Good News: FG Begins Online Registration Of Unemployed Nigerians

The Federal Government will commence the
online registration of unemployed persons in
the country on Wednesday.

According to the Deputy Director, Information
& Public Relations, National Directorate of
Employment (NDE),Edmund Onwuliri, the
development is a part of the government
quest to keep a robust data base for
unemployed persons and provide jobs.

The registration, according to him, is in
compliance with the third mandate of the
NDE which requires it “to obtain and
maintain a data bank on employment and
vacancies in the country with a view to
acting as a clearing house to link job seekers
with vacancies in collaboration with other
government agencies.

Onwuliri said the framework for the online
registration, being handled by the Directorate
has been completed and ready for lunch;
adding that the NDE has also completed the
framework for the electronic registration of
unemployed persons in Nigeria.

He said that the online portal which goes live on
Wednesday April 5, 2017, is designed to
capture the relevant details of any
unemployed person. It will equally serve as a
job exchange portal that will link job seekers
and employers.

“There will be a practical demonstration of
the workings of the portal at the NDE stand
at the on-going 28th edition of the Enugu
International Trade on Thursday April 6,
2017. However, the portal can be accessed
by logging on to .

The Directorate sees this initiative as a bold step
towards deepening the effectiveness of its
employment creation strategies and a critical
input into the process of designing,
implementation, monitoring and evaluation of
programmes and schemes.

The online portal will also serve as a
meeting point for job seekers and employers
thereby reducing the cumbersome process of
recruitment among employers of skilled
labour in the private and public sectors.
