Chris Ngige, the Government minister of Labour and Job, has lamented that he and other Nigerian elites are in danger.
Ngige said this is due to the level of insecurity in the country.
The government minister made the comment spell urging employers of labour to supply decent jobs for workers in the country or face severe consequences.
Ngige, in a statement signed by Charles Akpan, the Deputy Managing director, Press and Public Relations in the ministry building, said lack of jobs was responsible for the high rate of insecurity in the country.
According to NAN, the statement said Ngige spoke at a coming together with leaders of the Independent Crude Marketers Organization of Nigeria, IPMAN, and the National Pension Commission, PENCOM.
Ngige appealed to employers of labour and Labour unions to pay greater attending to providing formal and regular jobs.
According to Ngige: “So, the elites in Nigeria are in danger, including me and all of us.
“Hence, the sooner we start talking to elites in organisations similar yours (IPMAN), the superior. So, we can curb this malady and foreclose it from escalating.
“When you refer to the nexus betwixt job vulnerability and insecurity, you smash the nail on the top dog.
“A lot of insecurity problems we have nowadays is caused by unemployment and underemployment.”
