Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, has offered automatic employment to Kwara State indigenes who graduated with first class honors from different universities to celebrate his 54th birthday.
Saraki who hosted 72 first class graduates as part of the celebrations, said it’s part of the measures to encourage young entrepreneurs to focus on Made in Nigeria goods and services.
“To celebrate my birthday, I hosted 72 Kwara indigenes that made first class honors from different universities,” he said.
“I decided to host these students to encourage and remind them that the best resource we have in Nigeria is not Oil, Gold or Tantalite but Human Capital, I assured them that I will continue to use my position to improve the human capital resource with any opportunity I find.
“Delighted that some of my friends decided to give automatic employment to some of the graduates, to start in January.
“I encourage others that might want to celebrate me to consider extending helping hand especially to young entrepreneurs who focus on Made In Nigeria goods and services,” Saraki added.
