The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) Friday trained no fewer than 50 Plateau youths in behavioural disposition and skills acquisition in Jos, the state capital.

The Director General/Chief Executive Officer of the Directorate, Malam Nuhu Fikpo, said the training was aimed at empowering the youths on behavioural change towards entrepreneurship.

Represented by Malam Yusuf Umar, he said “it is specifically designed to empower youths with skills to compete globally in market trends.”

The state coordinator of the Directorate, Malam Ibrahim Hardo Abdulazeez, in his remarks, said the training, being the first in the state by the Vocational Skills Development Department under its Youths Transformation Training Scheme, was designed to instill behavioural change in beneficiaries and also to teach them financial intelligence.

“The programme will teach beneficiaries how to handle money in a proper way by setting priorities and following them through. The combination of skills acquisition and the transformation of behaviour will facilitate the desired change in the perception of youths about their environment,” he said.

A representative of the beneficiaries, Ms. Roseline Shakunga, thanked the NDE for the opportunity and gave the assurance that they would put in their best to compete globally using the skills acquired.
