There is also Guaranteed Off-take Stimulus Scheme for Small Medium Enterprises for producers of hygienic products and packaged food to encourage entrepreneurship and industries.” 

The President, in addition, said that the National Youth Investment Fund (NYIF) for young entrepreneurs had N75 billion for a period of 3 years, all aimed at providing support for the labour force, noting that in securing decent jobs, the government was inadvertently promoting social protection and people’s welfare.

He said, “We also know that social protection gives you peace of mind and hope for a better future.

It also ensures access to healthcare and income security for all and provides for you and your family when sick, unemployed, injured, pregnant or too old to work.’

Buhari also emphasized that a happy workforce could be created by employers incorporating the decent work agenda in job creation and retention in their workplace guiding policies.

The President said, “As we all know, decent work sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration.

It also ensures freedom for people to express their concerns, organise and participate in the decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men.’’
