NDE urges Nigerians to encourage local business initiatives

NDE urges Nigerians to encourage local business initiatives

The National Director­ate of Employment (NDE) has urged Nigerians to encourage the growth of local busi­ness initiatives in a quest to boost the economy as well as create jobs for young Ni­gerians.
Speaking at the 38th edi­tion of Kaduna Trade Fair, Acting Director General of NDE, Mr Kunle Obanya, also called for more collab­orative efforts between the private and public sectors to tackle the challenge of unemployment.
Obanya said govern­ment alone cannot effec­tively shoulder the burden of employment creation es­pecially under the current economic situation facing the nation.
He, therefore, called on all other stakeholders to support the Director­ate in resettling benefi­ciaries of its programmes and schemes who, due to paucity of funds, may not enjoy any form of start-up from the Directorate.
“Equally, I urge all cat­egories of the unemployed to embrace the great op­portunities for self-reli­ance as presented in all states of the federation through the National Di­rectorate of Employment. Let me equally re-affirm the commitment of the NDE to the continual pro­vision of innovative em­ployment creation models that will always compli­ment the micro economic policies of the federal gov­ernment.
Explaining the reason behind its participation at the trade fair, the acting DG said trade fairs and exhibitions generally re­main a veritable channel through which beneficia­ries of the Directorate are exposed and can gain valu­able access to the business world where great growth opportunities abound.
