‘Many Nigerian graduates are drivers, cooks in Dubai’

Allied Congress Party of Nigeria has called on the Federal Government
to make the economy very attractive through job creation, saying such
would discourage the emigration of youths to Dubai, where he said many
Nigerian graduates had turned to drivers and cooks.

The National Chairman of ACPN, Chief Olu
Okunriboye, stated this in an interview with our correspondent after
the party’s National Executive Council meeting held in Abuja.
The ACPN was formed by the late Chief Abubakar Olusola Saraki, the renowned late godfather of Kwara politics.
Okunriboye said, “What we need to do is
proper planning; good and qualitative education and good medical
facilities. Nigeria has a lot to do. Many Nigerians now go to Malaysia,
Singapore, China and Japan for greener pastures. Dubai was not a strong
country, but a small island before. They don’t have oil but today they
have too much money. Everybody go to Dubai and when you get there, we
don’t pay in Naira.
“Now, many Nigerians have turned to
drivers and cooks in Dubai to the extent that the advertisement was
placed in the newspapers. I am not saying that driving or cooking is not
good. We have a grade and level. They are all graduates and they were
pushed to that level because of unemployment. There is nothing wrong
with that. If Nigerians now could go to become drivers and cooks,
tomorrow, they will become conditions lesser.”
