President Bola Tinubu has assured Nigerians that the Federal Government, in collaboration with sub-nationals, will train more persons to fill the professional gap now conspicuous in health, tech and other sectors due to the ‘Japa’ syndrome.
Recall that Tinubu gave the assurance on Monday at Owerri, the Imo state capital, shortly after Governor Hope Uzodimma took the oath of office for a second term.
Tinubu said Nigerians should not be bothered about the mass exodus of skilled workers from the country, assuring the citizens that more people would be trained.
Speaking further, the President said the education of children and youths is a priority for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
He said, “You see the priority in industrialisation. Healthcare will receive more allocation and more attention.
“Don’t worry about what you are hearing about the Japa syndrome, we will train more people and we will supply them self.”
The President also assured the people of the South-East that “the peace you are enjoying here will be better, and we will work more to achieve that peace”.
