Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP have urged the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government to collaborate with the state governments to tackle the unemployment crisis ravaging the Nigerian Youths.
The governors made the disclosure on Monday in a communiqué read by the Deputy Governor of Zamfara State, Mahdi Mohd at the end of their meeting in Bauchi State.
The fourteen governors, who attended the meeting, also stated that foreign investment into the country has drastically reduced in the following alleged activities of regulatory authorities.
According to the governors, “On the economy, the meeting admonished the APC Federal Government to collaborate more with State Governments to stem the unemployment scourge affecting the youths of Nigeria, through technology and increased production in all fields of endeavour, reiterating that Government should stop paying lip service on the Ease of Doing Business, as foreign direct investments have continued to fall partly due to obstacles placed on foreign companies wishing to invest in Nigeria.
“A glaring example is that of Facebook who insisted on investing in Nigeria rather than Ghana, and is being frustrated by regulatory authorities.”
