Job Creation Would Stop Crimes, Atiku Abubakar Vows To Create Wealth For Nigerians If Elected President In 2019

The former vice president and PDP’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has vowed to create jobs to fight crimes in Nigeria if he’s elected the nation’s president in the 2019 presidential elections.

Atiku Abubakar has spoken out about his tendency for job creation ahead of the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) unemployment report and release of labour statistics, expected to be on Thursday, October 18 and Monday, November 6, 2018.

The former vice president who vowed to fight terrorism and crime if he’s victorious at next year’s election, took to his Twitter account (@atiku) to disclose that poverty creates an enabling environment for crime, a problem he promised to solve as president, saying job creation is what he does best.

“The most effective way to fight crime is to provide opportunity to create wealth, because poverty is conducive to crime.

“If you elect me as your President, I will equip the security forces to fight terrorism and crime. Additionally, I will do what I do best – job creation.”

Nigeria’s job creation report for Q1 and Q2 2018 was initially billed to be released on October 10, while labour force statistics for Q4 2017 and Q1 2018 is expected on October 18, according to the NBS data release calendar. Both reports have not been made publicly available.
However, the data office is set to release the unemployment and underemployment report for the last quarter of 2017 and the first quarter of 2018 by Monday, November 6.
The unemployment report is expected to be a campaign tool for Atiku especially after previous reports show that nearly eight million Nigerians have become unemployed since President Muhammadu Buhari took office in 2015.
