Group scores Jonathan high on economy, employment

The Concerned Advocacy for Good Governance (CAGG), a non-government organisation, has scored President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration high on economic growth and employment in the first one year.

The National Coordinator of CAGG, Mr Olusegun Bamgbose, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Aba on Saturday that the Federal Government had put the inflation rate under control.

According to him, prices of goods and services have been stable, stressing that Jonathan’s administration deserved commendation for initiating the Youth Enterprise with Innovation in Nigeria (You WIN) programme to create more jobs for Nigerians.

He said that the programme, if properly implemented, would reduce the unemployment of youths in the country.

Bamgbose said that Jonathan had lived up to his promises of initiating measures to cushion the effects of the subsidy removal by providing vehicles to all the states across the federation.

“Generally, one can score this administration high, the states now have more resources at their disposal,” he said.

He however, said that security had been the greatest challenge of the present administration, urging the Federal Government to tackle the security challenge to further improve the economy. (NAN)
