NDE, Aisha Buhari initiative to lift 1,200 women nationwide
The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) and the pet project of wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, Future Assured Initiative, would train 1,200 women across the six geo-political zones of the country.
Speaking at the flag-off of the empowerment programme in Katsina, the Acting Director General of the NDE, Kunle Obayan, while lauding the wife of the President for the initiative, said the social burden of mass unemployment has made it imperative for any government the world over to think outside of the box in order to address the trend.
He highlighted that the principle of partnership in tackling mass unemployment is the paradigm shift that will drive the new quest for employment for all classes of the unemployed in the country.
He added: “For us in the NDE, women are a critical group in this new order and we are glad the mother of the nation has taken the lead in this direction. Our hope is that at the end of the training, 200 new small scale businesses would have been injected into the economy of Katsina state.”
