The Nigeria Employers’ Consultative Association (NECA) has called on the President-elect, Mohammadu Buhari to accord the economy, security, and employment generation priority in the agenda of the new government.

NECA’s President, Mr. Larry Ettah who spoke in Lagos,  said Buhari must initiate policies that would in the short run, ensure security of lives and properties as well as create an enabling environment that would create job opportunities for youths in the country.

He enjoined the President- elect to carry the Organised Private Sector along, through dialogue and consultation, in the formulation and execution of key economic policies.

“We cautioned General Buhari, the President -elect that though the tasks ahead were onerous but they are however, not insurmountable as security, the economy and employment must be accorded priority in the agenda of the new government,” he said.

In a related development, the President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), comrade Ayuba Waba underlines jobs for youths in the country as a priority for the President elect, Major General Mohammadu Buhari (rtd), for full and productive employment and decent work for Nigerians

He said: “Ambitious reforms are still needed by the incoming Government led by General Buhari to create more productive, more dynamic and more inclusive job opportunities for the unemployed youths in the country”

He however called for renewed efforts by the Buhari led administration to increase employment opportunities by creating an enabling environment for private sector to thrive, with a special focus on youth employment.
