NDE tasks youths on employment



By Ayinde Olaide

Mr. Lawan Yaya, State Coordinator, National Directorate of Employment, Bauchi State Section, called on young people to adopt its various skills training and vocational training programs.

Yaya made the appeal to Bauchi on Wednesday when a group, under the umbrella of the Bauchi State Association for Youth Development (BSAYD), presented him with an award of excellence.

The state coordinator explained that the mandate of the NDE was to reduce unemployment in the country.

He noted that the agency was doing its best to ensure that the warrant was feasible in Bauchi state.

According to him, the many skills acquisition and vocational training programs of NDEs aim to eradicate unemployment in the country.

Yaya urged young people, especially the unemployed and underemployed, to patronize the body.

“Our mandate is to reduce unemployment in the country and try to provide mass employment opportunities to the teeming unemployed youth of the country.

“In Bauchi State, we are doing our best to see that we are fulfilling this mandate and with your help, I mean the press, I hope you will disseminate our programs to the masses.

“They should attend NDEs; they should come to us because we have so many training opportunities, so many job opportunities abound in that direction.

“We call on people to come to NDE for training and skills training,” he said.

Yaya said he was excited about the award given to him by BASYD.

The coordinator added that he had no idea the group was keeping an eye on the performance of NDEs in the state.

“What touched me the most was that this association monitored the activities of state ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) and we never knew they were watching, evaluating and measuring performance.

“They had conducted surveys and research on the development of MDAs; and NDE was selected for this award and we are really excited and happy about it, ”he said.

Mr. Imrana Bala, Chairman of BSAYD, said the award was given to NDE based on careful observation and research conducted in the state.

He said the state coordinator of NDE has brought the less privileged into all of the leadership’s programs.

Bala added that with his determination to empower young people, many programs implemented by NDE, which were not known to the population, were broadcast.

“Our young people have learned a lot from skills training programs with him, such as sewing, mechanics, masonry, tie and dye, among others.

“However, no one knows that there were such programs in NDEs in the past, but during Yaya’s tenure, we learned that these programs existed in NDEs,” he said. (NOPE)
