that they are only there to service their pocket and answer their father’s name, as their action and inaction clearly demonstrate that the Nigerian youth are the real looser in this fight. With their looted or illicit fund they mortgage the future of our youth through violence and other social vices that could guarantee and protect their empire.

However, in all of these we want to still believe President Muhammadu Buhari is for Nigeria and the National Assembly members whom President Obasanjo branded as corrupt-criminals are the real enemy of Nigeria, not minding their online media advocacy towards the down trodden. Or if we may ask, is Senate President Senator Abubakar Bukola Saraki a wheel in the clock of PMB’s progressive Agenda? Despite the collapse of the Nigerian economy following the dwindling oil price at the International market, the luxurious lifestyle of our executives, judiciary and legislators remained constant with penchant for more. So heartless that they have milked Nigerian economy to the tune of billions of Naira without doing nothing other than recess upon recess.

Nigerian youth sent PDP and their agents packing not only because of their cluelessness but because of the institutional corruption with unending- impunity. It is on record that the Nigerian youth voted overwhelmingly for PMB because they believed he is the only man with the poor at heart not minding whose ox is gored when it comes to discipline and fighting corruption head-on, but it all seems the honey moon might be over before he even settled down for the actual work of governance. The frustration in the land is that of injustice against the Nigerian youth, corruption has denied them so much more that no further excuse as to further delay their destiny in a government they willingly invested their emotional intelligence in the name of Change could no longer be tolerated forthwith.

Let us not forget in a hurry that many in the National Assembly especially those of the APC ride on the crest of President Muhammadu Buhari to get there only to show us their true colour through betray and treacherous act amounting to undermining the Change mantra being preached.

On this final note, we appeal to his Excellency President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the unemployment challenges in no distant time with or without budget, as nine months of wait and patience for the Nigerian youth have turned those in government who preaches Changes into millionaire, a paradox that can never be accepted in whatever standard or imagination of some sort.

Long live his Excellency, PMB!
Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria!!
Long live the Northern Youths Intellectual-Advocacy Forum (NYIF)!!!

    The govt can never create emplyment for the teeming thousands and millions that need it. Any govt that says it will is clueless as well as deceitful.

    What I need the Nigerian govt to do is to build standard roads and then stabilize our power supply. If these conditions are met, jobs would create themselves. Do you know how many Nigerians lost their jobs when Michelin folded up and crossed over to Ghana? It was this perenial power problem that drove them away. Toyota has a manufacturing plant in South Africa, translating to at least a thousand jobs for its citizens. Why did they not choose Nigeria, the Giant of Africa? No. The cost of production would he very high due to fuel to power their equipment. This is the same reason why several other companies cannot dream of berthing on a Nigerian soil.

    Moreover, with good roads and steady electricity, an average Nigerian can survive on his own. The petty business he does is made easier. Then when there is a political rally, you may not have time to go and wear a cheap branded T-shirt because you would be attending to your business.

    Our polititians know all these. That is why they will never give Nigerians the basic things they need. They just keep promising employment upon employment to keep garnering gullible supporters to their side.

      Great explanation from you-Metu Nyetu. In those powerful and productive economies around the globe like the United States, China, Japan, Germany,and Britain just to mention a few, their government doesn’t create jobs but they formulate business friendly policies with standard infrastructures to enable private sector to create jobs. For example, any nation with interrupted supply of electricity, insecurity, poor infrastructures, declining education, corruption, and with no innovation in science and technology can never attract business creators or private sector or investors to her.There are reasons Why no foreign and domestic investors will invest billions of dollars in unstable environment with no infrastructures and insecurity like the Northeast region. It is also important to remind us that PMB was sworn in just nine months ago with declining crude oil price, insecurity, collapsing economy, decaying infrastructures, poor education, and shattered government. In fact, he inherited from Jonathan administration the worse ever situation as Nigerian President since the independent. He is not a magician but a leader, what have been destroyed by crooks, criminals, and looters for over 35 years can not be replaced, repair or restore in 4 or 8 years. Building or rebuilding always takes great planning, great ideas, resources/money, patient, and time; but to destroy require carelessness, heartless mind, and an highly corrupt minds. With the drastic falling of crude oil price that account for more than 90% of our annual revenue in the international market, is going to get really rough, painful, and stressful before things will start Fallin to places. The surplus of over $900 billions realized from oil when it was at $150/barrel would have been deploy right now to hedge our economy, but Predident Jonathan and his heartless team of corrupt bastards embezzled all the money. When you think is bad now, imagine would have become of Nigeria at moment if Jonathan was in power against the will of overwelmng majority of our people. Let us pray and give PMB time and our support at the challenging and difficult times.

