The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has described the killing of a job seeker, Iniobong Umoren, in Akwa Ibom State, as saddening.
Umoren, a Philosophy graduate of the University of Uyo, Iniubong Umoren, was found dead by the police on Sunday, four days after she was declared missing.
While reacting to her sudden death, Dare said that it was time the President Muhammadu Buhari administration to establish a youth-based national unemployment register.
Dare tweeted, “I am saddened to hear of how @HinyHumoren met her untimely death in the hands of such evil perpetrators. My heart goes out to her family and friends. I must also commend @UmohUduak1 for everything she did in trying to find her friend alive. May her soul rest in peace.
“I commend many of our youth and other Nigerians who did massive and coordinated retweets that tracked her attacker. This is the time for government to establish a youth based national unemployment register which will lead to unemployment benefits. I intend to lead in this direction. This data can be part of the National Social Register already in place.”
