A former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has revealed what the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar told him about job creation.
According to him, Abubakar said jobs needed to be created in order to curb the increase in crime and terrorism.
In a tweet, Omokri quoted the former Vice President as saying if jobs are not created then leaders have failed in carrying out their duties.
The former presidential aide tweeted: “Reno, we must create jobs. Joblessness is a disease and the symptoms are crime and terrorism.
“The best way to fight the outcomes is by curing the disease. If we do not create jobs, then we have failed at doing our jobs -HE @Atiku.”
The National Bureau of Statistics, NBS, had disclosed that about eight million Nigerians lost their jobs under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
