The Federal Government has stressed the need to deepen partnership with the African Development Bank (AFDB) on ongoing projects, aimed at generating youth employment.

Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment, William Alo, stated this while speaking at the Review of Country Strategy Papers (2013 – 2019) and launch of the Preparations for the New Country Strategy Paper (2020 – 2024) between the AfDB and the Ministry.

Alo called for more funding for the two projects in which the Ministry is in partnership with AfDB, and proposed the inclusion of some intervention projects in the 2020 – 2024 Strategy Paper.

He said the Ministry has been working in partnership with AfDB on two projects since last year, one of which is the Public-Private Partnership for Youth Employment and Skills Development, aimed at implementing eight priority projects, across relevant sectors, to boost massive job creation and skills development among the teeming unemployed youths in the country.
