Abike Dabiri speaks out on the exploitation of desperate youths today

The House of Reps member, like most people, is not happy with what happened this morning during the National Immigration Service Test which occurred across stadiums in Nigeria. 6 people have been confirmed dead. N2b raised from application fee...someone has to account for that money. Continue to see more tweets...

MADAM I KNOW U LOVE NIGERIA SO MUCH, AS A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE, WHY CAN'T YOU SPEAK ON THE BOGUS SALARY YOU TAKE AND THE ALLOCATION YOU RECEIVE. IF YOU HAVE USE THEM TO DEVELOP YOUR COMMUNITY I THINK MORE PEOPLE WILL GET JOB AND IT WILL REDUCE THE EFFECT OF WHAT HAPPENED TODAY

An exam that was slated for 7am and did not start till 4pm, and there was no paramedics on ground, not until somebody died before the paramedics team arrived, somebody should please sue the government, sue the interior minister, sue the controller general of the immigration
And Linda dear, its 7 people that died not 6, a friend of mine was there and told me its 7

I can't help but weep 4 my dear country,a country where d life of youths and d unemployed have becum meaningless,a country where applicants are made to pay 1k for application into d Nigerian Immigration service, yet end up loosin deir lives jst 2 write an exam dat probably d political elites have alredi submitted d names of deir candidates.An Immigration dat can't conduct a hitch free aptitude test nationwide wit proper crowd control mechanism,hw can dey man our borders and effectively check d influx of immigrants? D system failure in Nigeria is becomin too worrisome and gettin to a camotose state.Where is d hope for d youths of d nation?Y can't we create d condusive environment 4 young Entrepreneurs 2 thrive instead of jumpin 4rm one aptitude test 2 anoda.We must all take dis issue of unemployment very seriously and continue to mount pressure on d Govt both at Federal and State to do d needful. Sympathy 4 d unemployed or underemployed or payin lip service to unemployment won't help us,it cud v bin any of us 2day( some1 wud say God forbid) but til we face d reality on ground and continue to hold Govt @ all levels accountable,we wud remain in dis very sori state we find ourselves.may d souls of d departed youths rest in perfect peace .God help our dear country. NIGERIA IS INDEED A FAILED STATE

Madam park well joor,which laws have you people passed to make environment conducive for SMEs? How far have the reps and senate gone to make sure interest rate is brought to 2.5% for the youths to borrow money and establish their own firms? How much do they (NASS MEMBERS)collect as allowances and salaries ? Let Abike Dabiri and her APC stop playing politics with everything.

Dear Nigerian youth, please refuse to be dragged into the religious and ethnic schisms the clueless ruling class uses to divide us. The time has come to speak with one voice and tell these clowns that Nigerians cannot be dying in war casualty numbers while they travel round the country attending and addressing rallies.
Any government that cannot provide solutions to our numerous challenges like unemployment should be voted out of office. My heart bleeds for the deceased and go out to the bereaved.

Shyla said...

This was really a very bad thing that happened to people today. Who conducts exams in a stadium? And also charged them 1k each? Someone or some people have to be held responsible for the death of these youths. This is really not good enough at all. What if Boko Haram capitalized on this crowd and bombed them all???this is really sad. Apparently all these ones here are here for nothing cos the real people already have their employment papers in place. Which way Nigeria? Oya to the Comptroller, what do you have to say? Answer: we are on top of the situation!! (As usual). Smh

Is she not part of the leaders...these people are taking us for granted herself inclusive, you all cannot be trusted...no jobs , no electricity, no water , insecurity, violation of human rights , these leaders are the teachers of corruption . They don't care how we feel , we are our own local government providing everythin we need ourselves ! instead of fixing the roads they buy jeeps, policemen who should make the streets safe are busy guarding them and their children. Nigerians don't want to put a man on the moon, we don't want private jets neither do we want to spend 10 years in school due to asuu strikes. We want jobs , we want killing of innocent people (especially women and children) to stop, we want clean water, we want electricity(not like our 'leaders' will invent electricity just borrow the technology), we want quality education, good roads, we want a good healthcare system ( we all can't fly out of the country like you 'leaders' do) we want you to respect us and stop toying with our lives. We want you to empower youths. Pls can we all use this forum to say what we the 'youths' want

