The Federal
Government has commenced an online registration for unemployed Nigerians for
the sole reason of collecting up to date data of unemployed individuals in the
country. Although, I stated the title of this post to be the way it was, because
through this ongoing measures deployed by the FG to collect the data of
unemployed Nigerians, many will be linked to existing vacancies in government
agencies and in private sectors. Read on to get more information concerning
this new development in the country.


This new
development in the country was stated to the public during the course of speech
made by the Deputy Director, Information and Public Relations of the National
Directorate of Employment (NDE), whose label identity (Name), is Edmund Onwuliri,
in the past Monday, at Abuja.
Mr. Edmund
Onwuliri, pronounced that the registration was initiated in order to meet up
with NDE’s mandate “to obtain and maintain a data bank on unemployment and
vacancies in the country.”

He further
said that the exercise will make the directorate to serve as a clearing house
linking or referring job seekers with existing opportunities or vacancies in
government agencies and also in private sectors in order for them to get
employed.  

This is a
step in a right direction for those that are yet to be employed and those who
are about to graduate from various schools and same time, for firms and
entities that provides Job opportunities. As this will serve as a job exchange
portal, that will link job seekers and employers together. So in other words, the
online portal which the Deputy Director, Information and Public Relations of
the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) spoke of has been opened for all
unemployed individuals to make their registration using the necessary required
details. The online portal in talk, just opened today being Wednesday 5th
of April, 2017.

He also said,
“There will be a practical demonstration of the workings of the portal at the
NDE stand at the ongoing 28th edition of the Enugu International Trade on the
coming Thursday”
The address
of the online registration portal was further stated by him as: Jobsforall.

He
continued…

“The
directorate sees this initiative as a bold step toward deepening the
effectiveness of its employment creation strategies and a critical input into
the process of designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating programmes
and schemes.”


The deputy
director continued by making all to understand that, the online portal would
enhance and make employment go smoothly, without having the cumbersome process
of recruitment by employers of skilled labor in private and public sectors. As
this initiative will link up unemployed people seeking for job to their
prospective employers with ease.

In this
current situation of the country, I hope and pray this initiative helps to
reduce the high rate of unemployment in the country.
