Nigeria has a fast-growing population of over 220 million people, and the burden of unemployment has been prevalent over time. The country’s labour force was predicted to increase to over 67 million in 2022 and there is a need to ensure that employment is readily available as more citizens enter the job market.

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR as part of the Renewed Hope Agenda of his administration, is committed to creating gainful employment for the teeming youth. President Tinubu’s vision for economic development and poverty reduction in Nigeria includes supporting artisans and promoting industrial development through a strong workforce of skilled individuals.

Many employment initiatives target the white-collar industry but the Honourable Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite, is launching a massive campaign that targets the blue-collar industry to ensure inclusiveness in job creation drive of the Federal Government.

The absence of a coordinated effort to certify and license artisans has further deepened the skills gap and also brought to light the need to upscale unlicensed and uncertified artisans. The Federal Government is committed to promoting skills development for artisans and fostering a society based on shared prosperity, tolerance, compassion, and equal treatment of all citizens. The Federal Government is also determined to tackle the skills deficiency among artisans and standardize artisanal practice in the country.

SUPA is a comprehensive initiative aimed at aiding quality service delivery through the certification and licensing of artisans to promote the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises. The programme ensures the availability of a skilled workforce for domestic industries, thereby reducing labour import dependency. This programme is targeted at empowering 10 million hard-working Nigerians in two years. This initiative reflects the government’s commitment towards promoting economic development and improving the standard of living for its citizens across all industries.
