  • NBS: No data on Seven Million New Jobs Claim

Statistician-General of the Federation, Yemi Kale has said the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) has no data on the job creation claims made by Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr Chris Ngige.

Ngige had earlier said the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has created seven million jobs through its programmes.

Kale in an interview said: “We don’t have the data anyway, that data of is six or seven million, we don’t have that. I can’t comment on what other data users or data producers say but I can comment on what we produce here as the official source of data.”
