Following a directive by the management of NDE, led by the director-general, Nuhu Fikpo, the registration is slated to hold across all states in the federation.

On Thursday, the NDE coordinator in Bayelsa, Aham Osuchukwu, told journalists in Yenagoa  that the registration was for all unemployed persons in Bayelsa, irrespective of their states of origin, NAN reports.


He said NDE was focused on addressing unemployment through its various training in skills acquisition, disbursement of loans and other interventions.

“NDE caters to all strata of society, from the uneducated to the educated. The common thing amongst them is unemployment. The uneducated can be made to acquire skills and become artisans in skills areas of choice,’’ Mr Osuchukwu said.

The NDE coordinator added that the registration was free and stressed that the National Identification Number was a prerequisite for the process. He said other information required were personal details such as age, ward, local government area, educational qualification and email or residential address.
