NDE cautions Coordinators against malpractices, to recruit 23,220 trainees nationwide
Plans are underway by the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), to commence the recruitment of about 23,220 trainees nationwide.
The Director General of the Directorate, Dr Nasiru Argungu, who made this known recently in Jalingo, Taraba, through the NDE State Coordinator, Aderemi Adebisi, said 30 trainees would be recruited from each local government of councils of the state.
Argungu said the training will take place in all the 774 local government areas in Nigeria, adding that the recruitment exercise, which commenced under the Basic National Open Apprenticeship Scheme (B-NOAS), would help address the unemployment challenge confronting the country.
“At the end of the training, graduate trainees will be fully ready to compete favourably in the business world. The 36 states as well as the Federal Capital Territory, would engage the services of proficient and well-established trainers to carry out the training,” he said.
He said the NDE state offices would choose the skills set that will last for three months and recruit 30 trainees per local government councils.
Warning the state coordinators to desist from the habit of recycling trainees for the same training, he hinted that any state found flouting the directive will face the consequences.
Urging the prospective trainees to take the exercise serious, regular monitoring and supervisions, according to him, would be jointly carried out by the directorate at both state and federal levels.
