Chris Ngige, on Thursday, said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has created seven million jobs since coming to power in 2015.
Ngige disclosed this in an interview with State House correspondents at the end of a meeting he had with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He said the administration had substantially fulfilled its promise to provide jobs, although many are qualifying the jobs in terms of white collar jobs for graduates.
"We promised jobs when we came on board, but what has happened is that people tried to quantify jobs in terms of 'white collar' jobs for graduates from universities, polytechnic but they don't want to look at the 'blue collar' jobs. We had to look at where we are and also look at where we are in terms of job creation, labour administration and the issue of national minimum wage, which labour has been asking the government to set in motion," he said.
