NDDC To Create 6,300 Jobs For Youths In Online Marketing


- Advertisment -
The Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has earmarked 6,300 jobs for youths in the Niger Delta region.

Beneficiaries of the scheme that will include unemployed youths, university undergraduates as well as persons in employment who desire to earn more cash, will be trained by online marketing giant, KONGA.COM.

According to the NDDC acting managing director, Mrs Ibim Semenitari, the entrepreneurship training will create jobs and offer financial stability to families.

Semenitari stated that the partnership between NDDC and KONGA.COM is one of the numerous ways the commission under her, is reducing unemployment in the Niger Delta region and creating new entrepreneurs.

She stated that the beneficiaries of the job creation, who will  be drawn from the nine mandate states of the commission, will not only become prospective big income earners but have prospects to establish similar retail chains like KONGA.COM.

The NDDC boss said, “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, who said that the commission was determined to create entrepreneurs from the Niger Delta region, added that the NDDC/KONGA.COMpartnership is one of the avenues towards achieving the goal.
