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. ”