yes,this is leadership failure. You can't blame the unemployed for going to take a test. The blame goes to government agency responsible for coordination of the test. We don't take health and safety seriously in Nigeria. We should be ashamed of how we treat our youth and those unemployed. There is no social safety and the government is not responsible for nothing in Nigeria. The president should be on tv right now telling us how his government has not been responsive to the situation of youth unemployment in this country. Shame on you Mr president! Shame on the immigration departmet for stealing from the poor young people in our country.2 billion nara, are you kidding me? Full refund should be made to each applicant as soon as possible. Shame on Nigeria for culture of failure.

Unfortunately she's not the president and even in the house, her (or her party's) powers are limited, being the minority. The senate is even worse - completely useless. More importantly, we need a responsible and proactive executive, not the current I-had-no-shoe one we have. The best thing you can do is to put away religious and tribal sentiments and vote for the right candidates in 2015 based on their abilities and antecedents.

This is very sad. This calls for a revolution but Nigerian youths are keeping quite. If it's to make stupid issues like 'oga on top & go and die' go viral they will, make stupid comics. Now this is a sensitive and shameful issue, they couldn't even match to aso rock from there. Even as people died. No paramedics on ground. What is the rationale behind collecting money from job seekers? Is it not their responsibility to provide jobs? Someone needs to account for this 2billion naira raised from innocent Nigerians. This kind of injustice and exploitation cannot happen in other countries. Nigerians stop being timid and cowardly and speak up. See the billions of naira they are wasting on national conference, each delegate is not getting less than 12million naira, for what? Yet Nigerian govt can pay welfare to unemployed graduates. Who is representing the youth, the unemployed in this national conference? Where is subsidy money? What has happened to the so called Sure-P scheme? Where is the missing 20billion dollars? This money will reach to fix our federal roads and do other things for us. How can they even wake up and tell us it's missing? Who took it or did the money suddenly grow wings? Nigerians ask questions! Revolt! Fight! And to think ppl lost their lives for this exam, am weeping bitterly. Our govt is myopic to our sufferings.

What positive Impact have you made in your Federal constituency and Nigeria at Large with your Jumbo salary, Hardship Allowance, this Allowance, That Allowance, Constituency Allocation etc. Have you pushed so hard for the passage of the Petroleum Industry Bill and other important Bills on the floor of the House of Rep? You only come on social media to get cheap attention from Gullible Nigerians whenever things like this happen. Mtcheeeeewww!

May the Souls of the Departed Youths Rest in Peace, Amen.

Not all the applicants are actually unemployed atleast I know more than five of my colleagues that went for the excercise even when they are still gainfully employed, we seems to so much attach importance to govt jobs these days even when we have alternatives and oppurtunity to become employers of labour, may their souls rest in peace!

Every failure of leadership obviously boils down to the caliber of people of people you choose as leaders. And if you get it wrong once, try to correct it the next time. That's what she's teaching your Neanderthal brain.

You're right Chemmy. But most Nigerians can't think straight like you. They'll still vote the same PDP next year because of tribal and religious sentiments that won't take them anywhere. Sounds mean, but Nigerians actually deserve their suffering.

This has revealed to the world the hypocrisy of the Nigeria government... it has shown to the world that what is on paper is actually a make-believe... a big lie.

Its a big big shame... very pathetic and outrageous. Very unbelievable. I am so speech less.. Smh.

How about if you simply shut up your smelling mouth next time,if you were that useful,why haven't you become a governor at least...is president Goodluck the comptroller general of NIS? You blame him for everything,you even blame him for burning your own food! Next time you hear the word 'leadership' get it into your head that it doesn't imply or refer to the president only...it refers to all those holding government posts/offices,learn to bring them into the picture too,and not showing your intellectual deficiency in public by calling your president a useless man and accusing him of all the mishaps in the country!

