The president and chief executive of the Dangote Group Aliko Dangote on Tuesday, January 16, spoke on the increasing attack in some parts of Nigeria.
Dangote on Tuesday, while speaking with Channels TV revealed that increasing rate of unemployment was to blame for the attacks.
According to him, ”The government is working tirelessly to make sure that we resolve the issue is resolved.
”Government cannot do it on its own; we also need to do our own. The government is giving us an opportunity to also create jobs.
And I think people are under-rating how many jobs we need to create, not just in Nigeria and Africa, we need to create 12 million jobs every year in Africa.”
On how to tackle unemployment, the industrialist called for a need to focus on Agriculture.
He added: ”I think we should focus on agriculture, we should focus on solid minerals, these two can now replace oil.
“So if you have to create 12 million jobs, creating 12 million jobs especially now with technology is going to be a little bit difficult, but we have all it takes to create a lot of jobs, which is agriculture.”
