Ngige urges unemployed Youths to register at the online job portal

Minister-of-labourThe Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige has advised unemployed Nigerians to reg­ister at the online job portal of the Social Intervention Scheme of the Federal Government in order to benefit from different categories of programmes which government is offering. He ex­plained that the registration on the portal, ( will end on Wednesday, August 31, 2016.
Ngige, who made this call at the weekend while flag­ging-off the National Direc­torate of Employment (NDE), School-To-Work Programme in Calabar, Cross River State, said: “Unfortunately as we speak, by last week, the portal has only recorded about 1.2 million per­sons. We expect more persons to have been registered in the portal before our screening ex­ercise. The portal closes 31st Au­gust 2016 which is just few days away.”
The minister further ex­plained: “For those who are not computer literate, we advise state governments to encour­age them by using local gov­ernment chairmen to move into local government areas and reg­ister the unemployment persons there, so that they can qualify to be considered for the scheme. Each state of the federation is expected to recruit about 1,500 persons.”
