In Abuja the nation’s capital on Monday, the Deputy Director, Information and Public Relations of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), Edmund Onwuliri said that the Federal Government is to commence registration of unemployed Nigerians online from Wednesday April 5.
According to Onwuliri, the registration is to collect data of the currently unemployed Nigerians which is in compliance with the mandate of the NDE to “obtain and maintain a data bank on unemployment and vacancies in the country.”
“The online portal which goes live on Wednesday April 5, 2017, is designed to capture the relevant details of any unemployed person. It will equally serve as a job exchange portal that will link job seekers and employers.
“There will be a practical demonstration of the workings of the portal at the NDE stand at the ongoing 28th edition of the Enugu International Trade on Thursday”, he said.
“The directorate sees this initiative as a bold step toward deepening the effectiveness of its employment creation strategies and a critical input into the process of designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating programmes and schemes.”
