By Ade Adesomoju

The Punch reports:

Ex-Federal Capital Territory minister, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai, has revealed that his daughters, who both have Masters Degrees are unable to get jobs despite his connections.

On Thursday while delivering a lecture at the Sixth Annual Alao Aka-Bashorun Lecture, organised by the Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja Branch, he lamented the spate of unemployment in the country.

“Forty-two per cent of Nigerian youths are unemployed,” he said.

“I have two daughters with Masters Degrees and they are unemployed. They have been at home for more than a year and I cannot get a job for them.

“We are sitting on a demographic time bomb and unless we have visionary leaders that are able to plan for the future, we will have a huge problem.”

According to reports, the former minister, whose lecture was entitled Impunity, Injustice and Insecurity: What Role for the Law,' said Nigeria needed to create three million jobs yearly to tackle its employment problem instead the Nigerian government is spending N2bn daily on security.
