Pioneer President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) Hassan Sunmonu has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministers are bereft of ideas and innovation.
Sunmonu also noted that their incapability has enslaved Nigerians, saying they are stagnating the country.
He said this during the 40th anniversary of the body in Abuja recently.
According to him, “Some of the so called technocrats in the present government and advisers of Buhari are mere Buharist, they cannot move Nigeria forward.
”So NLC and other civil society organisations across Nigeria must fight those people who want to dwarf Nigeria and turn its citizens to starved slaves.”
He lamented that most of the socio-economic problems are a result of unemployment in the country.
“Education, health, housing and industries are core to socio-economic development of any country. And these are areas that can generate millions of jobs for Nigerians,” he added.
“Most of the socio-economic and security problems facing Nigeria is as a result of unemployment and this is because of poor or reactive socio-economic policies of both the present government and the past ones.
“We cannot prepare for the future of the world of work if we don’t massively invest in new technology through research for a viable industrial development.”
