Association tasks indigenes on job creation initiatives in Ogun
The Nigerian Association of Small Scale Industrialists (NASSI), Ogun State chapter, has urged indigenes of the state in Abuja to establish initiatives that will engage the unemployed persons especially the youth in the state.
Chairman of the Association, Segun Dada gave this charge while speaking as the guest speaker at the 5th Remo Day celebration in Abuja.
He called on indigenes of Remoland living outside Ogun State to return home and establish small scale industries in order to gainfully engage the youth.
He noted that a lot of young people in the state do not have jobs, warning that if quick steps are not taken to create jobs for them, the situation might degenerate. He urged Remo indigenes not to wait until the likes of restiveness in the Niger Delta are replicated in Ogun State.
“Remo indegines should establish businesses at home. Remo association should be to help the state and local youths who have derailed. Some of them were not well trained in school and they’re jobless. Train them and create jobs for them”, he urged.
Also speaking at the occasion, President of Remo Development Association Abuja (REDA), Shittu Ariyo renewed the call for the creation of Ijebu state, with proposed capital to be situated in Ijebu Ode. He argued that having Ijebu state carved out of present Ogun State, will help to hasten the development of the entire area.
