The Lagos state government has concluded plans to recruit about 1100 people into its workforce.
Unemployment, which is a major issue in Nigeria is being tackled by Governor Ambode as one of his major projects.
The eligible employees, will be employed into various departments in the 57 local government areas.
Commissioner for Lagos State Local Government Service, Mr Olabode Garbadeen, gave this announcement on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.
He explained that the vacancies would be available to 600 workers in junior Cadre, and 500 others would be in the senior category.
The Commissioner explained that the laudable project is part of Governor Ambode’s plan to reduce unemployment and enable the residents in the state to have a source of livelihood.
He said, “While trying to do that, we have to be realistic because government wants to be sure of employing people into areas they are optimally required.
“Government knows and appreciates the level of unemployment, and for that reason, has resolved to accommodate a few more people, not minding the bloated workforce.
“We need to identify where exactly we need people, what kind of professionals are needed in certain areas, and what we are expecting from them before embarking on the recruitment.
“This exercise is ongoing. So based on the findings, and outcomes, the governor will give us the go-ahead to employ people.
He also stated that only qualified individuals will be invited for the interview, and the recruitment process would be online.
” But who are these people that will make up this number, the government does not just want anybody. ”
