Jonathan seeks global support for job creation

President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday in
Abuja appealed to international
development partners and the private sector
to support the Federal Government’s effort
at creating jobs for the youth.
The President made the call at the launch of the
Second Phase of the Youth Enterprise with
Innovation in Nigeria (YouWin) programme.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the
second phase of YouWin launched at the Banquet
Hall of the Presidential Villa was targeted at young
women entrepreneurs.
The President said the second phase was initiated to
focus on harnessing the brilliant ideas, innovative
acumen and drive that vibrant young Nigerian
women possessed.
He said 1,200 award winners would be selected
across the six geo-political zones, in which each
beneficiary would receive between N1 million to N10
million in addition to other training programmes.
Jonathan called on relevant stakeholders including
international development partners and the private
sector to join hands with government in the
execution of the programme.
