Wabba said, “There is no difference between unemployment and insecurity; it is a fact and has been established.

“Decent jobs are very important because without decent jobs there will be no security, no social progress for everybody. That is why the SDG 8.7 has been tied to having decent jobs.”

On his part, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, who was represented at the event by Special Adviser on Media, Nwachukwu Obidiwe praised the Muhammadu Buhari government high in the aspect of youth employment.

He said in the past six years of the Buhari administration, a lot of achievements have been recorded in terms of job creation and youth employment, and empowerment.

He noted that on a yearly basis, Nigeria turns out thousands of youths into the labor market.

In other news, controversial Islamic cleric, Ahmad Gumi, on Sunday warned against declaring bandits as terrorists, adding that the decision will come with a prize.

This is coming after lawmakers in the National Assembly charged President Muhammadu Buhari to declare bandits as terrorists following attacks in the Northern part of the country.

Gumi in a post on his Facebook account noted that the actions of bandits in the Northwest which has seen innocent people killed are tantamount to terrorism.

He, however, said the moment bandits are declared terrorists, the direct foreign Jihadist movements will set in force, and many unemployed youths may find it palatable and attractive.

Gumi added that nothing stops kinetic actions from going on without the controversy of semantics.

Makinde said the committee was alerting “members of our party and members of the public that we are aware of the actions of a few misguided PDP members who have approached the High Court in Kaduna in an attempt to prevent our great party, the PDP from holding its National Convention on October 30 and 31, 2021.

“Notwithstanding their right to approach a court of competent jurisdiction to air their grievances, we maintain that the National Executive Committee of the PDP has acted in good faith in fixing our convention for October 30 and 31. It is not meant to witch-hunt anyone or to truncate anyone’s mandate.”

The Oyo State governor charged the party faithful to ignore distractions and keep the focus on the progress of the party.

The statement further read, “Therefore, we call on all members and supporters of the PDP to ignore this distraction as we prepare to host a convention that will send a clear signal to Nigerians that the PDP is the only party that has the will and the might to rescue Nigeria from the catastrophe that we have been enduring for the past six years.

“We are aware that a united PDP is a threat to the forces that seek to divide us. Therefore, we urge our teeming supporters nationwide to keep the faith as we are taking all necessary measures to ensure that we will not be distracted from our goal.”

The committee, he said, was determined to strengthen the party structure and put in the work needed to unify and restore Nigeria on the path to economic prosperity and greatness.
