The move comes after eight years to recognize the students who have graduated in the state since the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) as the state government led by Governor Rizik Zackaria Hassan pledged for more consideration of job employments to the graduates.
On Friday, Western Bahr el Ghazal state government organized a meeting with all graduates living in the state and called for formation of committee to take a database of all graduates both in the state and outside the continent originating from Western Bahr el Ghazal.
“Last few days, the state government had been holding meetings to find out the status of the young graduates who are roaming around without jobs,” said the governor adding that the state government would soon take necessary measures to consider their conditions.
Governor said last week that Juba University has graduated 49 young fresh students who are helpful in building the new nation with their current experience.
“ Organizing the list of graduates in the state will surely help the state government in planning the new jobs to the its people based on their qualifications,” said Hassan while urging the graduates who graduated in Arabic to start doing English courses that will enable them to share their work experience with their colleagues.
This is the first time that Western Bahr el Ghazal state government has drawn a road map to the young graduates in the state.
A young graduate Salwa Eid Abas called on the state government to give them jobs.
