Reference to the present situation of unemployment that lingers for a very long time in the state, the Kano State House of Assembly has called on the executive arm to compel private sectors to employ a certain percentage of people to reduce the menace.
A member from Takai Local Government, Alhaji Musa Ali Kachako, raised the motion, adding that: “There is an urgent need for speedy adoption of the House resolutions on the matter to ensure strict compliance by private companies and organizations.”
However, he further stated that the call has become imperative given the attitude of our private organizations in the state, such as banks and telecommunication companies, in meeting up with the federal government’s directives of employing members of host communities as staff.
Kachako also expressed his grievances, thereby pleading for the government’s intervention to tackle the lingering issue of unemployment in the state.
After careful deliberation, the House has decided to constitute an eight-member committee to thoroughly look into the matter and report back for necessary legislative action within three months.
