Youths Empowered By NDE For Environmental Beautification

No less than 26 people in Edo State have been given authority by the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) after receiving training in the directorate’s environmental beautification program.
The starter kits and monetary sums of N130,000, N150,000, and N180,000 were given to the 26 beneficiaries who completed the three-month training in three crucial training programs in soft landscaping, hard landscaping, and plaster of Paris (POP), respectively.
The program was under the Environmental Beautification Training Scheme (EBTS) of the directorate’s Special Public Work Department, according to Mr. Solomon Edobor, the Edo State Coordinator of NDE, who was speaking on behalf of NDE Director General Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo. It was designed to give unemployed youths jobs.
According to him, the Federal Government’s employment creation programs include the Environmental Beautification Training Scheme, which was started by NDE’s Special Public Works and aims to encourage environmental regeneration in habitats in both urban and rural areas.
Edobor said the exercise was appropriate and essential for the country’s economic development. The beneficiaries underwent three months of training as a result of which they were empowered with startup kits and revolving loans as start-up grants.
Regarding the repayment of the loans, Edobor stated that the directorate has set up all necessary machinery to monitor the recipients and make sure they pay back their loans so that other people can benefit from the scheme.
Speaking at the same time, Idris Dauda Muhamood, who was Dr. Mrs. Olaomi Roseline’s representative and the director of NDE’s public works division, said, “Thirty people were recruited for the training, but at the end of the training, 26 were taken due to NDE’s lean purse, and they are the ones being empow­ered today.”
