Nigeria’s Vice President, Kashim Shettima, will on Monday (today) in Gombe State, launch the Outsource To Nigeria Initiative, a private sector-led, government-enabled programme.

Nigeria is expected to benefit immensely from the global outsourcing market which has grossed almost $350 billion for seven top countries of the world
The Initiative is part of efforts and determination to actualise the agenda of President Tinubu’s administration on job creation.

Deputy Chief of Staff to the President, Ibrahim Hadejia, who disclosed this at a Media conference in Abuja, noted that OTNI when successfully rolled out across the country will be the fastest way to achieving job security for Nigeria’s teeming youths.

Hadejia explained that jobs created in the outsourcing sector are lucrative, saying the market is growing rapidly and is projected to grow to over half a trillion dollars by 2030.

The Deputy Chief of Staff to the President urged other State governors to emulate Gombe and leverage the opportunity created by the OTNI launch to provide good jobs for youths in their respective States.

Chief Executive Office of Outsource Global, Amal Hassan, the promoter of the programme, said the launch of OTNI on March 4, 2024, simultaneously in Gombe, Abuja and Kaduna will mark a turning point in Nigeria’s business process and outsource sector.

OTNI is expected to promote the outsourcing industry in Nigeria and create meaningful employment opportunities in the short and long term for youths with unique skill sets across different sectors.

No fewer than 1,000 Nigerians in Gombe State will be gainfully employed after the training of participants
