The NDE boss represented at the event by the acting Coordinator in Kaduna, Madam Victoria W. Dada however reassured that the directorate has a passionate heart to empower unemployed youths and women on skills acquisition.

According to her, ” The NDE has trained and disbursed skills equipment to youths who completed its resettlement skills acquisition program.

“These youths are being provided with equipment to enable them to start their own business/workshops.” She said.

Madam Vichese M. Dada said that unemployment which has taken a new face globally has degenerated into worrisome proportions in and outside Nigeria.
