German agency decries unemployment, to invest N9b in Nigeria
The German Society for International Cooperation also known as Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) yesterday decried the unemployment rate in Nigeria.
The agency said it would invest over £19.2 million (N9.03 billion) through its Skills Development for Youth Employment (SKYE) programme to support the promotion of need-based technical vocational education as well as training and youth development in the country.
SKYE Head of Programme, Hans-Ludwig Bruns, who made the disclosure yesterday in Abuja at a stakeholders’ engagement workshop, added that the organisation was targeting 35,000 people for vocational and technical training in six states.
