I have hundreds of resumes from first-class grads that are unemployed, says Emir Sanusi

The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Thursday, said a lot of first class graduates can’t get a job because they lack the right skills.

Sanusi recalled telling Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State that he has hundreds of Curriculum Vitae, CVs, of first class students who lack requisite skills.

He spoke at the ongoing Rivers Economic and Investment Summit in Port Harcourt, on Thursday.

According to Sanusi: “The key to economic development is human capital. Investing in people is paramount. Rivers State needs robust education and skills training programmes that essentially aim to prepare youths to be the future for us.

“I was speaking to the governor today, telling him that I’m sure he, as I do, and all of us, have hundreds of CVs of young people who have first class degrees.

“Unfortunately, they cannot do anything to get a formal job because they have not been equipped with the right skills for this economy.”

The just reinstated Emir of Kano applauded the governor for seeking to chart a new path for growth and prosperity in the state.

Sanusi said as an oil-rich state, the natural resource was not enough to turn the fortunes of Rivers around but such a feat could be achieved through purposeful leadership.
