Employment Generation: LAPO Recruits 156 Staff In Q1 Of 2023
A Non-Governmental Organization, Lift Above Poverty Organization (LAPO) contributed to employment generation in Nigeria with the employment of 156 staff members in the First Quarter of 2023.
The newly recruited staff which includes nine Branch Managers, 141 Client Support Officers and Six Data Entry Staff brings the total staff strength in the organization to 1,775 and over 10,000 across the LAPO Ecosystem.
In his congratulatory message, the Executive Director, Dr Honestus Ayo Obadiora charged the new employees to imbibe the virtues of integrity, honesty and commitment to duty, which he said accounts largely for the exponential growth the organization has recorded over the years.
He said LAPO places top priority on staff career development and overall wellbeing; allocating resources and providing motivational incentives for better performance.
Dr Obadiora expressed worry about the staggering rate of unemployment in Nigeria, noting that more than 55.4% of young adults between the ages of 18 and 35 are unemployed and an additional 20% working below their skillset.
He, therefore, reaffirmed the commitment of LAPO to addressing the challenges of youth unemployment, restiveness and poverty in the country through job creation and business support services.
