Governor Babagana Umara Zulum of Nigeria's Borno State has recently launched the new Borno Jobs Portal, up and running with a capacity of two million profiles across the state's 27 municipalities.

Created by the newly established State Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation under its Commissioner, Dr Babagana Mustapha, the portal was aimed at generating a database that will contain educational and professional expertise of all categories of citizens for the purpose of identifying potentials for employment at the federal, state, local government as well at the private sector levels to create opportunities for capacity development and entrepreneurship.

Launching the portal at the Council Chamber of the Government House Maiduguri, Governor Zulum said the portal aim to address youths unemployment contained in one of his ten points pacts upon which he based his pre-election campaign.

He also noted that database generated is to be used in not only creating jobs for applicants within the state but also, for a committee he has since established, to identify job opportunities at the federal and private sectors for Borno citizens who have education and skills required to fill available vacancies.
