President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Friday, said that Nigeria was sitting on a time bomb if it doesn’t create jobs.

Saraki, who made the assertion while delivering a goodwill message at the Body of Benchers Nigeria Award Night in Abuja, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, added that the judiciary was also key to ensuring sustainable economic development of the country.

He stated that there must be a concerted drive towards consolidation of democracy, liberalisation of the economy, and ensuring the rule of law.

President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, on Friday, said that Nigeria was sitting on a time bomb if it doesn’t create jobs.

Saraki, who made the assertion while delivering a goodwill message at the Body of Benchers Nigeria Award Night in Abuja, according to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Sanni Onogu, added that the judiciary was also key to ensuring sustainable economic development of the country.

He stated that there must be a concerted drive towards consolidation of democracy, liberalisation of the economy, and ensuring the rule of law.

Saraki said: “No two ways around this. In the next few decades, the population of Nigeria and the continent – including the youth demographic – is set to increase exponentially.

“The challenge ahead is to see how we can reduce poverty and create jobs for the youth whose numbers will treble in the coming years.

“They are not a generation that will sit idly by and watch their aspirations fade. Without inclusive government that creates jobs and opportunities, we are sitting on a time-bomb.

“We must act fast, and the Judiciary has an important role to play in ensuring sustainable economic success that is predicated upon a more democratic environment.

“The job creation stimulus we are seeking requires investment, and this depends on democratic stability. It follows, therefore, that the types of government that emerge must be through a democratic process that builds on the confidence of the people.

“It must be the Constitution. In any case, history has shown us that power is transient. Posterity is the goal,” he stated.
