Edo govt to establish job centres in all LGAs

By Simon Ebegbulem
BENIN—Edo State Government says it will establish a job centre in each of the 18 local government areas of the state with a view to equiping job seekers with new and necessary skills.

State Commissioner for Wealth Creation, Cooperatives and Employment, Mr Emmanuel Usoh, stated this at Government House, Benin City, yesterday.
According to Usoh, the Governor Godwin Obaseki-led administration was committed to creating the promised 200,000 jobs in the first instance and more as time progresses.

“We are starting with three job centres, each in the three senatorial districts and will extend the job centres to every local government area of the state.
“The state government is desirous of an inclusive system where all Edo job seekers can access the job centres for information about the processes involved in securing jobs in the state.

“With the Edo jobs portal in the state, job seekers do not need to know anyone or meet anyone for jobs in the state. The data you supplied to the job portal is sufficient to get you a job. Our job is to match the data in the Edo jobs portal with the applications we receive on the portal and call the applicants for interviews.”

On the need to retrain some job seekers, he said, “Edo people are very intelligent, proud and educated people and we have been able to articulate the manpower need. All we need now is to train and retrain our youths to be fit for the job descriptions.”
