Oyo Govt. to Create Employment Scheme for Repatriated Indigenes
Oyo State government has disclosed that it is working towards setting up employment scheme that will provide working opportunities for repatriated Indigenes of the State.
The Chairman, Oyo State Road Transport Management Authority (OYRTMA), Dr Akin Fagbemi disclosed this after a meeting with the Senior Special Assistant on Diaspora Affairs, Mrs Bolanle Sarumi-Aliyu.
Dr Fagbemi said discussions at the meeting centred on how the department of Diaspora Affairs could effectively partner OYRTMA in the area of providing opportunities for Oyo State indigenes who for one reason or the other have to return home from several parts of the world.
He said the employment opportunities would take them off the street as they struggle to reintegrate back into the contemporary Nigerian society and reduce crime rate.
Mrs Bolanle Sarumi appreciated the collaborative gesture of the OYRTMA boss, saying the scheme would serve as an opportunity for the young repatriated indigenes of the State to be useful for themselves and the society.
Meanwhile, the State Road Transport Management Agency (OYRTMA),has called on motorists to apply caution while going about their journeys during the Salah period.
Dr Akin Fagbemi said officials of his agency would be on all major roads to maintain routine traffic regulations during and after the Salah celebration.
