The Federal Government has come out to advise unskilled and unemployed Nigerians to take advantage of the National Directorate of Employment, NDE, employment creation programmes to be self-employed.

The Minister of State, Labour and Employment, Mr. Festus Keyamo, recently revealed this in his message to the NDE Special Day at the just-concluded Enugu International Trade Fair.

According to him, about 96,000 unemployed youths and women have recruited and trained in various vocational skills by the NDE from January 2018 till now, so it is obviously serving a purpose.

He added that a total of 13,000 graduates of vocational skills have been resettled with basic equipment and start-up capital, and more will be done in the future.