      @Metu Nyetu, you are absolutely correct. The government should make situation conducive for business to strive. The epileptic state of electricity in Nigeria is what is driving businesses away to other African countries and this creates massive unemployment the country is witnessing today. Government will create government job which is limited. Nigeria’s businesses currently run on generator which is very shameful. Generator economy is equal to zero. This goes to show that Nigeria leaders are myopic in thought. They do not look into the future. This confirms what Donald Trump said about them that all they do is steal their countr’ys money and bank overseas while their people are going hungry.

    O Lord ! But how? If he creates jobs only the educated ones will be hired. We never developed a working structure in Nigeria. Buhari inherited garbage economy; we rely heavily on importation of goods and services. Development takes place when exportation outstripped importation, even those who made their money in Nigeria and the looters spend their money outside the country, so how do you create or encourage spend at home culture? Nigerians in the diasporas are the only reason Nigeria is still a country; reason- the remittances we make to friends and relatives back home. Billions of dollars are sent home for varieties of purpose (I think Nigeria is fourth in the World when it comes to sending money back home). Finally, those sons of disobedience (Satan) that deprived Nigeria of Chief Awolowo’s deft administrative prowess are the architect of our doom and God will vehemently punish them in this life and after. Amen.

    Pmb is not confused neither is he working with corrupt cabinets. buhari has in an interior motive which no one know about. Is not that he cannot be able to create jobs for Nigerian youth he just don’t want to do it. since his regime just like before things are now hard for Nigerians things are very expensive, companies are folding no foreign investors. just look at ExxonMobil they have sacked nothing less than 300workers since January and they are yet to sack more. They thing we Nigerians can do now to watch and pray for Gods intervention.

    @ Omokehinde and Uzoma, you guys did grab my exact point. Nigeria’s problem is solvable if only our polititians would speak less English. I hate it any time they say this or that had been “put in place”. I keep wondering what they mean by that phrase.

    Our leaders simply like to feel like gods. They can only sustain the worship or the masses if they keep them in pepertual depravity. Who says they don’t know that the government cannot employ everybody?

    In its own veins, it is time we stopped blaming GEJ’s government for what Nigeria is facing at the moment. No doubt that it was very corrupt, but a manager who continually blames his predecessor for every downside unwittingly betrays his own incompetence. The fall in crude oil price is nobody’s fault. I even love it. Maybe that is what will wake us up.

      The beginning of all things matter in government and all human affairs. Even God Almighty support that notion as written in the Bible, “What can a righteous do if the foundation is faulty or messy” Only a wicked and biased person will solely blame Jonathan for our current setbacks, poverty, and economy collapse. IBB, Abudulsalam Abubakar, Obasanjo, Sanni Abacha are also known criminals and looters. But Jonathan was the dumbest of all of them that made a bad situation worse in just six years. PMB cannot perform magic in 9 months with crude oil price at its lowest at $23/ barrel. It will take at least 16 to 20 years of good governance, accountability, security, quality, and massive investment in Agriculture to put our beloved nation on the right track. This is my point.

    When the white man gave Nig her independence, he took with him the wheels upon which our independence was supposed move. When our colonial master left, he left in flesh but, his spirit still has its formidable abode amongst us.

    Our great ancestors gave their all for the freedom of this great country. They had the right vision of a great country at heart, not withstanding that they had shreds of interest of the respective regions they come from at the back of their minds. However, they resolved to work together for the emancipation of their heartthrob (our dear NIGERIA).

    When they the goal of Independence was achieved, our HEROES past, shone the light to the right path and showed us the keys to the way as embodied in our national coat of arms/moto(UNITY, faith, PEACE and PROGRESS) and also in the last two words of our national anthem(PEACE AND UNITY).

    These(UNITY AND PEACE), were the wheels the white man has since our pseudo-independence made elusive to my dear country. A situation of, the more you look, the less you see scenario.

    Not until we recover those two wheels from the spirit of the white man, we will not make any headway because, we are left to grope in darkness without them.

    The situation at the national assembly gives us a very clear picture of what is wrong with this country.
