Speaking at the 11th Annual Colloquium held at the Nigerian Institute of  International Affairs (NIIA) yesterday, Hon. Opeyemi Bamidele, who represented the  governor reiterated that despite being a model among others, the government will not  relent on its oars to achieve greater heights.

Bamidele said: “Lagos State maintains the highest number of workers which is about  118,000 in the country, but it is not enough to curb unemployment, and that is why  we all need not to relent.”

Also delivering his speech at the programme with the theme Youth Unemployment In  Nigeria: The Challenges, the Roadmap and the Opportunities, the Ondo State Governor,  Olusegun Mimiko, who was represented by his Deputy, Ali Olanusi, said, “we need a  lot of prayers to move forward. The issue of unemployment in Nigeria is not beyond  us”.
