I have hundreds of CVs of first class graduates who are not employable – Emir Sanusi

The 14th Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II, on Thursday said many first-class graduates cannot get jobs because they lack adequate skills.

Sanusi recalled telling Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State that he has hundreds of Curriculum Vitae, CVs, of top class students who lack the necessary skills.

He was speaking at the ongoing Rivers Economic and Investment Summit in Port Harcourt on Thursday.

According to Sanusi: “The key to economic development is human capital. Investing in people is essential. Rivers State needs robust education and training programs that essentially aim to prepare the youth to be the future for us.

“Today I was talking to the governor and I told him that I am sure that he, like me and all of us, have hundreds of CVs of young people with first-level degrees.

“Unfortunately, they can’t do anything to get a formal job because they haven’t been equipped with the right skills for this economy.”

The newly reinstated Emir of Kano applauded the governor for attempting to chart a new path for growth and prosperity in the state.

Sanusi said as an oil-rich state, the natural resource was not enough to change the fortunes of Rivers, but such a feat could be achieved through determined leadership.
