The Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN) has called for a common centralized database to be used by every employer of labour in Nigeria for job recruitment.
Head of BRISIN in Nigeria, Dr Anthony Uwa made the call in a statement at the weekend in Abuja.
A ccording to Uwa, if adopted, the platform will among other things, enable the government in power ascertain the number of jobs created per time in the country.
“BRISIN is proposing and coming up with a one stop shop for recruitment in Nigeria.
“Every Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDAs),corporate organisations and other employers’of labour will shop from the Data base.
“We also suggest that autonomous workers be registered in the data base for whatever activity they are into.
“The platform will reduce favoritism and corruption in employment process and encourage good labour management in both public and private organisations.
“It will also enable the government in power to know the number of jobs created at the local state and federal level during her administration,” Dr Uwa emphasised.
Uwa believes that having a centralised employment data base would not deny the private organisation their jobs, but help them to ascertain the rate of employment to the sector.
BRISIN is an integrated data and information system for the collection, storage, and distribution of data and information to support the management of the economy.
The aim is that the data received through the platform would be used to plan for the management of the nation’s resources.
It also gives new chances to labour management enhancement, he stated.
