The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige has promised to reposition the Ministry of Labour and Employment to serve the purpose for which it was created.

Speaking when he received Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State in his office in Abuja, Ngige said the ministry would be repositioned for employment generation and effective workers’ protection through the provision of labour market information, vocational skills acquisition and other programme of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

“The Ministry of Labour and Employment has capable departments to promote good labour administration, promote decent jobs for unemployed Nigerians and provide occupational safety and health protection services.

“We are determined to turn things around and ensure that the Ministry perform its primary role as the focal agency of government in charge of employment generation as well as ensure workers safety and health at work places,” he said.

Also speaking, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Mr. James Ocholi said the present administration would leave no stone unturned in order to ensure that the scourge of unemployment is reduced to its barest minimum.

He said the ministry is well positioned to champion the fight against unemployment.
