While answering a question from one of the interviewers, Senator Gbenga Obadara said; “Four PhD and 200 master’s degree holders have applied.”

“Poverty is ravaging. Unemployment is extremely on the high rise. People with master’s degrees and even PhD degrees are applying for 20,000 jobs. That is the problem. It cannot cover everybody. We cannot blame the Federal Government.” he added.

Obadara said the committee started distribution of forms four weeks ago and that almost 20,000 persons from 20 local government areas had obtained the forms.