Its high time we tell ourselves the truth. Mrs Abike Dabiri should know that job creation is not the responsibility of the federal govt alone. Its a collective responsibilty. All hand must be on deck to make things work. Negative or destructive critisizm of the govt in power will not solve the problem. I believe she came from a contituecny; in what capacity has she created jobs in her contituency? When u point a finger at someone remember that the rest fingers are pointing at u. Lets not politicise any little thing we see. All we need to avert any calamity is SOLUTIONS!

I think u should rather nominate urself or make a suggestion and stop bringing God to the mess in this country.

We should all put religious, regional and tribal sentiments aside and vote right for people who we know of their achievements and performance in their various fields.

Madam abike,your a member of the house,talk about being proactive where were you and your colleagues when the immigration decided to exploit young Nigerians.
Why didn't you act then?
Instead because everything is about politics,you had to wait after people had lost their lives before acting,so as to make the other party look bad.
It's sad the Nigerian youth is treated badly.

ABIKE! You are as bad as the people who conducted and facilitated this evil. How can you come here indirectly talking about vote? When did people's vote count in Nigeria? You are also one of the leaders and should hide your head in the sand in shame and not talk about people voting right or wrong because that is not the issue here. I am 90% sure that your party most likely APC is as bad if not worse than PDP. I have never voted before because I do not know what I am voting for as I see frivolity everywhere. What I expect any party affiliate and everyone else to be asking and saying now is who are those wicked, evil, heartless and selfish-minded individuals who planned this wicked act called a recruitment program. How on this God given Earth can so called directors or people in-charge conduct a recruitment exercise for more than 90,000 people in stadia all over NIGERIA and they know they only need not more than 4000 people? They collected 1000 naira from each of them knowing fully well that the probability of them getting the job was less than 0.001%. Was health and safety of the applicants taken into consideration? I doubt 99%. Is this heartless and inhumane act not as bad as boko-haram menace? I tell you, if Boko Haram fighters got prior wind of this show of shame, and decided to strike, they would have had a field day in ALL the venues. It is common knowledge that those who would be employed eventually already know themselves and will not be anywhere near the stadia. The evil people who conducted or approved this show of shame know that too. Finally we all can rightly conclude it was a money spinning venture and people who think they can merit from other people's anguish and pain will never know peace and happiness. Rather that blood money will be their source of downfall. AMAKA

I agree with you,is time for change and the change should start from house of Rep.and senate cos'there is colossal waste of resources especially in the house of Rep. The level of corruption in the house is quite alarming. The problem is APC is not an alternative to take over power as they are 1000 times more corrupt than PDP. If only we can adopt the football system of hiring a foreign coach,i would have suggested we hire foreign president and foreign legislators or we start full revolution and people like Abike Dabiri should be the first to be dealt with.

Stop spilling rubbish, have u tried APC at the centre? U can never know until u try them. Give them 4 to 8 years at least, or are u saying we should continue with the parasite or disease called PDP? ACN states formed into APC are going through developments gradually. The fact is, Nigeria needs a fresh party and a different agenda to PDPs'. Foreigners or British cannot come and form a party and rule but Nigerians. Let's try APC at the federal level. If there is no change, that's when we will know they r the same, not when we have not tried them at the centre.

I just hate Abike for this statement. Using this situation to score cheap points. She should shut the fuck up! If she hates the situation of things, she should leave the house of representatives. Is she not gaining from the corruption that has put Nigerian youths in this position? She should shut up and not let Nigerians descend on her

Gesi said...

I will say that the Federal Government Executive Arm and the National Assembly should do their jobs by summoning the Comptroller General of the Nigerian Immigration Service "Mr David Parradang" and after the questioning whoever is responsible should be held accountable. The Nigerian Population should know about how the revenue which was generated through this exercise would be used to create jobs or how was this money spent. We also have to advice people like Mrs/Miss Abike, please stop insulting the intelligence of us Nigerians and think about how to do your job in which you where elected for by questioning those responsible for this Fiasco and stop playing politics with every little opportunity you get. After that we can talk about elections based on your performances, particularly when we hear that the National Assembly and the Legislative Arm have worked together by succeeding in jailing some people for this crime. Thank you.
