The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has earmarked 6,300 jobs for youths in the Niger Delta, the Acting Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, disclosed on Tuesday. She said via a statement issued by her Media Aide Bekee Anyalewechi that beneficiaries of the scheme will include unemployed youths, university undergraduates as well as persons in employment who desire to earn more cash.

Semenitari said those who register for the scheme would be trained by online marketing giant, Konga.com. She said the entrepreneurship training will create jobs and offer financial stability to families.

The NDDC boss remarked that the partnership between her organisation and Konga is one of the numerous ways the commission under her watch is reducing unemployment in the Niger Delta region and creating new entrepreneurs.

She said that the beneficiaries, to be drawn from the nine mandate states of NDDC, will not only become prospective big income earners but have prospects to establish similar retail chains like Konga.com.

“Our target for those 6,300 youths goes beyond giving them the opportunity to acquire knowledge in online retail business which is creating billions of naira patronage in Nigeria and overseas, they also stand to earn for themselves sustainable livelihood and would in future, be employers of labour,” Semenitari said.

She stressed the determination of the commission to create entrepreneurs from the Niger Delta region, adding that the partnership with Konga is one of the avenues towards achieving the goal.

“The 6,300 beneficiaries are expected to undergo training at designated centres in the 9 states prior to their full engagement,” Semenitari said.
