NDE disburses resettlement loan to 50 beneficiaries in Adamawa


YOLA – The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) has disbursed resettlement loans to 50 graduates of its Community-Based Training Scheme (CBTS) in Bole community of Yola South Local Government of Adamawa.
The Adamawa Coordinator of NDE, Malam Ismaila Yar’adua, presented the package to the beneficiaries in a ceremony in Bole village on Monday.
He said the beneficiaries spent three months to train in five different skills, comprising shoe making, bed sheet, production of liquid soap, confectionery and phones repair.
Yar’adua urged the beneficiaries to live up to expectation by utilising their training to become self employed as well as be employers of labour.
“The disbursement of this loan under Community Based Training Scheme is the second in the state.
“It is designed to assist and enable the graduate trainees to establish their own workshops and businesses.
“They will not only become self-employed but also employers of other unskilled and unemployed youths.
“They will also become training outlets for other unskilled persons not only in Bole Community but in the state at large,” Yar’adua said.
The coordinator, who reiterated the NDE’s resolve to empower the under-privileged, said that the directorate would partner with stakeholders like state and local governments and NGOs, to create employment opportunities for the populace.
The District Head of Yola, Alhaji Sa’adu Bawuro, lauded NDE for its effort at empowering some people particularly those in the rural areas.
Bawuro urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity provided them and tasked other organisations and philanthropists to complement NDE in combating unemployment in the society.
Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Malam Aliyu Abdullahi, lauded NDE for what he described as touching their lives in a positive way.
“You gave us means of livelihood and something to be proud of and by the grace of God we will not disappoint you,” he said. (NAN)
