The federal government of Nigeria has announced that registration of unemployed Nigerians will begin on Wednesday, April 5.

We learnt that the announcement was made in Abuja on Monday by the Deputy Director, Information and Public Relations of the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), Edmund Onwuliri.

Onwuliri said the registration will help the government to collect up-to-date data of unemployed Nigerians so as to be able to link job seekers up with existing vacancies in the government, Vanguard reports.


He said: “The online portal which goes live on Wednesday April 5, 2017, is designed to capture the relevant details of any unemployed person. It will equally serve as a job exchange portal that will link job seekers and employers. 

“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 (EIT) on Thursday, April 6.”

Onwuliri said the portal address is: www.jobsforall.ng

He said: “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.”

Onwuliri said the the registration would go a long way to eliminate the stressful process of recruitment by employers, as well as employees in both the private and public sectors.

Meanwhile, the World Bank, under its Growth and Employment (GEM) project, has approved N756.3 million for disbursement to 81 young Nigerian innovators who participated in the 2016 Aso Villa Demo Day (AVDD).

The AVDD is one of the economic empowerment initiatives of the present administration.

A document obtained from the World Bank-funded GEM project on Monday in Abuja, showed that the money would be disbursed to the beneficiaries in two tranches after a grant signing ceremony earlier scheduled for end of March.

  3. I guess Buhari government is picking up now, when you check the comments here , it’s obvious that 90% of we graduate are satanically unemployed..

  4. Am surprised at the comments you guys are dropping here. I even wonder if most of you read the info to the end. the government is simply telling you that there want to form a database of the unemployed so that when there is a job vacancy in any firm that firm can likely go through the website and possibly call on those they deem qualify for the job, which will possibly lead to an interview. And some of you are telling us of your degrees you have acquired. some are even dropping their phone numbers, I guess for buhari to call you.
    Wake up Nigerians. Read with understanding.
