On Thursday, the federal government of Nigeria announced that it was exploring for measures to halt the almost parasitic level of migration.
The government of Nigeria’s spokesperson also revealed that, given that unemployment is the main cause of people leaving the country, the government has plans to create employment possibilities for its citizens.
Henry Ikoh, the Minister of State for Science, Technology, and Innovation, made the declaration in Abuja while hosting Ms. Deemah Yahya, the Secretary-General of the Digital Cooperation Organization, who had come to see him as a courtesy regarding the approaching Digital Nigeria Day Conference.
He stated that the administration is making every effort to undo the harm that the economy has imposed on Nigerian human capital.
He clarified the government’s intentions in this regard and stressed the need of cooperation with the government’s strategy. “For the world to become a global village, the synergy is what we need, capacity building is essential, and technology transfer is what Nigeria and Africa in particular need right now. In order to maintain harmony, we must work together in all areas. He spoke.
”If we collaborate and synergize in the area of human capital development, it would guarantee industrialization, when people are gainfully employed and moved out from poverty, then Africans and Nigerians would not be struggling to travel abroad because everything is here. We have all the raw materials; what we really require in terms of digitalization is for us to cross-fertilize ideas, train and retrain our people then things would be better.” He added. The guest Ms. Deemah Yahya, also made some comments on the government’s new initiative. She stated,
